"The magic concoction is hot water and I put honey in it and cut up some ginger root," Vonzell reveals. "Traditional Throat Coat tea is in there, a little bit of lemon juice and some emergency energy stuff. So it gives you energy and coats your throat."

Anthony prefers his pre-show tea plain, as long as he's got a view of the venue filling up as he sips on it.

 "I can never get enough of this ... this is the most incredible thing you could ever go through." — Anthony Fedorov

"I can never get enough of this," says Fedorov, who was born with a lump in his throat that doctors thought might prevent him from ever even talking. "With every person that I see that's walking in here it takes me to a different level. I mean, this is the most incredible thing you could ever go through. ... If I die tomorrow, I will die happy. I'm serious."

As a child, Fedorov went by the name Tony (or Little Tony, to be exact), but he became such a big Marc Anthony fan that his friends started calling him Anthony. He's since met Marc Anthony and plans to invite him to a show. "Maybe I will have a chance to do a song in Spanish as this tour goes on," he wonders aloud.

Backstage, while Jessica has her makeup applied a few feet away, the tour's hairstylist trims Nikko's buzz cut. Nikko planned to wear a St. Louis Cardinals hat during the show, but last night he tossed it into the crowd. "That was spontaneous," he says. "But I think I might do that every night."

Of course, replacements aren't too hard to come by when your father is legendary Cardinals shortstop Ozzie Smith. "I'm about to make a couple of phone calls, see if I can get what, 40 more hats? Hopefully they'll hook me up."

Nikko's portion of the show is one of the few that features a song not performed on "Idol" — Justin Timberlake's "Like I Love You." Looking for material to showcase his dancing skills, Nikko was leaning toward a Michael Jackson song, but the trial was still ongoing when rehearsals started.

"It would've been a bad thing if he was found guilty," Nikko says.

With minutes to go before showtime, Constantine and Scott discover a door outside their dressing room that leads under the bleachers. "We could pinch someone's ass if we wanted to," Constantine says. Instead, they go for the feet of two teenage girls. When the girls realize what's going on, they scream. "We wanted you to win!" one says.

"Did you vote?" he asks.

"Yeah, like 20 times a night," she replies.

"Well, when you're dealing in millions and millions [of votes], 20 just won't do anymore," he jokingly lectures them. "If you like someone, you need to seriously work. We're talking add a zero to that 20. But too bad. I'm history now."

Back in the women's dressing room, Bo continues his impressions, poking fun at "Scotty the Body" 's (as he calls Savol) signature hand gestures and Carrie's run-in-place dance move. Soon he's mock-interviewing the girls.

 "Gonzell, I got a question to ask you, a serious question ..." — Bo Bice

"Gonzell, I got a question to ask you, a serious question," he says to Vonzell. "How did it feel when you found out you weren't going to have to deliver mail anymore?"

"Well," she answers, "you know I love my ..."

"All right, enough about you," Bo cuts her off. "Let's get to something more important."


"Nadia, what kind of underwear are you wearing?"
