American Idol has wrapped up season ten on Channel 10 in Tempe, but this only means the top eleven are hard at work in preparing for the American Idols Live Tour, which kicks off on July 6. On Friday, MJ’s Big Blog shared this performance by the top eleven from the recent tour press day. The top eleven, including American Idol winner, Scotty McCreery, performed the Cee Lo Green hit, Forget You, for the press during the day. Check out the performance here.
Cee Lo Green is currently one of the mentors on American Idol’s most recent competitor, The Voice. That music reality competition is headed towards its finale this week. The series has only four singers remaining in the competition. The mentors on The Voice have made their comparisons to American Idol, and Randy Jackson even once commented that The Voice was gimmicky. This only forced Adam Levine to claim that The Voice was better. In the fall, X Factor will join the ranks of music competition series, and The Voice is already casting for season two of its series, which will premiere following the Super Bowl in 2012.
Along with the tour preparations, several of the top eleven are preparing for their debut albums. Scotty and Lauren Alaina landed management deals only this week. Pia Toscano has been working on her album for months now as well.
Fans of American Idol are waiting for the tour to kick off next week. Here are some of the recent comments made on Twitter:
