Idol Bits and Pieces – Dolly Parton and Her Songs Next Week, Plus the Clark Brothers!

Top 9 next week  features Dolly Parton and her songs, according to FOX.    The kids will be performing only Dolly Parton songs, and I’m glad.   They’ll have an awesome pool of  songs to choose from, rather than the usual ho-hum.

Totally psyched! The Clark Brothers  are the musical guests for next week’s Top 9 Results Show.   They were the winners of  the Next Great American Band. If you guys haven’t heard them yet, you are in for a treat. These boys are fierce. The brothers album, Walk This Way, drops in June.

American Idol Extra features special performances by Ruben Studdard and Haley Scarnato.   This week’s episode premiers tonight on the Fox Reality Channel at 7 pm.   I’ll have the highlights later this evening.

Here’s the latest Idol Gives Back update.   Celebrities slated to appear so far:

Robin Williams, Celine Dion, Forest Whitaker, Billy Crystal, Dane Cook, Kiefer Sutherland, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Jennifer Connolly, Elliott Yamin, Fantasia and Amy Adams join previously announced international talent and sports figures Bono, Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey, Eli Manning, Peyton Manning, Fergie, Chris Daughtry, Carrie Underwood, Annie Lennox, John Legend, Snoop Dogg, Maroon 5, Heart and Gloria Estefan.

Tickets are on sale to the general public. The event will tape at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday, April 6. Check out this link for more information.
