American Idol Season 9 Updated Schedule, Including Guest Judges!

I’ve got the updated American Idol Season 9 schedule, just for you!

  • American Idol Season 9 Schedule HERE.

I added the guest judges to the schedule–the auditions begin and end with Victoria Beckham in Boston and Denver, Mary J. Blige in Atlanta, Shania Twain in Chicago, Kristin Chenoweth in Orlando, Joe Jonas and Neil Patrick Harris in Dallas, and Avril Lavigne and Katy Perry in Los Angeles.

Also notable:   Tuesday’s premiere, the Boston auditions, is 2 hours.   The next night, in Atlanta is 1 hr 15 minutes.   Wednesday shows start at 9 pm beginning January 27 and stay that way, except for the Top 12 performance shows for both men and woman, which are 2 hours long.

The schedule FOX released only contains dates through the first week of the finals.   I find it interesting that FOX describes the first performance show “Finalists Perform” and in the press release “The finalists will be revealed”, without mentioning numbers.   Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but could the producers have a twist up there sleeves? A wild card contestant, perhaps? Hm.
