Last week, on FOX‘s American Idol, the contestants took on “then and now” tunes as the show paid tribute to the late and great Dick Clark, and we were shocked when Colton Dixon was eliminated. This week, the remaining six finalists will take on tunes from Queen, and we’ll get a performance from one of last season’s contestants, as well as a super hot pop star. Who is it? Read on to find out and for a preview!
After Colton Dixon’s elimination last week on American Idol, Fox announced that this week we can expect to see:
“This week, on Wednesday, April 25 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top Six – Hollie Cavanagh, Skylar Laine, Joshua Ledet, Phillip Phillips, Jessica Sanchez and Elise Testone – return to the IDOL stage to sing for America’s votes on a Queen-themed performance show. The finalists also will get to perform a group medley with Brian May and Roger Taylor, original members of the legendary rock group Queen.
Tune in the following night, Thursday, April 26 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), to the live results show to find out which Top Six finalist is sent home. In addition, Katy Perry will perform her newest single, Part of Me; the official touring Queen tribute, The Queen Extravaganza, will perform their classic smash hit Somebody To Love; and AMERICAN IDOL Season 10 finalist Stefano Langone will perform his new single, I’m On A Roll.”
