The Idol folks are wisely bringing back former Idols to perform on the big stage during the Results show this season. This Wednesday’s Top 11 Results Show will feature Kellie Pickler. Next week for the Top 10, Season 2’s Kimberley Locke returns to perform her new single “Fall”.
Check your DVRs! The big Idol Gives Back special on Wednesday April 9th, will run for 2 1/2 hours and will begin 30 minutes before prime-time, at 7:30 ET. Better to disrupt Simpson’s reruns than the FOX affiliates newscasts at 10 pm, I suppose.
Speaking of Idol Gives Back, The Clark Brothers, the winners of last Fall’s Next Great American Band, are scheduled to perform for the big fundraiser. What? You say you didn’t watch Next Great American Band? You and 99.9% of the population. The better the surprise will be, then. The Clark Brothers are incredible singer/musicians. I’m happy that they will finally be exposed to a big audience. Folks will be blown away.
I’ve been hearing that Austin Clark will be on hand for this week’s performance show. He’ll be playing dobro for one of the contestants. Watch for that!
ETA: Tonight’s show is another 2-hour extravaganza. Next week, the performance show cuts back to 90 minutes.
