  • May 23 FINALE

There is also going to be a special “surprise” show mid-season.   TPTB are not giving up any details, but there is much speculation  around the net about what it could be.   What are your thoughts?

Lastly, word is that the winner, Leona Lewis, of Simon Cowel’s British reality show X-factor will be appearing at some point on American Idol.   I dunno, I think the producers will have their hands full promoting the albums of the 4 Season 5 alums 19R signed last year.    Leona currently has a  hit in  the UK with Kelly Clarkson’s coronation single, “A Moment Like This”.
