Anoop Desai on strict N.C. State Fair training program after American Idol tour

WRAL posted a fun video this morning that features “local dude” Anoop Desai going through a rather rigorous training program of deep-fried foods, robot dance moves and some weather report push-ups.

Anoop is also warming up his vocal cords for his first solo performance post-American Idol. He’ll be in Dorton Arena during the N.C. State Fair Thursday, Oct. 22, on Food Lion Hunger Relief Day. If you come by the Fair that night, you’ll end up with a pretty good deal, as four cans of food will get you in the gates for free and Anoop’s concert costs only $5.

The UNC-Chapel Hill alum still has great seats left for his show, which are available online.

About Cotton Candy

Karlie Justus - blogged for the 2008 / 2009 N.C. State Fairs. This is her bio from 2009: When I'm not blogging for the N.C. State Fair, I go by Karlie Justus--but Cotton Candy suits me just fine. My earliest memories of the Fair are of the times my parents would bring my brother and I up from Asheville, N.C. for a double dose of the Fair and a N.C. State football game. Fast-forward two decades later, and I'm a public information officer for the deep fried celebration whose must-see Fair attractions include the giant pumpkins, decorated cakes and deep fried Oreos.
