It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for: the season finale of American Idol!After four months and nearly 90 million votes, Season 11 has its Top 2 finalists: Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips. Needless to say, your Idol viewing party guests will be VERY excited, so you’ll have to go all-out to make watching the show at your place as thrilling as being there in person at theNokia Theater L.A. LIVE.
Party Tip Of The Week
First, ask your guests to disclose in advance which “team” they’re on: Team Phillip or Team Jessica. Then you can create Team Jessica and Team Phillip stickers – or even make T-shirts if you’re feeling ambitious! Print out DIYscorecards for your guests on which they can keep track of the evening’s performances, making notes on which contestant “won” each round (don’t forget to provide pencils). Finally, create iTunes playlists for your friends, including the best Jessica and Phillip songs from the season. They’ll make great party favors, no matter who wins!
Celebrate the finale of Season 11 with this week’s scrumptious Kraft recipes. They include Easy Mac & Cheese with Bacon and Peas, Homemade Tilapia Tacos, and Cheesy Monkey Bread.
