UPDATE: Nigel tweets that the Top 6 will sing 1 Queen song, with the second being any song of their choosing. What’s on your wish list for the Idols? Is there a song you are just dying to hear your favorite sing?
Keep watching this space for updates, but @blkeener tells me that this week’s theme is Queen. Not a surprise. Roger Taylor and Brian May will be performing with the contestants on Wednesday. I’m sure there will be another theme. Hopefully we will find out what it is later tonight.
Katy Perry will be performing on the Thursday results show, along with the Queen Official Tribute Band. Adam Lambert, who is fronting Queen for some summer concerts, will NOT be appearing, according to Reality Rocks. The Idol guest star will be Stefano Langone, who will debut his new single.
Here’s the official press release from FOX. Roger Taylor and Brian May will sing with the finalists in a group number. No mention of a second theme.
