After many failed attempts and missed opportunities, it seems like the stars have finally aligned for me to go see American Idol. This year's judges were Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr.
The show films at CBS Studios
7800 Beverly Boulevard, Los Angeles, California
You do have to get tickets in advanced in order to go see the show, but if you are lucky enough to get them, it is quiet an experience.
My only complaint is that every time I go see a live taping of a show, the wait times are outrageous! There always seems to be about a 3 to 4 hour wait before even getting into the studio. The good thing about American Idol is that it films live for the east coast, so once the show started it was non stop for an hour. It was rather interesting seeing how everything plays out behind the scenes.
Keep in mind that if you are going to go to the American Idol taping, you are recommended to park inside the structure of The Grove, which can be a little pricey.
Overall it was a blast being able to see Jennifer Lopez (wifey), in person, and to see how short Ryan Seacrest really is. If someone has a day to spare and has a chance to go, I highly recommend it.
