In tradition of the semi-final round in "American Idol", the top three finalists go home to their respective hometown to garner supports from the people there. On Friday, May 8 Adam Lambert who resides in Los Angeles goes back to San Diego, Danny Gokey visits Milwaukee while Kris Allen returns to Conway, Arkansas.
The camera will follow them as they campaign for votes and some of their personal lives are exposed. The hometowns, meanwhile, have prepared a set of celebration that include parades, concerts and public appearances. These footage will be played during the Tuesday live cast of "American Idol".
Adam will do a number of TV, radio and printed media interviews in addition to visiting AT&T store which will give him a customized phone. His parade will be kicked off outside his high school, Mount Carmel High, where he will also greet the students of drama and choir. And then after that, more stops at his two other schools, before going to San Diego Sea World. He will perform two songs at Sun Devil stadium and greet Marines at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.
Danny, being a devoted Christian, will sing in his church, Faith Builders International Ministries and follows it with a visit to some of Milwaukee's attractions such as the bronze statue of Fonz, Harley-Davidson Museum, and Milwaukee Art Museum and Discovery World.
