This Week’s Idol Appearances

ETA:  By popular demand (chat peeps!) watch Britney Spears sleep-walk through her VMA performance…

I thought I’d devote a post to upcoming Idol appearances that I lovingly gather in one place right here.   If I’ve missed something, shoot me an email at  

  • The MTV Video Music Awards are on  TONIGHT, and I don’t know about you, but I’m tuning in for the Brit-brit crash-and-burn that promises to open the show.   Heh.    Idols will be there, supporting the Britney side show.  Jennifer Hudson presents an award,  while both  Daughtry and Carrie Underwood are  nominated for awards.   Tune in tonight at 9 pm EDT on MTV.
  • Monday, Kimberley Locke performs at the 16th Annual Ella Awards honoring Gladys Knight in Beverly Hills.
  • Chris Daughtry and his band Daughtry have some TV appearances this week: On Wednesday they appear on the CBS Early Show and then later that night on the Late Show with David Letterman. On Thursday, they appear on Live with Regis and Kelly.   Get your DVRs ready!
  • Opening Thursday: Jon Peter Lewis plays Jesus in the Redlands Civic Light Opera production of the musical “Godspell”.   (The  production  answers the hypothetical question: What if Jesus were a Hobbit? Heh.)
  • Friday,   Diana DeGarmo appears at the Otis Redding Tribute in Macon, GA 8 pm.
  • Saturday, Kimberley Locke appears at the Savannah Pride celebration in Savannah, GA.   George Huff appears at the Brilliant Embers Fall 2007 Concert in Anaheim, CA. 5:30 pm.   (that’s quite the juxtaposition…) Elliott Yamin appears in London, UK on behalf of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Kelly Clarkson appears on a repeat of the CMT special CMT Crossroads: Kelly Clarkson and Reba McEntire. 3 pm and 11 pm.   Finally, Taylor Hicks performs during halftime with the Auburn University Marching band at the Auburn-Miss football game at Auburn University. Taylor attended Auburn before he quit to pursue a music career full time.
