CONSTANTINE'S IDOL CRUSH!

American Idol's final countdown to the winner begins tonight.

While most of America will be watching the Top 13 sing for their lives, one former Idol, Constantine Maroulis will only have eyes for the newbie at the judge's table: Kara DioGuardi!

"I think Kara is amazing, I've had the biggest crush on her forever," he told OK!'s Rana Meyer at a rehearsal for the Broadway opening of Rock of Ages, where he plays the lead role.

"I remember her on a show from a few seasons ago, The One on ABC. She was the lone bright spot," he continued to gush. "She’s an incredible songwriter. She’s fronted a band, is a solo artist. And she’s beautiful."

Talk about devotion! Constantine's even come up with a plan to Rock of Ages, a musical featuring hot hits from the eighties, right in front of his fave judge's eyes.

"Hopefully, they’ll put us on the show," he said. "They’ll do a big 80s night and have us on there and we can kick some butt."

Of course, Constantine plans to do just that when Rock of Ages opens April 7 at New York City's Brooks Atkinson Theatre.

And he wouldn't mind if a few of his fellow Idol alum are in the audience.

"Carrie Underwood is such a huge star. I’m sort of honored to have been in the running with a girl like that who has become so big," he said.

"Hopefully she comes and checks the show out. I know she loves the 80s and she sings the hell out of it."

Just like we hope all the Idols do tonight.

American Idol airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Fox.

Former Idols Advise the Top 13
Tuesday March 10, 2009

As the top 13 compete for the first time tonight, Us enlisted finalists from seasons past to handicap the competition and tell Us what the newbies are in for this year.

CONSTANTINE MAROULIS, season 4 (2005)
"Lil Rounds is a powerhouse and I dig her. I think she'll make top 6. As a theatre guy [starring in Broadway's Rock of Ages], it's hard for me to not root for Adam as well. He has a gift as a vocalist. I hope he does well, 'cause it is good for everyone in theatre. Plus, it would be really hard to go back to the chorus after a subpar finish on Idol. So, go Adam!"

Village Voice article

http://www.villagevoice.com/2009-03-11/ ... -at-party/

Fortunately, lots of people—well, gay people—still care about Broadway, where 20-plus shows are opening by the end of the season and swarms of Oscar winners will get wackily crowded out of Tony categories. Sneaking in between the trophy holders, the hard-rock jukebox musical Rock of Ages is moving to the Brooks Atkinson while boasting the lowest top prices and tightest T-shirts on the main strip.

At an open rehearsal last week, we learned that, on some level, the show is "a celebration of the stupidity of rock," complete with a love story, a flushing toilet, and the guy who had to drop out of Xanadu. It also stars Constantine Maroulis, the nice Greek-American who belted his way into the top six on American Idol's season four. "In this climate, this is the perfect show," Maroulis assured me at the event. "You get a great time—we were called a 'legitimate artistic achievement' by the press. We might have some trouble convincing the highbrow peeps, but that's not our crowd anyway!"

The show's '80s arena rock, said Maroulis, involves big songs and chords and some very large hair. And you can eventually watch it from arena seating; New Line just bought it for the movies. Will he be in the film? "Let's hope so," the rocker said, laughing. "At least I can maybe sing the tracks for Zac Efron or whoever gets the part instead of me." (Nuh-uh. If anyone gets to force something into Zac's lips, it's me!)

Being a twisted sister, I couldn't leave without asking about his reality-show swan song, Nickelback's "How You Remind Me." "I love Nickelback!" Maroulis swore. "But you were booted off," I shrieked. "Don't you want to Poison their asses?" "I think that was an unfortunate part of my journey on American Idol," he admitted. (Hey, I love Journey!) "I was set to do another song—something by U2 or Maroon 5—but they couldn't get the rights that fast. That was then. Nowadays, it's like, 'Sing it! Even if it sucks, our catalog will go through the roof!' " Oh, really? In that case, I'll promptly be pitching them numbers from my new Rush Limbaugh musical, Crock of Ages.

NY Post 3/26/09
WHEN it comes to Broadway, you're on a need-to-know basis -- as in, you need to know which shows will generate the biggest buzz this season. Here are a few you'll definitely be hearing about:

* "Rock of Ages": Last year's off-Broadway hit takes you on a journey back to 1987, when a big-city rocker falls for a small-town girl in Los Angeles. Their love story is told in a bar. Former "American Idol" contestant Constantine Maroulis stars in the show, which is sure to have audience members singing along and dancing to hits from the likes of Journey, Styx and Whitesnake. Brooks Atkinson Theatre, 256 W. 47th St.; 212-307-7171. Opens April 7.
