Last week, American Idol raised money for charity through Idol Gives Back and shocked America by eliminating Michael Johns from the competition. This week, the remaining 7 American Idol finalists will perform songs by Mariah Carey. For the record, if Michael Johns had made it through, then he revealed that he would have performed a blues soul version of Carey’s “Vision Of Love.”
On Tuesday, April 15 from 8 PM to 9 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed, Brooke White, Carly Smithson, David Archuleta, David Cook, Jason Castro, Kristy Lee Cook and Syesha Mercado will perform Mariah Carey songs.
On Wednesday, April 16 from 9 PM to 10 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed, one of the final 7 American Idol finalists will be eliminated on the American Idol results show. Also, Mariah Carey will give a live performance.
Mariah Carey’s new album “E=MC” is being released in stores on April 15. This is the eleventh album of Mariah Carey’s career, and “Touch My Body,” the first single from the album, is already a top 10 radio hit.
