Will the King of Pop be honored in song during next week’s American Idol season 14 finale?
All signs are pointing in that direction, as the Fox singing competition announced Wednesday (May 6) that the Jacksons will be joining in next week’s final episode airing on May 13.
Joining Michael’s family for the festivities are Chris Brown, Echosmith, Fall Out Boy, Vance Joy, Ricky Martin, Michael McDonald, Janelle Monáe, Nile Rodgers and Prince Royce, in addition to previously announced performers New Kids on the Block, Pitbull, Jamie Foxx and Steven Tyler, who is will hit the stage with top four finalist, Jax.
In addition to the announced talent, there will be performances by judges Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr., who jammed together on the Fleetwood Mac classic “Go Your Own Way” on last year’s season finale.
Next Tuesday’s performance show will be the final battle between the remaining two singers after one is eliminated from the competition.
The two-part grand finale will air live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood next Tuesday and Wednesday on Fox.
