AMERICAN IDOL finalists Adam Lambert and Kris Allen will be in prestigious company on stage this week when the hottest lineup ever to appear on an AMERICAN IDOL finale will perform during the live two-hour special, this Thursday, May 21 at 10.00am AEST on FOX8.
Broadcast straight from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles LIVE and DIRECT off the satellite, the two-hour finale will feature the biggest names in music today with Keith Urban, the Black-Eyed Peas, Queen Latifah, Cyndi Lauper, Carlos Santana, Lionel Richie and last year’s AMERICAN IDOL winner David Cook, all confirmed to take the IDOL stage on Thursday.
Keith Urban said in a statement: “I think this year in particular has been one of the best for American Idol.”
“There are – and were – some truly gifted vocalists. The Rat Pack episode was the best, across-the-board night of singing that I’ve ever seen on television. I guess what I love most about the show is watching the musical growth; to see them use the critique given and come back the next week and blow you away. That’s the magic of Idol.”
The finale episode will follow hot on the heels of the final one-hour performance show tomorrow night where Adam and Kris will have one last singing showdown to determine who will be the winner of AMERICAN IDOL for Season Eight.
Join host Ryan Seacrest and judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi tomorrow night as Adam and Kris battle it out for the last time, before they face their fate in the finale on Thursday – and one of them is crowned the AMERICAN IDOL for 2009.
