Idol Castoffs to Appear on the Late Show with David Letterman

Whoo hoo! I love me some David Letterman, so this next item is awesome news!


NEW YORK, March 19 (UPI) — Contestants voted off “American Idol” each week will make their first late-night talk show appearances on “Late Show with David Letterman, ” CBS said.

The castoffs are to appear every Monday, beginning March 22 with recently eliminated contestant Lacey Brown.

The winner of this season’s competition will also perform on “Late Show” the Monday after he or she earns the title, the network said.

Letterman hasn’t had Idol castoffs on his show since Season 3. Back then, the kids hung out at the Rupert Gee Deli next door, as Letterman interviewed them via remote camera.

I wasn’t surprised when the Idols stopped appearing the following year. Heh.
