American Idols Live ~~ The Details

So for Kim's birthday, her dear husband Glen bought her American Idols Live tickets. She graciously invited me to go and I accepted. So yesterday Kim and I went to dinner at Red Robin and then to the American Idols Live concert. They don't allow cameras in the Energy Solutions arena and I didn't want to lose my camera for trying to sneak it in so we took a photo outsie before the concert. The first one wasn't a great picture. Kim had her eyes closed!
So here is the second picture! It was MUCH better. It turned out very cute! :)
So when we first walked in they handed us this card to get our picture taken on the "red carpet" in front of the TV Guide backdrop. It was a very cute picture if I do say so myself! We pretended we were oh so important!

So then we found our seats. They were very good seats on the right side of the stage and we could see everything. Before the show started there were two security guard looking guys on the stage. When the show started one started walking across the stage and I knew right away it was Blake dressed up as a security guard. He had a wig and hat on so it took a while for everyone to realize it was him. The show was so much fun. The energy these guys give was contagious. They did a great job! The top 10 idols were there. Miss American Idol 2007 herself Jordin Sparks, Blake Lewis, Melinda Doolittle, LaKisha Jones, Chris Richardson, Phil Stacey, Sanjaya Malakar, Haley Scarnato, Gina Glocksen, Chris Sligh. There were country songs, rock songs, America the Beautiful was sung by Phil Stacey in his navy uniform, and Blake beat boxed (is that what it's called??? sorry!) It was a fantasic show. We hardly stayed in our seats. At one point I looked over at Kim and she was jammin to the music. I was like GO KIM!!!! We danced, sang along, screamed, clapped and laughed. I would TOTALLY go back see them again. So if they are coming on tour near you, go see them. It's a blast! When we were leaving, the poptart guys were handing out free poptarts. Brennan was soo excited to see that I brought him poptarts home. They are his favorite! :) What a fun time! Thanks so much Kim! I'll never forget it! HUGS!!!!!
