Three Hour Marathon To Crown American Idol Winner
Set your DVR now so that you can fast forward all the add ons…Three Hour Marathon To Crown American Idol Winner.
With a guest list that is quite long, the producers created this first by not allowing the reigning winner a singing slot in the finale. ABC is aware of fans outrage over the issue.
Setting that aside, season 3 on ABC has been green-lighted but the panel has yet to be confirmed. Dollars is the issue.
In the meanwhile here is the list of guests
- Adam Lambert to perform his new single, “New Eyes,” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” with Dimitrius Graham
- Carrie Underwood to make a special appearance during her Cry Pretty Tour 360 to perform her new hit single, “Southbound,” live on the “Idol” stage
- Daddy Yankee and Katy Perry to perform “Con Calma”
- Dan + Shay to perform “All To Myself” and “Speechless” with Madison Vandenburg
- Jon Pardi to perform a medley of “Night Shift” and “Dirt On My Boots” with Laine Hardy
- Kane Brown to perform “Good As You” and “Lost in the Middle of Nowhere” with Alyssa Raghu
- Katy Perry to perform “Unconditionally” with Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon
- Kool & The Gang to perform a medley of “Hollywood Swinging,” “Ladies Night” and “Celebrate” with the Top 10
- Luke Bryan to perform “Knockin’ Boots” and “Every Breath You Take” with Laci Kaye Booth
- Lionel Richie to perform “Dancing on the Ceiling” with the Top 10
- Montell Jordan to perform “This Is How We Do It” with Margie Mays and Austin Michael
- Viral sensation Shayy returns to perform Andra Day’s “Rise Up”
- Weezer to perform a medley of “Africa,” “Take On Me” and “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” with Wade Cota and Walker Burroughs
The crowning moment will be preceded by special performances from music legends, including “Idol”‘s very own superstar judges, the return of fan-favorite contestants from the current season and a special visit by last season’s winner, Maddie Poppe. Poppe’s debut album, “Whirlwind,” drops on Friday, May 17.
Note no performance! Let the rage ensue!
The American Idol 3 hour finale airs Sunday, May 19 across all time zones (8:00–11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.
