'American Idol' Finale Scoop: Fall Out Boy, Pitbull & NKOTB to Perform
Plus, Steven Tyler will perform with Jax & Jamie Foxx will hit the stage too; more details will be announced Wednesday.
On his radio show Tuesday (May 5), Ryan Seacrest announced details about the American Idol season 14 finale, which will mix a cross-section of pop, rock and boy-band nostalgia with an Oscar winner thrown in for good measure.
So far, the artists announced include Jamie Foxx, Fall Out Boy, Pitbull and NKOTB. Last week, Big Machine's newest artist Steven Tyler approached top four finalist Jax with an on-air proposal to sing together at the finale -- and she accepted.
“I was probably the biggest fangirl in that room, and surprisingly enough I ended up singing with him,” Jax told Billboard of her close encounter with the Aerosmith legend. “I couldn’t even make sentences or move.”
A spokesperson tells Billboard that more artists will be announced on Wednesday.
The American Idol two-night season finale airs May 12 and 13 on Fox.
