Last Friday, August 13, the Season 9 "American Idol" cast headed back to Los Angeles, the city where all their through-to-Hollywood dreams came true, to play one of their biggest dates on the Idols Live Tour, at the massive Staples Center (right across the street from the Nokia Theater, where the finale took place not so long ago). There, before the big show, I had the chance to catch up with them to discuss their on-the-road adventures and post-tour recording plans.
Unfortunately, my girl Siobhan Magnus was squired away to a preshow meet-and-greet with fans before I had a chance to interview her, but I did get to dish with Tim Urban (about his new hair highlights, "awesome" fanbase, and upcoming album, ), Katie Stevens (about getting props from Christina Aguilera and making "Kelly Clarkson meets Pixie Lott" pop music), Andrew Garcia (about playing a huge concert in his hometown), and Didi Benami (about battling to cover an obscure Kyler England song on tour and casting "rays of sunshine" on lesser-known music).
