And it will include the male artist featured above – the extremely talented American Idol Season 7 winner, David Cook. David, along with past contenders fourth season finalist Constantine Maroulis, fifth season finalists Chris Daughtry and Kellie Pickler, sixth season winner Jordin Sparks and tenth season finalist Haley Reinhart will be performing duets with Group 2 of the semi-finalists on Thursday, February 18th.
However, before they take to the stage with their illustrious partners, the Group 2 semi-finalists must sing a solo round on Wednesday, February 17th.
All performances and judges’ selections have been pre-taped and, therefore, pre-determined. It is kind of disappointing, I feel, and sort of takes the wind out of the sails for these Season 15 contenders. However, I could see where the public voting could be skewed if people voted for the semi-finalist duetting with their favorite past contender from the show.
At any rate, it will be terrific to see familiar faces on that TV screen once again.
Best of luck to the remaining singers! And, readers, who are you anxious to see once again? Can you predict the duet pairings? – although I know that most of the information has been leaked all over the blogosphere.
American Idol airs on Fox at 8:00 PM on Wednesday, February 17th and Thursday, February 18th.
