The American Idols drive to India

This week’s American Idol Ford music video took the Idolettes on a car ride around the world. The whirlwind global tour took the contestants to Japan, Germany, and India.

Of course they had to stop at the Taj Mahal:

Contestant Lee DeWyze dressed the part by wearing a kurta sherwani:

On the making of video on the American Idol website, viewers got a few glimpses of what went on behind the scenes.

Here’s DeWyze on set:

And here’s a look at some of the props on set:

  1. I was going to Tweet you while writing that asking for the proper name! Sherwani. Need to go back and change it. I was basically searching for “Indian Men’s Attire” and trying to figure out rather quickly by watching the show.

    So thank you 🙂

      Hi, TI! I meant to comment on your post re: the sherwani, but then it totally slipped my mind.

      I was surprised at how nice the costumes were for that week’s Ford video. Lee could wear his outfit to an Indian wedding and fit right in. And that’s a lot of South Asian props when you consider that they were only shown on air for 10 seconds or so.
