American Idol has managed to march on despite moving everything from a studio to everyone’s homes. The season 18 finale is happening this Sunday, May 17, and the lineup of performances is still quite as strong as in previous editions of the show.
Judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan will all perform ‘We Are The World’ in unison with some Idol alumni. Jordin Sparks, Phillip Phillips, Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, Ruben Studdard, Alejandro Aranda, Gabby Barrett, Katharine McPhee, Kellie Pickler, and Laine Hardy will take part in this special performance.
Perry and Bryan will also perform songs of their own. Katy will debut her new single ‘Daises’ after its release this Friday, while the country crooner will perform ‘One Margarita.’
Rascal Flatts will also make an appearance with Doug Kiker to perform ‘Bless The Broken Road,’ Cynthia Erivo will sing a medley of Aretha Franklin songs, and Lauren Daigle will perform her hit ‘You Say.’
The current Idol finalists will also perform together during the broadcast.
Watch this Sunday, May 17 at 8/7c on ABC.
