Elli and I before the concert
Michael Johns, who was definitely one of my favorites. He was a crowd favorite, too. He sang his "We Will Rock You/We are the Champions" medley and "Dream On", which was almost better than his peformance on the show.
Syesha Mercado. She was phenomenal, singing "Listen" from the movie "Dream Girls". She was almost better than Beyonce. This girl really grew on me during the season and I loved her performance at the concert.
Possibly my favorite song of the night. He was so amazing. I still can't believe that he's 17. The crowd was so loud I only heard him singing about half the time he was up on stage. It was crazy. I'm actually kind of glad he didn't win because now he can do whatever he wants with no pressure. That said.......
I thought I liked David Cook before the concert but I was still blown away by him. He was crazy!! And he seems to have maintained a pretty level head about his success...so far
The Finale. If you look very closely, you can see all ten of the top ten. This concert was so much fun. Thanks for the tickets, Ronell, and thanks for going with me, Elli.
