The Idols Live Tour, featuring the top 11 contestants from "American Idol" Season 10, kicks off this week at the Maverik Center in West Valley City, Utah, and over the past few weeks the Idols have been hard at work in a super-secret Los Angeles bunker rehearsing for the big event. Among them are Lauren Alaina, "American Idol" runner-up and America's sweetheart.
"Idol" viewers has almost literally seen Lauren grow up before their eyes, and she's transformed from a plucky little girl in tie-dye to a glamourpuss in sleek black Lycra and a sleek blonde blowout. In our pre-tour interview below, Lauren discusses her fabulous makeover (seriously, the girl's looking good), as well as the fashions she'll be rocking on the tour. And of course, she talks a bit about her future: While she'll be doing an "out of her element" pop song on the tour (it's a mystery duet!), after the tour, her debut album will be 100 percent COUNTRY, news that will surely please her core fanbase.
Check out Lauren's cute interview below, and look for Casey Abrams, James Durbin, Pia Toscano, and Stefano Langone in the background:
Coming up next, and last but not least...winner Scotty McCreery!
