ETA: Michael Buble has been confirmed for tonight’s show…
Tony Bennett pulls out of tonight’s Idol performance:
The legendary crooner, who turned eighty a few months ago, is not well enough to put his golden pipes on the air.
According to a spokesperson for the star, he has a cold.
With just hours left until tonight’s live show, producers from “American Idol” are working hard to find a stand in. A source close to the show told Access Hollywood they are trying to get Canadian singer Michael Buble to fill in.
Get well soon, Tony!
