2013 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show on Sunday, March 3.

the Idol microphone – like the carrying of the Olympic Torch – starting
in New York City on March 1, traveling through Boston on March 2, and
reaching Philadelphia on March 3.
microphone will arrive at the Flower Show, which opened today (March 2)
and continues through March 10 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center,
at about 10:30 a.m. It will be carried around the show floor by PHS
President Drew Becher and Abington High School student Erinmarie Byrnes,
whose school garden club is competing in the Flower Show.
Idol fans, inspirational heroes, local officials and former Idol
performers will take the mic to other iconic American landmarks in
Philadelphia, including the Museum of Art and Rittenhouse Square.
mic will also travel to Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Nashville, Detroit,
Chicago, Oklahoma City, Dallas, Phoenix, Las Vegas, and finish in
Hollywood, just in time for the Top 10 Live performance of American Idol
on March 13. The mic will travel a total of 5,000 miles, hitting 13
cities in 13 days.
