My favorite part of American Idol



As I've said before, I don't understand why FOX doesn't incorporate more of a Real World/Survivor behind-the-scenes element to the show.

I love reading about and seeing the real friendships that develop on the show, sometimes between the most unlikely of contestants.

Unfortunately, the only time you really get a glimpse of that on the current show is when someone gets cut, and their friends comfort them.

Anyway, because it's Friday, check out these behind-the-scenes photos from the party FOX threw for the top 12 finalists.

There are some funny photos of David Archuleta, Jason Castro, Ramiele Malubay in there--and of Danny Noriega, Kady Malloy.

And, for you crazy Constantine Maroulis fans, he shows up, along with Chris Sligh, Justin Guarini, Gina Glockson and some other old-timers.

Yep, I'm one of those crazy Constantine Maroulis fans. It's been three years since he was on the show and he's still the one!! There will never be another Season 4 and there will never be another Constantine.

Photo #35 is NOT Chris Sligh. That's Josh Gad.

Chris Sligh is currently in Florida, on a radio and TV tour promoting his new single, "Empty Me" and debut CD "Running Back To You", (due out May 6th).
Visit his Myspace Music site, or chrissligh.com to see what Chris really looks like!

I just flew across the country to catch a couple of Constantine's shows on the east coast. Am I crazy? Maybe, but this guy is one talented entertainer- from his outstanding voice to stand-up comedian and all around nice guy, he is one of the best AI has ever brought to us- so bring him on!
And thanks for the photos!

Hey, there's only a FEW of those "crazy" Constantine fans left. And anyone who'd fly anywhere to waste $15 to hear him mangle other people's music needs to have their ears checked, followed by their sanity. He can't even be bothered to learn the lyrics, he needs the lyrics on stage with him. In fact, he screws up the lyrics to his own stuff. Thank God they'll never be another Constantine. One is more than most people could ever stomach.

Anyone that flies across the country to see Craptestine in everything from dive bars to bingo halls has to be nuttier than a squirrel's dung. The "album" was horrible, not worth 15 cents, much less 15 dollars. His "humor" is everything from cliched to insulting, and the acting skill is on the high school production level at best. Cap that off with him being so "charming," he told a reporter for one of the major papers in LA that they "can't write!"

Yes, a very classy person. Please pass the barf bag.

I think a "Survivor" take on viewing the American Idol castoffs would be very entertaining! Great idea.

It's interesting to see that people just can't seem to stop talking about Constantine. The guy definitely makes an impact. I always enjoyed his performances very much.

Another crazy Constantine fan checking in. I also am just back from flying to NYC to see Constantine's concerts. I loved every minute of it and would gladly hop in that plane for another of his concerts. He puts on a fantastic, entertaining concert and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Cheesestantine? He's so what, 3 years ago? His big debut CD is craptacular. He can't give them away! Wow his "shows"? Not exactly selling out arenas or opening for Bon Jovi (oh wait, that's Chris Daughtry, an ACTUAL rocker from season 5)-more like teeny clubs. And it's the SAME crazies at every show. If I was him and saw those same, old (literally) faces in the crowd every night, I'd be looking for a butter knife to slit my wrists. I guess that's why he drinks so much and smokes pot, it makes him forget his demographics.

These anonymous posters seem to know everything about Constantine.It can only be assumed that it's the same group of ex groupies who are still obsessed with him and his fans. No one else would care.

Once again you "crazy" fans assume everyone that doesn't think he's the greatest singer/actor (I use those terms very loosely when referring to him) ever, must be one of the "pinks". What an insult. And I see YOU are just "anonymous" yourself, so hello? Pot kettle black? Whatever.

Who are we talking about? Isn't this that creepy greasyball from like 4 years ago? You mean he's still alive?

Anonymous said...

He is alive, why do you bother to read and post about him.

You are obsessed miss anonymous. so is the other anonymous who knows who the pinks are. You all know too much and follow very closely and responding in this blog proves it.

You can call me crazy fan.

AngieFishCrotch is still obsessing about him and the fandom all these years later..talk about the ultimate crazy fan, especially when she won't even admit it. And obsessing over someone's fans...uh, STALKER much? Anyone who does stuff like fixate over some has been and the few fans he has left is seriously mentally ill--LITERALLY.

I wonder if anyone commenting here did NOT get the link from Greek Speak. Maybe the first one, who was talking about Chris Sligh.

I'm not following him at all, unlike you bunch of losers who max out your credit cards flying all over the country to see your "boyfriend" "perform". You are also secretly thinking he loves seeing your ugly old faces showing up. Actually he has to get high/drunk just to stomach the sight of all of you. Enjoy those concerts!

Apparently being crazy is a prequisite to be a fan of his. There's no other explanation for what they see/hear in him.

He sings out of tune and forgets lyrics. He actually laid down on stage at one concert ! (What was that all about?) And ne's not nearly as entertaining as his psychotic housewife fans.
