The Idols are live!

There's been a whole lotta screaming going on as the Top 10 finalists of Season 6 of ''American Idol'' crisscross the country on the ''American Idols Live'' tour.

Winner Jordin Sparks, runner-up Blake Lewis, Melinda Doolittle, Sanjaya -- you know the names -- are in the middle of a 56-date marathon, arriving today at the Allentown Fair and Friday at Philadelphia's Wachovia Center.

The more than two-hour shows have been described as Las Vegas-style revues, with the singers taking solo spins and also working in various combos in front of a seven-piece backing band.

Last Friday at Long Island's Nassau Coliseum, Sparks plucked out Jewel's ''You Were Meant for Me'' on the acoustic guitar and Lewis used electronic looping set-up to liven up Maroon 5's ''She Will Be Loved.'' Doolittle was stellar on ''A Natural Women.'' Reviews by critics have been mixed -- but it's the fans who buy the tickets, and they're loving it.
