The hometown tours for the American Idol Top 3 were a big hit as Scotty, Lauren, and Haley each headed back home for a hero’s welcome and treated their fans to a few great performances. We’ll see lots more of this on Wednesday’s performance show, but here’s some local coverage for each of the singers.
Scotty’s trip took him home to Garner, NC were it looks like he was ready to impress the crowds with his trademarked smile. NewsObserver has a lengthy rundown on all of Scotty’s events. Scotty even had the chance to sing alongside Josh Turner which was a bit of a surprise for all, especially Scotty. It’s hilarious.
Lauren headed back to Chattanooga, TN and went everywhere from throwing out the first pitch at a ballgame to delivering a few songs at a nearby park. Rome News Tribune has a few video clips if you want to hear her sing to her fans.
Haley looked mighty comfortable in her hometown of Chicago, IL on Saturday when she went back to her old job, high school, and even did a few songs for her Chicago fans as well. Daily Herald has a full set of pics from the day’s events.
Did anyone out there make it to these events? If you could have picked one to visit, which singer would you have wanted to see perform this weekend?
