Unless you've been living under a rock (maybe the one Lady Gaga climbed during last night's "Edge Of Glory" performance?), then you know by now that the Season 10 "American Idol" finale
aired last night. Scotty McCreery won
, but I was thrilled to get to chat with some of this season's other standout contestants, as well as some "Idol" alums and...drumroll, please
...James Durbin's finale night duet partner, Rob Halford of Judas Priest, when I worked the preshow red carpet last night.
Check out my red carpet interviews with this season's Pia Toscano, James Durbin, Casey Abrams, Paul McDonald, Ashthon Jones, and Thia Megia, along with former Idols Sanjaya Malakar (expressing his love to a blushing Thia), Tim Urban, Jason Castro, Blake Lewis, and Michael Sarver.
And make sure to wait for the fabulously leather-sheathed, rivet-studded Rob Halford, who had plenty of nice things to say about James.
