The end is almost here. American Idol bids adieu in just a couple of weeks. Hopefully, the network plans to send the show off in style. After all, the singing competition did chance the face of television.
FOX begins the three-night extravaganza with a 90-minute retrospective titled American Idol: American Dream on Tuesday, April 5. It’ll feature Ryan Seacrest, judges including Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and more, along with alums walking down memory lane to share their personal memories and tell never-before revealed stories.
The two-night finale then starts on April 6 with the show crowning its final Idol on April 7 live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. The big Thursday show will feature group and solo performances from a whackload of former contestants including Kelly Clarkson, Daughtry, Carrie Underwood and Fantasia.
I’m personally looking forward to seeing LaToya London, Kimberley Locke, Tamyra Gray and Jessica Sanchez the most. They even have Sanjaya on deck. Sadly, Jennifer Hudson isn’t included in the list. What’s up with that? Check out the lineup below.
“In addition to superstars Clarkson and Underwood, Thursday’s final episode will have all-star performances by former IDOLs, including Ruben Studdard, Fantasia, Taylor Hicks, Jordin Sparks, David Cook, Kris Allen, Lee DeWyze, Scotty McCreery, Candice Glover, Caleb Johnson, Nick Fradiani, Ace Young, Allison Iraheta, Amber Holcomb, Blake Lewis, Bo Bice, Brandon Rogers, Bucky Covington, Carly Smithson, Casey James, Chris Daughtry, Clark Beckham, Clay Aiken, Colton Dixon, Constantine Maroulis, Danny Gokey, Diana DeGarmo, Elliott Yamin, George Huff, James Durbin, Jessica Sanchez, Josh Gracin, Joshua Ledet, Justin Guarini, Katharine McPhee, Kellie Pickler, Kimberley Locke, Kree Harrison, LaToya London, Lauren Alaina, Melinda Doolittle, Pia Toscano, Sanjaya, Skylar Laine, Tamyra Gray and more, before host Ryan Seacrest announces the results of America’s votes and the final IDOL is crowned.” via FOX
