Matt was amazing at the fences in the afternoon. He spent a lot of time with our group. He gave extra attention to Cecilie and seemed very touched that she flew in so far to see him. I'll let Cecilie tell you the details.

As you can see by the video I just posted we chanted signmattgiraud when he came out! This too was great fun!

A few highlights to come...

WE GOT BACKSTAGE PASSES!

Met the lovely Bellarose...who is amazing and very sweet!

My concert recap and after concert recap.

Sorry guys all this will have to wait until tomorrow as I am exhausted!

I don't know how I will ever catch up!

Thanks everyone for keeping the site updated!

Found this on MJ's...


Quote :
mindchngerIcon_lock Matt and the crowd are pumped. Chants of signmattgiraud less than 5 seconds ago from TwitterFon

I couldn't hear this where I was sitting but I hope this happened. We worked our butts of telling people. I did hear the audience chanting Matt matt matt before he came on though.

It was at this point that the crowd started to go absolutely crazy. The hometown boy was up next, and boy was West Michigan proud and supportive of him! Matt Giraud (#5) started out his set by beat-boxing from off-stage, then charged onto it with an amazing version of "Hard To Handle". A piano rose out of the floor, and man, he sure can play! The screams were deafening during his set. He was very emotional for his next number, "Georgia On My Mind" and his "You Found Me" has definitely improved from when he performed it on the show. I definitely would see him again, but he was one of my favorites from the season, so I would have anyway, I'm sure. Someone needs to sign him fast!

Before the 20 minute intermission, the Idols that had already performed came back to do a medley. Megan and Lil started out with "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You". Um, yeah, not so great. Their voices didn't match and Megan struggled with singing melody to Lil's alto harmony. Scott and Matt rose out of the floor again with a dueling pianos version of "Tell Her About It". It's a shame this was cut from the finale. It was really amazing. Michael then sang "Suspicious Minds"...eh...yeah....then Anoop came out and they all did "Beggin" with Motown choreography which was pretty sharp. I was really impressed with Scott, and Matt had a little swagger to his.

From MJ's...



Quote :
Matt was next and I was so happy to meet him, because even though we had AP passes I was pretty sure he would have a separate one. I went to Western Michigan University, so I lived in Kalamazoo for four years. Matt’s bar, Monaco Bay, is my absolute favorite and I remember him from those days. He is an incredible artist and sweet guy. He seemed to recognize us, which we don’t know if that is possible. It could be from one too many adult beverages at Monaco…who knows? Anyways, he was really nice. Sam had him say hello to her friend Erin on the phone, he signed our stuff and because we were busy talking about how awesome Monaco Bay is, we forgot to ask for a picture. After he signed for the people next to us he came back! He was like “I’m coming back… I don’t usually come back, but it’s because I love you guys”.


The crowd was going crazy for Matt. I am SO glad I was able to go to his hometown show. I love this guy; I think he is SO talented and creative. I would buy his album in a heartbeat. His set was amazing, my favorite from the first half of the show. I could listen to “Georgia” on repeat- so soothing and soulful. The crowd absolutely LOVED him. You could tell how happy he was to be singing for his hometown. Way to go, Matt! SIGN MATT GIRAUD!

This is a great interview.
"I'm sure it will happen, I'm talking to a lot of different labels but it's a matter of me wanting to get the right type of deal"
You ladies were absolutely right in guessing he's the one who has the final say as to what label he's going to work with. And he sounds so determined to surprise everyone with the music he will produce, I believe in u Matty G! Go Go Go!!

I remember a few people saying that they felt like the main hold-up to Matt being signed was that he wouldn't compromise too much of his musical integrity. I honestly didn't believe this at first because I just couldn't conceive of an up-and-coming artist delaying being signed to get a deal that they really wanted, But it seems like this is the case for Matt. In a way I'm nervous because that answer makes it sound like there was a possible deal offered and maybe if he had taken it he would be making an announcement soon, but he decided that it wasn't for him and he turned it down. I don't know. On the one hand I'm like take what the hell you can get Matt! And then on the other I'm proud that he is holding his own and really just want him to record music he can be proud of. I really hope that one of those lables that are coming to shows to see him decides to offer him a deal he can't refuse.

