Finally have a minute to catch up after the last two jam-packed days -- just wanted to give you a taste of the American Idol Experience event with the promise that more details and photos will be coming in the next day or so!
The festivities started with a motorcade featuring about 20 past American Idol contestants, including Sanjaya, he of the ever-changing hairdos (below).
Many of the Idol celebrities stopped to speak on the BLUE (not red) carpet, including Bucky Covington.
Once inside the Idol theater, we were surprised with a short speech from Jay Rasulo and a
very unexpected host, Ryan Seacrest -- and judge Paula Abdul.
The Idol show was just great, but even better, it was capped off with performances by David Cook, the most recent Idol winner, and Grammy award-winner Carrie Underwood.
Like I said, this is just a taste of the press event -- more coming about the new attraction and many other things... soon!
