Here’s some news. American Idol Extra, from the FOX Reality Channel, will premier on Thursday, March 17 at 10 PM ET/PT. The past 2 seasons, Matthew Rogers (S3, 11th place) and Mikalah Gordon (S4, 11th place) were co-hosts.
TPTB have decided to mix things up a bit:
This year the show will get even more up-close and personal, and host JD Roberto will have the first full interview with the departing contestants of American Idol directly from the studios.
Roberto, who returns to host American Idol Extra for the second time, is joined by two new co-hosts, Constantine Maroulis and Gina Glocksen, who have experienced American Idol firsthand. Constantine was a finalist during the fourth season of American Idol and Gina made it to the final 12 during last year Idol season.
Congrats to Gina for scoring a post-idol gig. And, I’m counting on Constantine to bring the CHEESE. You know he will.
