In addition to viewing one-of-a-kind AMERICAN IDOL memorabilia - including framed platinum records, Ryan Seacrest's suit, Carrie Underwood's finale dress and David Cook's guitar - and photos, fans can take a trip down memory lane by watching the special "Welcome Home" documentary that showcases all nine past IDOL winners.
