We are happy to welcome guest celebrity blogger Ace Young, the former "American Idol" finalist who made his Broadway debut in the recent revival of Grease. The Grammy-nominated artist, who is currently back on Broadway in the Tony-winning revival of Hair, will blog for Playbill.com all week; his final entry follows:
Every basketball team in the NBA has its star player...I remember as a kid watching Michael Jordan play for the Chicago Bulls, and I always knew that I was going to see a good game. The only thing I didn't understand is how they could ever lose a game...but even in the best season teams still lose a lot of games.
Every other show has its star player... but they won't all win you over. Come see the team with Billups, LeBron, Kobe, Shaq, and Anthony...
It's been a real pleasure being able to not only get to know, but get to work with my fellow "American Idol" alum Diana DeGarmo. After learning the show with her, I can't imagine doing it with anyone else. And, it's an amazing thing to be part of the first show to have two "American Idols" on a Broadway stage. So if you're a fan of Diana's or a fan of mine, or just a fan of the show, we hope to see you at Hair.
I want to thank Playbill.com for asking me to blog this week...I hope to do it again soon. I have been up to some things that I'm not allowed to talk about until next week... so you can stay posted with me www.twitter.com/IAMACEYOUNG, Facebook "Ace Young," www.acemusic.com.
Thanks again... See you on 45th Street!
New York baby! I'm there now.
