Britney Spears to Appear on Finale? Plus, Kara’s Coronation Song and David Cook’s Charity Single

2nd Update:   Contrary to reports, Perez Hilton’s inside sources are claiming Britney Spears WILL NOT be performing on the finale. More will be revealed, I’m sure.

UPDATE:   More info on the song, “This is How I Want to Be” rumored to be this year’s coronation song:   It appeared on a 2001 release by singer Kristine Blond, and the lyrics are decidedly not the stuff made of coronation songs.   Between the age of the song and the lyrical content, I’m thinking the rumor is wrong…

Rumor has it the Season 8 coronation song is called “This is How I Want To Be” written by Joseph Belmaati, Jorgen Kjell Elofsson, Hed Mich Hansen, and Kara DioGuardi.

Also, according to rumor, Adam and Kris can re-arrange the song, but are not allowed play instruments during the performance.

In other news, Extra is reporting that Britney Spears is rumored to be taking the stage with Lionel Richie, Carlos Santana, Cyndi Lauper, Queen Latifah, Black Eyed Peas and Keith Urban, and David Cook for the Idol finale on Wednesday…

Also, David Cook will perform the song “Permanent”, according to a MySpace message from Our Lady Peace.   The performance will be downloadable from iTunes with all proceeds going to David’s charity for brain tumor research that he recently set up for his late brother Adam, who recently succumbed to cancer.

We’ve already heard

  • Also set to appear:   Jason Mraz, according to his website
  • Keith Urban will duet with Kris Allen, Allison Iraheta with Cyndi Lauper
  • Rumored to appear:   KISS and David Bowie (to duet with Adam Lambert)
