The Richmond Coliseum is the place to be on 20th August when over 13,500 fans embrace the heroes they worshipped on American Idol season 10. The singing talents of Scotty McCreery & other contestants have made them household names across America. In the upcoming American Idols Live Tour, America will unite to laud the artists as they pay homage to their supportive fans.
Idol Season 10 began in a flurry of personnel changes. Randy Jackson (the only remaining original judge) was joined by Aerosmith front-man Steven Tyler and singer-actress Jennifer Lopez, & their assured critique dispelled apprehensions. If anything, the competition grew even feistier with bringing down audition age to 15. 17 year-old Scotty McCreery & 16-year old Lauren Alaina heavily profited, dominating the field to set up a finale oozing with teen oomph. Country enthusiast McCreery eventually emerged as victor.

American Idol saw various format changes this year. Singer-actress Jennifer Lopez & Aerosmith lead-man Steven Tyler joined Randy Jackson in the judges’ hot seats in a reversion to the 3-judge format. The audition age was also chopped down to 15. That paid dividends when 16-year old Lauren Alaina & 17-year old Scotty McCreery breezed through the competition to set up a rousing finale. After appearances by Elton John, Carole King & Motown, McCreery was crowned the youngest male winner in LA’s Nokia Theater.
