Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that’s why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
The victory lap has already begun for “American Idol” season nine champion Lee DeWyze. The former paint store salesman from Illinois took home the “American Idol” crown last week during a stirring series of live shows last week, and this week he’ll make the rounds on television talk shows and in-person appearances. On Monday (May 31), DeWyze stopped by Walt Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, to hang out with two of the biggest stars in the country in Mickey and Minnie Mouse. DeWyze was a special celebrated guest at the “American Idol Experience,” a theme park attraction that allows people to audition for the show and get critiques from virtual judges. A huge crowd turned out for DeWyze’s appearance on Memorial Day. DeWyze will be stopping by the MTV News office this Wednesday (June 2), so stay tuned for more on the latest “American Idol” winner.
DeWyze wasn’t the only star celebrating a victory this week, as actor Vince Vaughn attended the first game of the Stanley Cup Finals at the United Center in Chicago (his hometown Blackhawks defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 6-5) and Miley Cyrus held a listening session for her sure-fire smash Can’t Be Tamed at the Villamagna Hotel in Madrid, Spain.
