So who IS the Idol alum who will be performing an Elvis tune on Wednesday’s results show? Idol producers haven’t spilled YET, but astute Idol fans are picking up on the clues, which are everywhere.
Those clues point to Season 7 Idol Brooke White and If I Can Dream castmate Justin Gaston joining forces to sing Elvis Presley’s “If I Can Dream” on Wednesday’s results show.
- Justin tweets to Brooke, “Playing music with @realbrookewhite . Not the fake one. Party in the UK” Brooke tweets back, “Playing music with @justinmgaston“
- In episode 5 of If I Can Dream, a producer tells Justin that he’ll be performing in front of a “massive audience” within the next few weeks, per Simon Fuller, but he doesn’t have the details yet. (See video after the jump)
- In the preview for the upcoming episode of If I Can Dream, Justin is sitting at a piano, with a suspiciously Brooke White-like blond, plunking out the notes to “If I Can Dream” (See video after the the jump).
Fred Bronson, of @IdolsNow tweeted tonight, “COMING TOMORROW MORNING: Exclusive interview with Idol finalist who is returning Wed night to sing an Elvis song — and their duet partner.” (If you have an iPhone? make sure to download the app! It’s awesome.)
By the way, two summers ago, Justin was a contestant on Nashville Star. I happened to watch, and can tell you–he was terrible and was eliminated pretty quickly. Nashville Star judge, Billy Ray Cyrus introduced Justin to his then-fifteen year-old daughter Miley, who began dating Justin, who was 20 at the time. Seriously…
