Hi, everyone, and greetings from Orlando! Our crowds were so cheerful and enthusiastic today as we kicked off our Summer in the City tour in the Sunshine State with a rousing live performance from former "American Idol" runner-up Katherine McPhee. Kat looked great and gave us all a case of "McPheever," dancing and singing her way across our stage. Check out our interview, where she told me that the past year in her life -- going from "Idol" finalist to solo recording star -- has been a dream come true. And next Friday, look for me in Raleigh, N.C., where I'll be on the next leg of our tour!
