Last week on FOX‘s American Idol the top 11 performed Elton John tunes and after Thia Megia and Naima Adedapo were sent home, we will see the remaining nine contestants perform songs from the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. Keep reading for more details!
In a press release yesterday, Fox announced that on Wednesday, April 6 (8:00-9:30 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top 9 finalists – Casey Abrams, Lauren Alaina, James Durbin, Stefano Langone, Jacob Lusk, Scotty McCreery, Paul McDonald, Haley Reinhart and Pia Toscano – return to the IDOL stage to perform songs from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The finalists will be accompanied by legendary rock guitarist Jeff Beck, who will be performing with Ray Chew and the American Idol band.
Tune in the following night, Thursday, April 7 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), to the live results show to find out who receives enough votes to stay in the competition and who is sent home. In addition, Season Four IDOL finalist and Tony Award nominee Constantine Maroulis will return to the IDOL stage to perform.
