Today is the beginning of a 3-day celebration of the popular TV show, American Idol. It is also the beginning of the end of 15 seasons of American Idol.
On Monday, rumors were filling the pages of social media. Former Idols were tweeting and periscoping. They were in the studio, getting ready for the big celebration.
With so many Idols participating in the finale, it will be hard to fit them all in. I know that there will be lots of groups and some performers will be featured more than others.
Clay Aiken is keeping quiet about his appearance on the show. We know he was in the studio Monday and hopefully we will hear from him about his American Idol performances …”soon”.

The article talks about the visit to Billboard by Clay, Ruben, Kimberley, Rickey, Josh, and Carmen. Fred even remembers the questions they asked.
The article is very interesting. You can read it at BRONSON.
