It’s hard to say anything too harsh about an American Idol finalist immediately after experiencing his/her “Hometown Visit” package.
Misty-eyed mamas. Weeping dads. The contestants themselves embracing Fox affiliate meteorologists, kissing schoolkids and choking back their emotions when they realize they’re officially stars (or something pretty damn close).
