Concert review: Crowd swoons over their 'Idols'

By Wendy Maxey
Special to The Roanoke Times

"American Idol" came to 202 Market in Roanoke on Thursday night, and Simon Cowell was NOT in the house. The only people in the house were Jason Castro and Blake Lewis' adoring fans -- about 300 of them --and their camera flashes.

U2 (who played in Charlottesville) didn't have anything on those guys.

The "Pretty in Pink Ladies Night Out," a benefit for breast cancer, certainly brought the ladies out -- most of them for Castro, "Idol's" fourth runner-up during season seven.

"It was a big pull to have them here, but honestly the 'Pretty in Pink' [fundraiser] is what brought us here first," said Tracy Powers, a teacher at Northside Middle School.

When the K92 Mornin' Thang (one of the show's sponsors) auctioned off a seat next to Castro during his performance, the house just about came down although the price tag was up -- at $1,000. I'm not sure that Castro would even get this kind of welcoming at FloydFest.

Castro, whose self-titled debut album is due out Nov. 17, brought tears to the eyes of some not to mention a singalong -- with his sweet rendition of "Hallelujah."

Lewis, "Idol's" infamous human beat box, hit the stage with just as many fans.

"I think he's precious," said grandma Pam Fisher. "I like his smile. His music is not my style, but he is cute."

Lewis is promoting his new album, "Heartbreak on Vinyl," which will hit stores on Tuesday.

I got the chance to sit backstage with Castro and Lewis before my deadline. "Let's do something together," said Lewis. "All right, man, what?" said Castro. "Maybe some Jason Mraz?" said Lewis, who practiced Mraz's hit song "I'm Yours," with a little beat box rhythm. "Yeah, let's do it," said Castro, who said he was going backstage to learn the chords on his ukulele.

Hey! Listen up, Roanoke: Apparently the key to bringing people out is to bring in the "Idols."
