So tonight is the American Idol concert and I’m very excited. Amy told me about the idea of going down early this afternoon to see if we could meet any of the contestants. Alas, I didn’t go, and from her Twitter accounts she did get the autographs of a few people – which makes me laugh since she’s going to meet them all tonight since she finagled backstage passes from a friend of hers. Isn’t almost pointless to get autographs NOW? Although it still makes for the total experience, right? AND by getting the autographs now she doesn’t seem like a giggly fangirl tonight after the show.
Anyway, I’ve got all my technology ready to go. I’d take Denis’ camera, but I don’t want to take a chance that they won’t be allowed, so I’m taking my Blackberry and CootieGirl’s little point and click videocamera that fits in my pocket. Hopefully I’ll be close enough (second center section) that any video I take won’t make the singers look like ants, but we’ll see. Like I said, I don’t want to get there with Denis’ camera only to have them tell me I can’t bring it in.
All I know is I’m VERY excited about seeing David Cook sing live. Of all the past winners, he’s the only one thus far that inspired me enough to buy the concert ticket.
