  1. Aaah the company seems much nicer in here. Good for them and I hope they have fun. Presenting an award is probably a lot less nerve racking than singing on AI.

  2. I never watch any of the awards shows. Thanks for the info though. I may record it and look back at the performances later on when I am bored and have nothing else to do which is rare.

  3. i thought jessica sanchez and colton will be presenting? i guess that’s how busy jessica is so she cant make it for the awards.WOW…jessica truly is the WORLD IDOL.

  4. i think skylar is adorable and hope she goes far in her career.  she’s a bundle of personality with a powerful voice.

  5. This just adds to my belief that Nashville is the place to be for young artists.  Colton may not be a country singer, but he is from Tennessee and there’s lots of crossover going on these days.  Hope they all do well.

  6. I am so thrilled for all the Idol Alumnis.  Thanks Branden for the update, I will definitely be watching. 

  7. I think it is so cool the Coulter Dixon and Skylar are presenting at the CMT AWARDS tonight.
