When OTRC.com caught up with the top 11 finalists of "American Idol" season 12 earlier this month, they were gearing up for a 30-show concert tour, which kicked off on July 19 in Kent, Washington.
The finalists, which includes winner Candice Glover, will make stops in cities like Los Angeles, Phoenix, Houston, New Orleans, Miami and Nashville throughout the summer.
"I'm so excited, you know, to go out and just and see everybody that's had my back and who has been voting for me," finalist Amber Holcomb told OTRC.com. "I'm ready to perform with no judges and no like pressure. I'm just ready to go."
"It feels amazing. You know, just like you said, everybody's voting -- everybody was voting for us, and we're gonna get a chance to see all those kids and even adults that voted for us and wanted us to do a good job and put on a great tour for them," Glover said. "'American Idol' was a really great show, but this, the 'American Idol' tour, we're all stepping it up a notch, and its gonna be epic, like I promise."
"I feel like everybody should get a chance to come out and see it because it's gonna be great," she added.
