These photos of the American Idol 10 finalists are from the post-show press area after both finale nights. All of the finalists came out to talk to press and meet the fans. Except for Haley Reinhart on Tuesday. I suspect she may have been rehearsing. But the others all made their way out there. Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina were shuttled in and out of there very quickly on Tuesday and didn't have any time to talk to fans, but the others were very gracious with their time and posed for photos, signed whatever was handed to them (including a Starbucks cup and a notepad that looked like it came from a random real estate agent).
Everyone was super nice (shoutout to Karen Rodriguez for being extra sweet and Jacob Lusk for being extra friendly) and attentive even when it turned into a chorus of screaming banshees.
