American Idols Live 2009!

Yesterday Manga Dork, me, Dr. Hubby's aunt, and her 2 daughters headed to Pittsburgh, PA to see the American Idols. Of course no girls day out is complete without lunch at a great restaurant (Cheddars) and a little retail therapy (Tanger Outlets). We got stuck in traffic (Pittsburgh Pirates had a game too) and had to RUN from the parking garage to Mellon Arena.

Our butts hit the seats just as they started playing the AI theme...

Micheal Sarver (Oil Rig Guy) went first. He is quite the performer.

Megan Joy looked beautiful...those heels were awesome! Thank goodness she did not sing Rockin' Robin!

Scott was so in his element behind the piano...but I must admit...I took this chance to sneak off to the bathroom...bad Scrappy!

Lil Rounds was fun.fun.fun! She sang Single Ladies (minus Beyonce's hideous bodysuit).

Manga Dork nearly popped out of the stands when Anoop came on stage...she screamed...she jumped...she clapped...she SMILED! He was rockin' some purple high tops...hmmm.

I so could have used this as a bathroom break too...Matt was best when behind his piano.

The guys looked so cute during this performance...Megan and Lil joined them too.

During intermission we raced to buy a tshirt and an Anoop photo (they were out of Anoop so she got Kris).

We didn't even go to the same table and all three girls ended up choosing the same tshirt!

Allison was one of my fave performances. She came out rockin' to So What.

Danny showed us his dance moves and touched our hearts talking about this past year and how he has learned not to be defined by a tragedy.

Adam Lambert knows how to PERFORM! He rocked it out. There was ALOT of pelvis action though...

Adam and Allison performed Slow Ride.

Kris came out performing Heartless. He did not sing No Boundaries. Something tells me Kara D. won't be writing the debut single for next season's winner.

It was coming to an end...

It was such a fun show. I was sweaty...tired...my throat hurt...my hearing was "off"...

These 3 LOVED it...and that is what it is all about...we pulled out of the parking garage to begin our 2.5 hour drive home...windows and sunroof open...jammin' out to Slow Ride.
Pittsburgh is a crazy city to get out of...thank you God for GPS!
Happy Weekend!

How fun, looks like you had a blast!!! I would have loved to see Adam perform, I laughed when you mentioned pelvic action. Lol. All of their outfits look great and I love Danny. I went to the tour a few years back and really enjoyed it. Love that you got the girls shirts, how awesome!

You are seriously the coolest Mom! It looks like the best time! Woot! I loved the girls T-shirts. Not being into AI - I don't know much about the singer this season. I may have to get into it next time (without Paula ;-D). You sure know how to have a great vacation!!
