Keith Urban and Mariah Carey Set to Pretape American Idol Finale Performances

American Idol judges, Keith Urban and Mariah Carey, will be pre-taping performances for this week’s Idol finale.

Keith is pre-taping on Tuesday (Most likely he will perform the new single he’s been teasing, scheduled to be released this week.) Mariah is set to pre-tape a medley of her biggest hits on Wednesday.

This, according to an email from the company that handles seating for television audiences.

The American Idol finale is set for Thursday May 16 at The Nokia in Los Angeles. Keith and Mariah will, of course, be pre-taping there.

Ex-judge, Jennifer Lopez, is also set to perform. Adam Lambert will perform a duet with 3rd place finisher, Angie Miller. The Band Perry will sing with 5th placer, Janelle Arthur and Frankie Valli will perform with the Top 10 boys.

(Thanks, @blkeener!)
