Just got off the phone with Blake Lewis!

In anticipation of his June 1st appearance in Fishkill, I just interviewed Blake Lewis, the runner-up on Season Six of "American Idol."

Calling me from the West Coast, Blake was really excited about his K-Fest appearance at Dutchess Stadium and about getting out in front of a live crowd.

"I love playing shows," Blake told me. "It never gets old for me. I’m just excited to give some love back to the fans."

Our conversation touched a lot of topics, from his experience on "Idol" to his musical influences to even being a self-proclaimed "nerd." You can read the complete story on Blake in the May 30th edition of "Enjoy!" in the Poughkeepsie Journal.

In short, he was a really cool guy to talk with, he loves his fans and he seemed genuinely grateful for the success he's been afforded.

Blake was kind enough to answer three questions from "Sean's Space" readers, the answers to which I'll post here on Wednesday. Check back then to see if Blake answered yours!

Until then, I just wanted to pass along a big thanks to Michelle from 19 Entertainment, to the dozens of fans who submitted questions and, of course, to Blake for taking the time to chat.

Thanks so much for this great Interview, complete with fan questions! I really enjoyed it, and the down to earth way he answered it all.
Blake is my favorite Idol, and I can't wait to hear how the summer tour stuff goes! :-)
