American Idol co-creator Simon Fuller received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday. Attending the ceremony outside the W Hotel were the American Idol Season 10 Top 13; former Idol winners Carrie Underwood, David Cook and Kris Allen; Idol host Ryan Seacrest, Idol judges Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez; Lopez's husband Marc Anthony; So You Think You Can Dance judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy; and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham.
Before the ceremony started, the current season's Top 13 came out to take photos and sign autographs with the fans. Carrie, David and Kris also did this afterwards. Carrie is a huge superstar but is still very down-to-earth, from what I saw. David and Kris are as well. They are so very comfortable greeting the fans. Ryan Seacrest is also very nice. He came over to the crowd to say hello, and he asked me what my name was and then repeated it when he said it was nice to meet me. He's so Hollywood, but he's also still a polite Southern boy at the core.
Here's a slideshow of photos I took at the event, as well as a link to the photo album:
Additionally, here are two more photos I took via cellphone:
