The Top 10 contestants of "American Idol" officially kicked off their summer tour in Portland on Sunday, July 5. And before they took the stage to perform, each of them gave interviews of what has happened between the end of the season and the tour.

The Idols were doing it in pairs, winner Kris Allen sat with Anoop Desai, runner-up Adam Lambert with Lil Rounds, second runner-up Danny Gokey with Michael Sarver, Allison Iraheta with Scott MacIntyre and Megan Joy with Matt Giraud. The Anoop-Kris pair in particular was able to generate laughter when Anoop said that he has been registering to online fansites of Kris'.

This troupe will be touring across U.S. up to September 15 at Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester. Matt explained how the tour will go, saying "The order of performances goes in the order of elimination. So, since I was the first of the top 10 to be eliminated, I'm opening the show. And the higher you got in the competition, the more songs you get to do in your own set."

Hours after completing the show in Portland, Kris tweeted "first show was awesome! thank you portland". Adam wrote, "Our first show was so much fun!! Portland's audience was amaaaazing!" Allison also shared, "thank you portland for being awesome!! you made our first show sooo SO SO SO SO SO MUCH FUN!!!!! xD"

You have to love all the haters. Adam is AMAZING! He sings circles around the others and idiots like Sissi and Manol are jealous losers.

Why is Kris wearing that hat? He looks much better without it.

Adam Lambert is FAT. Go on diet regime, man (well, "man" not much, actually). Some of these contestants have a nice voice, gotta say this (the fat one with the make up more than the others, I will admit that) but seriously this is not serious music at all. I agree with the Karaoke remark. None of them without Idol's promotion would be anywhere. Their voices or "skills" weren't just enough in themselves. And this still true.

Please... American Idol is crap and so are all these fake people. It's just a well served machine ready to fit senseless minds. State of music in USA is really bad if these are considered "artists" theya re not. Karaoke getting hyped, that's it.

I am a Kris Allen fan, but I love all of them. They are all so unique in their own way. Variety is the spice of life and this group has it in droves.

Adam is a rock God! And how could you say he's fat? I was there very close to the stage and he looked sexier than ever. Please leave your rude comments to yourself Sissi. I bet you're fat.
