Before the Show

Alright so we got to the Palace at around 2:30ish and waited outside for the Idols. It was pretty cold at first but then it warmed up a little bit. We were waiting out there for sooo long and security wouldn't let us go by the barricades. We were all standing on the side of the building instead. After being out there for about 2 1/2 hours, we heard a bunch of screaming. I turned around and guess who I see waving from the window? KRIS ALLEN. And then about 5 minutes later, Matt Giraud pops up in the window of the building and starts waving to all of us. I couldn't believe they were actually RIGHT THERE. omg.gif Matt pulled out his camera and started recording all of us. Then he motioned for us to get louder which we of course did. tongue.gif A few minutes after seeing Matt, Megan & Anoop looked out the window & also wove to us. grin.gif heart.gif Then I saw Matt's tweet saying that he would be coming out to see us soon, so I was REALLY excited.

We weren't allowed to get in our seats until 5:30. So at like, 5:20 Matt still wasn't out so me & my mom went inside. We didn't think he'd be coming out, but he did. I'm reallyyy upset that we missed him because he was in my top 3 all season. sad.gif But it's okay, because what happened after the show with a certain other Idol certainly made up for it. whistling.gif

So we got to our seats a little after 5:30 and they were alot better than I expected (upper level, row 5). We went to go get some food and brought it back to our seats. However, I couldn't eat because I was SO nervous. I entered the contest from Megan's official website to win AP passes and since Jill (Megan's mom) was out of town, she wasn't sending emails out to the winners. So to find out if I won, I had to go to will call at 6 pm. So I did. And my name wasn't on the list. I was absolutely crushed. A few Megan fans got in contact with Angie (Megan's cousin) and Garrett (the person who runs her website) and they both said I should have been on the list. So I was really, really upset that I wasn't on there.

I had to try really hard not to cry but there was something that cheered me up a bit. When I turned around, guess who I saw? Matt's DAD (along with other friends & family). I knew it was him right away because I recognized him from the show. But then I noticed his shirt. It was white & in black writing it said "Matt G's Dad" and he was wearing a fedora. HOW CUTE IS THAT?! laughing.gif heart.gif He was taking pictures with a bunch of fans and I reallllyyy wanted to, but I was still upset about the passes so that was the only thing on my mind.

I got back to my seat and decided to just forget about my lost chance at meeting Megan & the rest of the Idols. I reminded myself how lucky I was to be there and that I'd be seeing ALL of them perform LIVE in just a matter of minutes.

The Show


Michael Sarver
I have to say, he was one of the best of the night. In Love With A Girl was a PERFECT song choice to open up the show with. He got everyone pumped up and the crowd really responded well. For a long time I was upset that he made the tour instead of Alexis, but after Wednesday night I can say that he deserved it 100%. Someone also threw a stuffed animal for him on stage which he put on his shoulder while he was singing. laughing.gif

Megan Joy
Ahh MEGAN! Of course I loved her, she is my favorite. I've watched every performance of hers on youtube from each show and it is so obvious how much more comfortable she is on stage. I still feel SO bad for her that they made her wear that dress & those heels, but girl knows how to WORK IT. I screamed my face off for her whole set and felt so proud of her. grin.gif During the clapping part of Tears Dry On Their Own she was like "I MEAN IT!" and then it got louder and she was like "That's better!" laughing.gif heart.gif Her hair was also in a side frohawk thing and I really, really liked it. Besides the fact that it's a big EFF YOU to TPTB, she also looked fierce. She was kind of channeling Syesha Mercado with that do.


It goes black during TDOTO because I put my camera in my lap to clap along. laughing.gif

Scott MacIntyre

Scott is TEN times better live than what he was on the show. His voice has gotten alot stronger and he picked really good songs for his set. His banter with the crowd in between songs was hilarious. roll.gif During A Thousand Miles, the whole crowd was singing along (at least from what I could hear) and he got a great response.



