'American Idol' Finale: Chris Brown, Ricky Martin, The Jacksons Added to Lineup
FOX is gearing up for the Season 14 finale of American Idol and there's a laundry list of talent slated to perform. The cable network recently announced that Chris Brown, Ricky Martin and some members of the Jackson family will join Steven Tyler, Fall Out Boy and Vance Joy on the final episode. Contestants Jax, Clark Beckham, Rayvon Owen and Nick Fradiani will sing tonight, May 6, to see who makes it to the finale.
Michael McDonald, Echosmith, Nile Rodgers, Janelle Monáe, New Kids on the Block, Prince Royce, Pitbull and Jamie Foxx will also perform next week. Judges Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. will also perform together, Billboard notes. Idol will air Tuesday and Wednesday next week.
Beckham and Jax have been favorites on the show for awhile. Fradiani has gotten better over the past few episodes and Owen has been saved multiple times. Tyanna Jones, another big talent, was the last contestant cut from the show.
"I think Nick has a chance to be in the country format," mentor Scott Borchetta told Taste of Country recently. "His voice is one of those voices that could work in pop or country. So there's a chance that could happen. Should he win, it's going to be an interesting record to make because he has a little different idea of what will work in the mainstream,"
Tonight's episode will show the four remaining singers in their hometowns.
