It has been almost a week since my last post. I felt like it was important to leave Mikalah's interview up as the Top Story for longer than usual. As always, your response has been tremendous, both in the comments to her and in the private emails and messages you have sent me. All the kind comments were forwarded to her. And let me just say one more time, Mikalah, you touch my heart, and you've got a friend for life in me.

Those of you who are checking in to see my recap of the Nashville American Idol concert are going to be a little disappointed. I was unable to make it to the show, due to financial constraints related to my acceptance of a new job. So basically it was either the concert or eating/shelter/clothing. Normally, I'd pick A.I., but since my television won't run off of coconut oil, I figured I'd pay the bills instead.

HOWEVER, I'd like anyone out there who may be reading and who went to the Nashville show (or any other show) to send me your recap and review, and of those I receive, the best of the best will be posted here as a guest blogger spot. Here's Zach's photos from the show, courtesy of Zach and MJ's Big American Idol Blog. (MJ is my American Idol.)

Also, I'm putting out an all-call to you American Idol auditioners out there. Send me your experiences!!!

And those of you who plan to audition in Memphis, I would like to tag along with one of you. Whether you're really good or just going on TV to get attention, let me know. I want to be there with you through the process, and if I go with you, you'll get coverage on this blog.

Contact for either of these.

Well done on the new job, JD.

I hope the Execs behind Idol read this, and get smart and buy you some plane and show tickets for the next Idol tour stop!

I caught the show in tampa (9th row seats, mind you, and don't forget that I did invite you to go with me...

It was a really fun concert. Ace's bit was entertaining, Elliot was awesome, and Mandissa - she ROCKED! There was also a quartet of Chris, Ace, Elliot and Bucky which was really, really good. Kat was restricted to only two songs by her doctor, and Kelli didn't sing due to doctor's orders. She did make an appearance before intermission just to say hi to the audience.

Overall, it was a really fun time. Sorry you didn't get to come with me, JD!

I won't be auditioning for American Idol...

I single handedly killed Paula Abdul's singing career. That and cost Ross Perot the Presidency.
