Yes, the American Idols Live tour rolled through Albany on Wednesday, August 19, and no, Nippertown.com didn’t go to the show.

But that didn’t stop the little girls outside the arena from clamoring for a peek at any of this year’s Top 10 – and hopefully snagging an autograph or even – OMG! – a kiss on the cheek.

Here's Gina from Montreal, and she's feeling pretty lucky.

But perhaps all is not unicorns and teddybears on the Idol tour. What's that we spotted in the tour bus window?

Hmmm... That's what we thought it was. Perhaps Mr. Lambert is getting ready to team up with KISS (Knights in Satan's Service) fulltime?
