The three play live for audiences at home…
MTV / 11 May, 2009
The finalists in American Idol 2009 have returned to their home towns to meet fans and sing live.
Adam Lambert, Kris Allen and Danny Gokey will compete to win the talent show as it reaches its climax on May 20. And to drum up support they’ve each hit different parts of the US with cameras in tow.
Danny Gokey was in Milwaukee on Friday where he performed at the gospel church where he is musical director. Between singing gospel he talked about the funeral of his wife last year which also took place at the church.
He said: "I couldn't even cry. ... I was so shocked… Me and my family, we didn't know how to say goodbye... It was the most tragic event I ever had to face in my life."
On the same day Adam Lambert was at his old high school in San Diego to sing two songs to adoring fans. He ran through his versions of Michael Jackson’s Black Or White and Tears For Fears’ hit Mad World.
Kris Allen played three free gigs near his hometown of Conway, Ark.- singing The Beatles classic Come Together and Aint No Sunshine.
At the biggest gig Allen played to 3,000 people at the Little Rock outdoor amphitheatre.