His pictures didn't really turn out good. sad.gif

Lil Rounds

I always felt like Lil was treated unfairly on the show. You could tell it messed with her confidence alot. But on Wednseday, it was a completely different Lil than what we saw on the show. She owned that stage and she looked so comfortable doing it. I was really, really impressed with her. After her 'No One' performance my mom turned to me & said that was her favorite so far, and Lil wasn't even on her list of favorites.

Anoop Desai

I still don't think I've recovered from his set. His voice is just so SMOOTH and flawless. The crowd absolutely loved him. He's going to be signed soon, that's for sure. He's too good to be ignored. His set went by wayyy too fast for me. I wanted him to perform for forever. laughing.gif My favorite had to have been My Prerogative, but all 3 songs were perfect. heart.gif He also gave a shoutout to Matt in between sets. grin.gif

Matt Giraud

AHH THE HOMETOWN BOY! The crowd went absolutely nuts for him, it was amazing to be there live. The fact that he's not signed yet is just INSANE. He performs on that stage like he's been doing it for 50 something years. And his piano playing? Unbelievable. I was just in awe the whole time. He definitely made Michigan proud. heart.gif

Top 10-5 Medley

I LOVE THIS. Everything was great. The Lilegan duet, the dueling pianos, Michael's solo, and of course...Beggin. Whoever decided they should sing that song to close out the first half is BRILLIANT. However, in the middle of the song there were some mic issues. They were singing, but you couldn't hear anything. Other than that, it was perfect.

Intermission

At intermission, Heather (heathurr from the Megan forums here) texted me and said I should go back to will call and see if my AP passes were in. She talked to Angie and just like earlier, she said that I should be on the list. She said that sometimes they come in late, so I might still have a chance. So when I went to will call, I asked if there were any passes waiting for me. They looked in the box where the passes were, and there was nothing for me. Then they showed me the list so I could double check. I looked under "guest of Megan Joy" which is where I would have been, but I wasn't there. So, just like before the show, I was crushed yet again. But then I remembered that Allison was coming up next, so I got really excited again. grin.gif

Allison Iraheta

She was UNREAL. The only problem I had was with So What. She sounded great, but I think the band behind her was too loud so you could barely hear her. But Cry Baby gave me goosebumps. I get chills just watching youtube videos of it & listening to the studio version on my iPod (I'm not even kidding) but when you see it live? Holy fuuuu- Absolutely incredible. I also LOOOVED Barracuda. I wish she had gotten more than 3 songs (and the duet).

Danny Gokey

Danny sounds alot different live. On the show, it always sounded like he needed to clear his voice (IMO). But live, his vocals were alot more smooth & clear. His dancing during Maria Maria was surprisingly great. laughing.gif My only problem with his set was the order. I think he should have split up the two Rascal Flatts songs to even it up more. Other than that, I was pleasantly surprised. I think his best moment was Maria Maria and that should be the direction he goes musically, not country. But the country songs were good too.

You can't replace Santo, you copy his spirit. You find a way to find the good in everything, every day. You laugh at yourself as heartily as you laugh with others. You suffer without complaint and stand tall in the face of disappointment. You battle.

Adam Lambert

What can I say about Adam that hasn't already been said? He was absolutely amazing. I really felt like I was watching a star up there. Whole Lotta Love was such a perfect song to open up with. The Bowie Medley was reallllyyyy entertaining. And Slow Ride, of course, was perfect. I was surprised nothing was thrown on stage during their duet. laughing.gif

AHHHHHH. spaz.gif I can't say enough good things about his set. It was freaking PERFECTION. He couldn't have picked better songs. My only problem? IT WAS TOO SHORT. Seriously, I just wanted him to sing forever. haha.gif Bright Lights was my favorite, especially when him & Tim play their guitars together. heart.gif And I also loved how during Ain't No Sunshine the curtain fell. That was so cool. He was such a natural up there. I can't wait until he starts doing solo shows because I know I'll be first in line to see him. His voice just keeps getting stronger and he's just....perfect.









I wish I could have gotten more video from his set, but I barely had any minutes left on my camera & I wanted to save it for DSB. sad.gif
