The Idols Live Tour, featuring the top 11 contestants from "American Idol" Season 10, kicks off July 6 at the Maverik Center in West Valley City, Utah, and the Idols have been hard at work in a super-secret Los Angeles bunker getting ready for the big tour.
Reality Rocks recently gained entry to that super-secret bunker, where I got to interview all 11 Idols about their tour plans and beyond, and among them was seventh-place contestant Stefano Langone. Stefano got a lot of flak during his "Idol" run--you had to feel for the guy on that dreadful night when he and Pia Toscano were in the bottom two--but as he asserts in my interview, he was one of the hardest-working contestants on the show. And since his elimination he's wisely stayed in Los Angeles, networking and laying the groundwork for his post-"Idol" career.
Hopefully the tour will also showcase a side of him (a piano-playing side, specifically) that we didn't get to see on TV. Check out what Stefano had to say about his "Idol" run and future plans below:
