Idol Headlines for 11/28/13

Happy Thanksgiving Americans! Eat lots of Turkey (or veggies if you’re veg!) and have fun.

Kellie Pickler appears on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Carrie Underwood and the Von Trapp children were scheduled, but it looks like their performance was cancelled to keep everyone healthy for next week’s live performance.

However, Carrie Underwood is still set for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon tonight on NBC at 11:35/10:35c

Tonight, two contestants leave the X Factor. Michael Buble and Demi Lovato perform. 8/7c pm FOX. Puppets take over Glee in “Puppet Master” at 9/8c pm FOX
