Last night Gina had a solo show in Chicago. My bestie Sam had decided to go (and to visit our friend Brenna). As she was leaving, she discovered that Melinda, Jordin, and Chris Rich had come to surprise Gina. Sam went to the show (that started at 11) and stayed at the bar until 3 am...when she left, Melinda and others (minus Jordin) were still there. Here's the details I got from Sam:

-Melinda and Jordin were DIRECTLY in front of her, but blocked by security guards (which were Jordin's own personal guards). Sam said she couldn't really get to them, but also didn't want to bug them because it was obvious that they were there for Gina, not for fans/pictures.
-Gina sang for 2 hours, took a 15 minute break, and then sang for another hour. She did mostly covers (including Bad Romance, Harder To Breathe, a couple U2 songs, My Life Would Suck Without You...an 80's medly). Sam said Gina sounded fantastic, despite the fact that she sang so much.
-Melinda and Jordin were dancing and having fun- especially during "Party in the USA" (Sam says Melinda can DANCE)
-Gina sang "Hero" by Foo Fighters and dedicated it to Melinda. Melinda had tears in here eyes.  Crying  Big hug
-Someone spilled beer on Jordin and she freaked out
-Someone else approached Jordin and said "you're JORDIN SPARKS! what are you doing HERE?" and  Jordin said "There's nowhere else I'd rather be right now" Rose
-Chris Richardson was very drunk and running around all over the place
-Melinda got taken away by the security to move to the VIP room. Sam yelled her name and waved...Melinda turned around and waved back. Sam says her ONLY dissapointment of the night was not getting to talk to Melinda.
-Sam and Brenna talked to Gina after the show, and Gina said that anytime we want to come to her show let her know and we'll be on the guestlist. She also said "I was just sitting in my apartment...my doorbell rang...and Melinda and Jordin were standing there. I pooped my pants. I'm not kidding. I literally pooped my pants."

So, it sounds like it was a really fun night. I love seeing season 6 back together again.

We seriously had the BEST time!

Only a few clarifications...
Those weren't Jordin's personal bodyguards. They were provided for the group by the venue. They were huge and really took their job seriously!  Chained to the Floor
I can't dance...really. Dancing Banana
I had NO idea Gina dedicated a song to me. I was crying because she was so dang good. However, now I'm crying because she dedicated a song to me.  Crying
Chris wasn't really drunk...that's just the way he acts sometimes. HILARIOUS!  HAR
I'm so sad I didn't get to talk to Sam. I will make it up to her. However, it was so dark in there, that at one point I did think I actually was talking to Sam...apparently not. Oops
Gina did poop. Rolling On Floor Laughing
