I Shot an American Idol…Sort of.

American Idol came to Omaha looking for talent. If anyone was watching last night: Chris Bernheisel was the first contestant and took up at least 5 min. of the show. One of his idols is Carrie Underwood. Too bad he was so nervous that his singing was akin to the sounds a freshly branded cow. I’ve heard him sing before and he did much better in a room full of strangers than he did in front of the dynamic dual. (Paula hadn’t arrived yet.)

However, he did pull it out to get a gig as Fox 42’s American Idol Red Carpet Reporter. Appointed so by none other than Simon Cowell himself. Below is a cast picture I shot of him when he was with the Fremont Community Players. One of my several brushes with fame.
