Idol Worship: Finale Promises Another All-star Lineup

Downtown LA's Nokia Theater has been buzzing as season 8's Top 11 rehearsed for the big finale on Wednesday night, and finalists Adam Lambert and Kris Allen greeted the press on Monday. They were joined by last year's American Idol David Cook, who did a run-through of "Permanent," his for-charity single which hits iTunes on May 20. Who else will take the Idol stage on results show night? Performances by Carrie Underwood, Black Eyed Peas, Jason Mraz, Queen Latifah, Keith Urban, Lionel Richie, Cyndi Lauper and Carlos Santana have been confirmed by various outlets, but there are plenty of rumors, too. Us Weekly reports that Kiss will be dueting with Lambert, which we hear is true. It would make sense since the band is back in the studio, and what would a Gene Simmons appearance be without product to hawk? There's also talk of Britney Spears (denied), David Bowie and the obligatory Michael Jackson rumor, which never pans out. What we do know is that there's sure to be some interesting pairings, including Keith with Kris, Cyndi with Allison Iraheta and Lionel Richie with Danny Gokey. And, of course, you'll see plenty of your Idol favorites from past seasons. We ran into Bo Bice outside the Kodak Theater where the TV Guide Network had set up its own Idol command center. The stage is set at last. Will it be lights, camera, Adam? We'll see soon enough...

Hi! I like your srticle and I would like very much to read some more information on this issue. Will you post some more?

Yeah David Cook did a cracking job in the final. we just got the finale down under and I can say with out a doubt the performances are light years ahead of ours, although not necessarily the singing but more the production. I guess the bigger budget would have something to do with that!

@ Stan Unfortunately for Michael Jackson though, although he is storming the charts, in generations to com he may be remembered for the wrong reasons.

Although I thought Adam's version of 'One' and 'Cryin'' were not as good as his previous performances, he is still miles and miles better than Kris. Danny could've been the more challenging competition. Thank God, next week is the finale.
