This week, the Season 11 touring Idols returned to L.A.'s Nokia Theater--the venue where this year's "American Idol" finale took place not long ago--and Reality Rocks caught up with them to see how the tour is going, what's next for them once the tour wraps up in September, and of course, what they think of all the recent "Idol" judging shakeups.

Joshua Ledet bolted early when he received a special surprise backstage visit from his beloved mama (totally understandable), but here's the rest of the gang. Enjoy!
