Most of you know the Famous Mary C., who is a frequent poster and good friend to us all. For those of you who are new to our site, Mary C. and her sister Sue won tickets to the American Idol finale at the Nokia. Not only that, but during the early morning hours following the finale, Mary and Sue were lucky enough to hang out with Adam and take quite a few photos. I was finally able to meet Mary at the Grand Rapids concert. I stood next to her at the barricades after the concert, kinowing if anyone would get an autograph, she would. My instincts were spot on! Mary and I and all the Adam fans in our group at the barricades got autographs, photos, and even some personal interaction with Adam.
I posted Mary’s finale story and a few of the photos she sent back then in this article.
When I met Mary in Grand Rapids, she had all her finale photos with her, and I asked her to email them to me so all the Glambs could see them. Mary sent the photos to me this past week, so here they are. You can see that Mary and Sue not only saw Adam, but many celebrities and past Idols, including Justin (check out his nails!), Chris Daughtry, Bo Bice, Heather Locklear, Santana, and Mary even had her photo taken with Adam’s father, Eber.
It’s an interesting look back. The morning press session following the finale, as you can see in the photos, was pretty relaxed and devoid of any large crowd. Did any of us know back then what truly was coming? Did Adam know? I doubt it. From what Adam said in his end-of-tour interview, he still doesn’t really grasp why we all go crazy for him. Well, we know, and I’m afraid those days of low-key press events are all in the past. Some people might lament the loss of those quiet days, but it is what it is. Adam is a world-wide star, and we can’t help expressing our love for him in the only ways we know how.
For those of you who don’t know Mary and Sue, Mary is the one in the photos with Eber and Heather, and Sue is the blonde with Adam. Thanks again, Mary, for sharing your photos and your experiences with us!
