American Idol creating a “winners showcase” in Las Vegas? What ever could that be? Right now, it’s still at the rumor stage, so you never know. From the Las Vegas Sun:
It’s a Wicked Whisper & Racy Rumor, but my sources are nearly 100 percent accurate. I’m hearing rumblings that “American Idol” will create a “winners showcase” for a possible permanent but ever-changing residency show to kick off the opening of The Quad at The Linq, when both become The Q.
While here, “Idol” execs had discussions with Quad entertainment officials, reviewed its makeover and took a tour of the under-construction The Linq opening this year with its 550-feet High Roller observation wheel. In another WWRR, there’s buzz that The Light Group has put in a bid to run the now-shuttered B.B. King’s Jazz Club at The Mirage.
American Idol has taken up residency more or less, at the Cirque du Soliel theater at the Mirage hotel in Vegas these past 3 week. It’s wear the season 12 semi-final rounds are taking place.
American Idol 5 winner, Taylor Hicks, is currently performing a current residency at the Paris in Las Vegas. Maybe that’s where TPTB got the idea….
