Last night on American Idol on FOX we said goodbye to Jacob Lusk as his now and then performance did not fare as well as he had hoped. Next week, the remaining four finalists will hit the stage again with songs from Leiber and Stoller, and we’ll get to see a performance by season six winner Jordin Sparks. Keep reading for all the details!
American Idol’s top four will take the stage again next week and according to a Fox press release on Wednesday, May 11 (8:00-9:30 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top 4 – Lauren Alaina, James Durbin, Scotty McCreery and Haley Reinhart – return to the IDOL stage to perform the songs of renowned American songwriting and producing duo Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. Leiber and Stoller are award winning American songwriters and record producers known for such hits as Elvis Presley’s Love Me,” “Loving You,” “Don’t,” “Jailhouse Rock,” and “King Creole,” just to name a few. The duo were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1985 and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.
