The star-studded lineup for the American Idol finale was revealed on Twitter Tuesday night (May 15) and the ABC reboot of the talent show is bringing some heat for its big finish. “Ya’ll know this is going to be a good time!!” country star Darius Rucker tweeted in revealing the star-packed lineup for the showdown; the live two-night finale begins on Sunday (May 20). The lineup includes performances by judges Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan to kick off the night, with Katy Perry hinting that she might have something special in the works as well.

Other special guests include: Gary Clark Jr., Nick Jonas and Mustard, Bebe Rexha, Patti LaBelle, Yolanda Adams and Kermit The Frog. While the last performer may raise some eyebrows, it’s clear that the 2-part season finale will be an ambitious conclusion to a competition that has kept fans on their toes. Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Maddie Poppe and Gabby Barrett will go head to head on Monday, and it is clear from Rucker’s tweet that it’ll be a night to remember.