So I am finally home and what a weekend I had. First of all Matt was on fire last night. Seriously the best I have ever heard him. If I wasn't already a crazy obessesed fan I would have become one last night. It was such an emotional night and so many wonderful things happened. But before I go into more detail regarding the concert I want to thank sgr for helping burn almost 300 CD's way into the early morning, Desouthie thanks for the support and helping me get over my shyness so that I could hand out the CD's and ask people to chant with us. Last but not least thank you Lisa and Southie for helping me pass out the CD's and persuading people to chant with us. This truly was a great experience and it felt great to be doing something constructive and beneficial for Matt! We received such a great response from everyone. Most of the time our job was easy because as soon as people heard I was giving out Matt CD's we were swarmed! It was so touching and the little kids were besides themselves with excitement when we gave them Matt's music. One little girl started jumping in excitement and screaming whoo-hoo...so cute. Another little boy said in excitement that he was hoping to meet Matt so he could ask him to sign the CD cover...I hope he got to do this! It really was an incredible experience doing this. I thought I would be embarrassed and hate doing it but I enjoyed it tremendously!

Jenna did an amazing job. Jenna and Lisa hit the pavement and handed out all the CD's. Dsouthie went around telling people to chant signmattgiraud - I told a few people here and there - still trying to get past shyness - so that's why I am so proud of these girls. Cecilie's SignMattGiraud shirt was a hit, no doubt! OUr chant was successful our meeting with Matt was amzaing.

Matt was amazing.
The whole entire weekend was amazing - from Sgr welcoming us into her home to hearing a street band playing hard to handle in Ann Arbor to going out to Monaco Bay in Kalamazoo to meeting Matt at the fences to the success of the jenna's plan to hand out cd's to spreading the word to signmattgiraud to our floor seats our view of matt on stage to meeting a special someone before the concert to getting our backstage passes! OMG What a weekend. It was more than anybody could ever wish for - greater than we could have ever imagined and the best part of all was meeting all these wonderful ladies that I have been talking to for months - and how much fun it was to hang out with other Matty G lovers and to all bond in such a special way - and that my friends was the icing on the CAKE!

Your so welcome Jenna! You know I'm always going to be more then ready and willing to do whatever I can to promote Matt! Cuz I just luv him so much! I love you And I have to say that passing out those CD's was so fun for me also because people were SO appreciative of them..they were so excited!!..I felt like it was Christmas early! Very Happy Everyone I was so proud of Jenna cuz she really came out of her "shy shell" and did great with this!

I'm short for time right now because I'm only on my lunch break and will type up more later on today but I just wanted to say that this whole weekend was one of the most unbelievable experiences I've had in a long time...OMG!! it was soo awesome and I'm brimming over with happiness from it all! ...and YES we ALL did end up getting backstage passes and got to "mingle" with Matt and the others for OVER AN HR!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!!! :-))))) I got a GREAT pic with Matt and his adorable Dad and alot of other awesome pics that I will be posting soon! We just had so, so much fun! It was a very emotional experience going to Monaco Bay where he played (more details to come) and being in his hometown arena and to hear that love was just almost overwhelming but I ain't complaining Very Happy ..I wish everyone on here could have been there for that! I'm so glad with Cecilie coming so far that everything turned out PERFECT for her also! Yayyy!!!

Ok..gonna run for now..looking forward to giving you all more details later!!! Stay tuned!! cheers


P.S. I'm sorry I did want to say one thing I forgot...I wish that SGR would have been with us when we got the backstage passes and would have been able to go with us but she already had prior arrangements with another friend of her's so we were separated from her...but her and Jenna did the burning of all of the CD's and worked very hard...Sorry SGR.. Crying or Very sad that you didn't get to go to the meet and greet with us! Hopefully we will all get to talk to Matt again at the January show!
