Guests to last night’s finale of “The American Idol Experience” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios had a nice surprise, as “American Idol” Season 8 Top 5 Finalist Matt Giraud stopped in to check out the attraction. The Kalamazoo, Mich., native is on vacation here this week.
Before he visited the attraction, he had a chance to take this picture with Daisy Duck. Daisy, who is accustomed to Donald’s famous sailor hat, seemed to also like Matt’s signature fedora.
Inside “The American Idol Experience” Matt told Guests he has been busy touring and writing. Since “American Idol,” he has recorded with the likes of Jim Brickman and scored a #1 hit on the jazz charts with “You Don’t Know Me,” a duet with vocalist Anna Wilson.
Backstage, Matt signed autographs for the Finale contestants and wished them luck before they hit the stage for their big moments.
