American Idol 15 Finale SPOILERS – Watch the Alums Rehearse (VIDEO)

A SLEW of American Idols are in Los Angeles rehearsing for Thursday’s April 7 series finale. There is media scattered here and there across the internets, and I’ve gathered what I could find right here. Click to check out the massive list of Idols who will be performing. Kelly Clarkson already taped her performance. Jennifer Hudson, LaToya London and Fantasia from season 3 are taping a performance on Monday.

Most of the alums will perform live and are rehearsing as we speak. For instance, Season 1 runner-up, Justin Guarini appeared to be rehearsing something with S6 winner, Jordin Sparks, S2 second runner up, Kimberley Locke and S9 alum Pia Toscano. In one clip, Jordin is singing her hit song, “No Air.” There’s more video at Justin’s Facebook page.

It looks like some of the rock alums will be performing together. That’s S13 winner, Caleb Johnson, S10 alum, James Durbin, executive producer, Nigel Lythgoe, S5 alum, Chris Daughtry and S4 alum, Constantine Maroulis.

And here is series of snaps and videos I yoinked from the American Idol snapchat. It’s SUPER SPOILERY! Please don’t get mad at me TPTB. You know you love us! Heh.

This is: S6 runner up Blake Lewis, S13 winner Caleb Johnson, S10 winner Scotty McCreery, S14 winner Nick Fradiani, S9 winner Lee DeWyze, S5 alum Ace Young and he’s got his hand on his wife’s butt, S3 runner up Diana Degarmo.

Here’s how pathetic an Idol fan I am. I know that’s S5 alum Bucky Covington just by the sliver of his blonde hair there next to Constantine.


The photos are cropped, but that’s OK. You’re going to get a panoramic view of the entire room in this series of snap videos from American Idol. If you have snapchat you are going to want to keep checking their account in the next few days. There is also Nick Fradiani playing some Coldplay on the piano, Sonia Vaid and Avalon Young with a wardrobe preview. Caleb, Constantine and James singing “Tobacco Road.” A massive season 15 reunion, with a few more alums thrown in,
