American Idol contestants Anoop (Noop Dogg) Desai and Lil Rounds showed they still had a large following even after being eliminated from the 2009 competition in May as hundreds of students and teachers welcomed them to Camino Nuevo Charter Academy in Los Angeles as part of its Solar 4R Schools celebration.

The two stars mingled with students, signed autographs and test drove model solar cars given to them during a dedication ceremony for the school’s new 1.36-kilowatt solar-electric system. Camino Nuevo 12th-grader Christopher Carmona spoke to the crowd at the school's solar dedication event.

The system was made possible thanks to a partnership of several companies and organizations. FOX and “American Idol” first partnered with Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF), E-Village Solar and Los Angeles Department of Water & Power (LADWP) to green a past season’s “American Idol” finale, placing a solar-electric system on the red carpet. These partners brought the power of the sun to Camino Nuevo.
