Michael Johns's social circle just keeps on getting more glamorous.

A couple of weeks ago he was hanging out with P Diddy, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. Now he's partying with the President.

The elated Australian has revealed that this Saturday he will be the guest of an ESPN host at the dinner party the President throws every year for the White House press corp.

"I can't believe I'm about to say this," Michael, 29, told the American Idol Extra show.

"Tony Kornheiser has asked me to be his guest at his table at the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

"I'm going to the White House!

"As a foreigner, living here for the last ten years, how cool is that?'

"That's validation!"

While Michael dines with the President, semi-finalists Kady Malloy and Colton Berry have been playing at being pop stars again.

As we have already reported, the pair have released a cover of the Cyndi Lauper hit, Time After Time, on the Internet.


Now they've made made a video to go with it. This is what happens when two ex-Idols get hold of a sense of humor and their dad's video camera:

Kady has also 'done a Castro' and recorded her own version of Jeff Buckley's version of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah and posted in on her Myspace page.

Asia'h Epperson, who left the show the same week as Kady, has announced that she will be joining the bill of the all-reject Moving On concert next month.

Kady, Asia'h and semi-finalist Alaina Whitaker, as well some contestants from previous seasons will all be performing at the Mabee Center in Tulsa, Ok. on May 9th.
