Just a day after announcing the top 20 contestants on American Idol, Ryan Seacrest kicked off the Idol Across America tour today at New York's News Corp Plaza.
What is this tour we speak of??
Idol Across America is the AI iconic mic's opportunity to travel to 13 cities and landmarks like Fenway Park and the Grand Canyon so fans can watch and interact with the mic as it makes its way to Hollywood to pick the next American Idol!
The reality competition's host explained:
“It’s going to be cool because as the microphone comes through each city, it will be run by fans of the show, local heroes, inspirational figures, celebrities and then it will end up on our stage in Hollywood."
Damn! That is going to be one well-traveled, popular mic! Ha!
