Whoopi! (And) Two Idols In Town

What are the odds of this happening again? Two "American Idol" contestants from last season will be here the same day, along with Oscar-winning actress/radio host Whoopi Goldberg.
Elliott Yamin, third last season, will be in town Thursday and Friday. Ace Young, who finished seventh of the 12, will be here Friday.

Yamin will sing "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" during the 7th inning stretch of the Reds-Astros game at 7:10 p.m. Thursday at Great American Ball Park. He'll also guest on Whoopi Goldberg's national "Wake Up With Whoopi" radio show, when she broadcasts from the Belle of Cincinnati 5-9 a.m. Friday from Newport. The show airs here on Clear Channel's WVMX-FM (MIX94.1).

Standyby tickets for Goldberg's show may be printed from the station's Web site for admission on a first-come, first-served basis if any of the station’s 150 ticket winners do not show when doors open at 4:45 a.m., says Jessica Martini, MIX94.1 marketing director. (You also might be on the lookout for Whoopi's bus around town. She doesn't like to fly, so she has a big John Madden-like bus. She's doing her show Thursday in Chicago, then coming by bus to Cincinnati after that. )

Young, 26, will pose for photos and sign autographs 3-5 p.m. Friday at the Deerfield Township biggs, 9600 Mason Montgomery Road. He's on a seven-city tour promoting five new Edy’s Slow Churned American Idol flavors.

Isn't that the perfect example of the difference between finishing 3rd and 7th in "American Idol?"
