American Idol season 11 tour

Posted on

What will the Top 11 from American Idol‘s recent 10th season be performing during their live tour this summer? Well, the official set list is under wraps, but we can tell you what they were practicing — spirited renditions of Cee Lo Green’s “Forget You” and Montgomery Gentry’s “Gone,” led by winner Scotty McCreery — when EW stopped by their rehearsals for the American Idols LIVE! tour, which launches in Salt Lake City on Wednesday, July 6. We can also tell you that the 11 young things are ready to rock. “There’s gonna be beards, there’s going to be low voices, there’s gonna be dancing,” Casey Abrams teases in our video interviews with the contestants below. In fact, we got all 11 Idols to sit down with us quickly and weigh in on the tour, as well as share some of their favorite moments from the past season and what else they’re working on now.

Watch the Idols rehearse for the tour — and talk about it — here:
