So excited that I won. I tweeted with the girl in charge of this contest and she said that I can buy the O-Town t-shirt, go o the venue and go to the Meet & Greet line right before the show and show them the t-shirt. I can have O-Town sign it and take a picture with them. I want to do this so I am going to buy the t-shirt. It is $33 with $5.68 shipping for a total of $38.68. Since I don’t have to pay for a ticket I’m definitely doing this. I really want to meet Erik-Michael. He is my favorite. I am an #EManiac.

I Do (Cherish You)
Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche)
Because of You

Last, but not least, they showed a video with words that Donnie says that we have to repeat. Then they came out and sang the following songs:

We Own Tonight

Survive You—Jon Knight sang his solo part
Didn’t I Blow Your Mind / Valentine Girl / If You Go Away / Please Don’t Go Girl
