“Hollywood, here we come” is what many former American Idols are saying this week. Many of the Idols have flown in from all over to participate in the final week of the popular show, American Idol.
Nigel Lythgoe will be the executive producer of the farewell show this week. In a press conference, he said that the farewell episode will be memorable. He said:
It’s going to be a rather spectacular show… It’s about the American idols, about reminding people of 15 seasons.
All the former winners will be on hand and many past contestants too.
According to the Chicago-Sun Times:
…Clarkson, the inaugural “Idol,” is set to perform, as are Underwood and the other winners including Ruben Studdard, Fantasia, Jordin Sparks and Scotty McCreery. Among the many contestants taking part: Hudson, Clay Aiken, Chris Daughtry, Katharine McPhee, Kellie Pickler, Elliott Yamin and LaToya London…
…Lythgoe downplays the importance of celebrities as part of the finale — or the contest itself. It isn’t about big stars coming on and singing their record. ‘American Idol’ was never about that. It was about the young stars we created…
Clay Aiken has not publicly said anything about his participation in the show, however, he did fly into Los Angeles over the week-end. Personally, I think it would be fun if he and Ruben had a short duet together. When you say American Idol, Ruben and Clay always gets mentioned.
Before the 2 day finale on Wednesday and Thursday, Fox is broadcasting “American Idol: American Dream.” It is a 90-minute special airing at 8 p.m. Tuesday. According to the Sun-Times, host Ryan Seacrest, original judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson and former contestants will be among those reminiscing and sharing insider tidbits.
