S: The Concert of a Lifetime!
FC: A Dream Come True!! Blizzard Tour March 3rd, 2011
1: While sitting at home one night over Christmas break I was on facebook and a friend of mine left me a comment saying I bet you are excited for the Nelly concert that was just announced a few minutes ago. Instantly, my heart dropped and I googled it while freaking out!!!..The news was true!! I started texting everyone in my phone, crying, and screaming to my mom who was sleeping. I was in such shock!!!! Xl93 was giving away free tickets to the concert but I could never get through the call line so I bought my ticket the very first day they came out at noon. Everyday after that I was stressing because all I wanted was backstage passes to meet Nelly..I mean I am his biggest fan EVER!! Monday, the week of the concert I heard about this contest you could enter to sing, dance or do whatever you wanted to try and win backstage passes to eat lunch with, take pictures, go on stage to doogie, and hang out with your favorite artist. I was so excited because I had the best idea of singing my favorite song to my action figure Nelly doll. When I submitted the video everyone was commenting on my video and LOVED it..except for the other competitors..they said I was creepy and that the video was recorded like a blare witch project..however I didnt care! I would do anything to meet Nelly!!!!
2: I am the biggest Nelly fan ever, absolutely obsessed! I have liked Nelly since I was in the 4th grade when he performed at the Grammy awards to his hit song "Country Grammar" and his belt buckle broke open and his pants fell down. | I collected his chains, cds, posters, scrapbooks, clothing, calendars, would pretend to write him letters, and recorded his shows. | I even have his action figure! | When I was in the 7th grade I pretended to marry Nelly and still have the wedding ring today! | *Take 5!* -mom | Introducing myself to the viewers! --Words from the video.
3: OW! Uh, Uh Check it, Check it..Uh Uh! | I, love you, and I need you.. Nelly I love you. | I do!..Need you. | No matter what I do | All I think about is You. | Even when Im with my boo, boy ya know im crazy over you. No matter what I do all I think about is you, even when I'm with my boo ya know I'm crazy over you.
4: I met this chick and she just moved right up the block from me. And she got the hots for me, the finest thing I need to see. | But oh no, NO | she got a man and a son, OH-OH, but that’s okay ‘Cause I wait for my cue and just listen, play my position Like a shortstop, pick up e’rything mami hittin’. | And in no TIME, | I better make this friend MINE and that’s for sure ‘Cause I-I never been the type to break up a happy home But there’s something ‘bout baby girl, I just can’t leave her ‘lone So tell me, ma, what’s it gonna be. | She said, "You don’t know what you mean to me," come on
5: No matter what I do, All I think about is you. Even when I’m with my Boo, Boy, you know I’m crazy over you. No matter what I do, All I think about is you. Even when I’m with my Boo, You know I’m crazy over you. | Uh-uh-uh-uh! I see a lot in your look and I never say a word. I know how n****s start actin’ trippin’ , and hate up all the girls. And there’s no way Nelly go for it, Ain’t f****n’ with no dame, as you could see. | But I-I like your steeze, your STYLE, your whole demeanor. | The way you come through and holler, and swoop me in his TWO-seater .
6: Now that’s GANGSTA and I got special ways to thank ya, don’t you forget it. But it ain’t that easy for you to back up and leave him. | But you and me we got ties for different reasons I respect that and right before I turned to leave | She said, "You don’t know what you mean to me," come on. | No matter what I do, All I think about is you. Even when I’m with my Boo, You know I’m crazy over you. | Sing it for me, K! I love you and I need you Nelly, I love you, I DO!
7: And it’s MORE than you’ll ever know. Boy, it’s for sure. | You can always count on my LOVE, Forever more, yeah, yeah. | East coast, I know you’re SHAKIN right. Down south, I know you’re bouncin’ right. West coast, I know you’re walkin’ right. (‘Cause you don’t know what you mean to me). Midwest, I see you swingin’ right. | No matter what I do. All I think about is YOU. | Even when I’m with my Boo, "Nelly" you know I’m CRAZY over you. East coast, I know you’re shakin’ right. Down south, I know you’re bouncin’ right. West coast, I know you’re walkin’ right. (‘Cause you don’t know what you mean to me). Midwest, I see you swingin’ right.

9: The morning of the concert I received an email stating that I was not chosen for the video but they would still give me backstage passes to meet just Nelly since I was such a huge fan. Around 9am XL93 announced they were giving away another set of backstage passes to meet Nelly but you have to be caller #9 which was a challenge. I called, and the line was busy and I started crying and mom yelled "Keep trying!" So I called again and Trevor D answered the phone and said "Hello XL93" and I said "Did I win backstage passes to Nelly!?" While mom was in the background screaming "DID YOU GET IT? DID YOU WIN!" and Harv was on the couch sleeping. I explained to them that I was the facebook stalker that commented on their wall everyday and was the huge Nelly fan and they said "Ooooh Chelsi the facebook girl, we know you!" They asked to talk to my mom on the phone because she was crying and freaking out! They told my mom that I won the backstage passes and she freaked saying "You don't know how many Nelly cakes Ive had to make since the fourth grade!" They laughed and found us very entertaining because they still replay us on the radio winning. I won backstage passes to meet and greet 3OH!3, Sick Puppies and NELLY!!!!!

61: Mom got one picture with him and she pulled him back in for another and he said "We good ma." and she said "No I didn't get a picture with you!"..haha!
62: Got pulled over for speeding...A LOT..but he gave me a little break by decreasing the speed..My first speeding ticket. Pooped out after the big night!
63: After meeting Nelly mom and I walked all over to buy a Nelly souvenier and they did not have any but Krysta and James found one for me since I gave them my extra tickets.!
64: My love for Nelly continues today and always will! He is an amazing artist and I have so much fun listening and dancing to his music; plus he is the most gorgeous man in the world! I waited for this day to come for years. and was the happiest girl in the entire world!! I'm glad I went with the friends I did and brought my mom backstage..it was the BEST night EVER!! I pray to meet Nelly again and go to more of his shows..hopefully sing "Dilemma" with him!!
65: I gave my backstage pass ticket to my aunt to meet 3OH!3 and Sick Puppies because I didn't want to lose my spot in line after waiting all day. But she got their autographs for me!
