"American Idols" Show Class and Gratitude

On Friday July 9, I went to see the 2010 Top Ten "American Idol" contestants perform on "Good Morning America" at Central Park's Summerstage. While the performances were great, I was more impressed by the performers themselves who were all very friendly in their interactions with the fans. The two I would single out especially are Crystal Bowersox and Didi Benami. Because I have 2 friends who work for GMA, I was lucky enough to get backstage and meet a few of the singers. It also allowed me to observe what people are like once the cameras stop rolling. A young girl accompanied by her grandfather was in a scaffolded area under the stage hoping to talk to and get autographs from Crystal & Didi. Both Crystal and Didi literally had to get on their hands and knees to interact with this young fan and sign her pictures. They did it happily and with genuine appreciation. It was a very classy thing to do and a sign they truly appreciate the opportunity they've been given and the people who support them.

Tony,

Thank you for sharing this! An inside view is always a revelation, though I always thought these two contestants, actually, most of those who make it to the top 25 and always the top 10, appear authentically grateful and kind. Perhaps they have learned even more the value of humility (I think most come with a sense of humility; but I cannot imagine how much of their old selves get left behind going through the Idol process.)

That girl will never forget this moment, and me thinks, neither will you.

Blessings!
