I know you were being facetious & I also know why...but let me say this...Originally Posted by Broadway;3045379;
I have just returend from CMA Music Fest where I saw Carrie, Bo, Kellie Pickler, Bucky, Phill Stacey, & Josh Gracin perform & Diana DeGarmo was MC of the very last 2 hr. set on the Riverfront stages & each & every one of those folks when they were introduced had some reference to their time on AI included in the introduction. None of them seemed to have an issue with it or shrink away from it. I don't understand why fans of one particular "Idol runner up" seem to always be on the outs with this.
