Bobby Bones has lots of memories from his time at American Idol. Most of them are during the shows and all of the taping as he spent a good portion of 2019 filming the show. However, there were also several moments behind the scenes or 'after taping' that Bones found to be the most exciting.
The season finale aired on Sunday, May 19th and after the finale there was a dinner with Bones, some of the producers and judges Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan and Katy Perry. Also at the dinner was all of the spouses and dates of those there. Of course that meant actor Orlando Bloom was there with Perry. Bones felt a bit out of place because he didn't bring a date, and there were all these super well-known people there. Bones said that Bloom was very nice and a genuine guy. He had a great night at the dinner.
Bones ended the night with the American Idol wrap party with all of the workers.
