When the Idols Live tour kicked off July 6, Season 10 champ Scotty McCreery and some of his fellow contestants found the perfect way to chill before performing for the crowd in Salt Lake City.
“The very first night we pranked Jacob Lusk. We poured a bucket of ice on him in the shower,” McCreery said. “It just got us laughing so hard.”
For the country crooner from Garner, N.C., the whole Idols Live experience has been “pretty crazy.” “Coming off of the show, I don’t think any of us knew what to expect, but it’s definitely a lot more fun,” he said. “… Now you’re just up on stage having fun and you’re just going out there to entertain, and that’s what we want to do.”
It seems to be working. Idols Live ticket sales have averaged 97 percent this year, according to Billboard’s Boxscore chart. Audiences seem to be responding to this year’s Top 11, and headliner McCreery, in particular, whose mix of songs includes his debut, “I Love You This Big.” He also has performed “When You Say Nothing at All” with runner-up Lauren Alaina, a frequent duet partner on American Idol. But, McCreery says, the two aren’t making music together offstage. “We’re just good friends,” he said.
