American Idol 2016 Finale Spoilers: All-Star David Bowie Tribute Planned
The American Idol 2016 finale is just a few days away, and we’re getting more details on what we can expect from the hotly-anticipated Idol series finale!
American Idol 2015 winner Nick Fradiani revealed, in an interview with Variety on the red carpet of the iHeartRadio Music Awards last night, that an all-star David Bowie tribute is planned. But there’s a twist: the tribute will feature past male Idol winners! Nick will be joined onstage by David Cook, Kris Allen, Lee DeWyze and Phillip Phillips for the Bowie tribute at the season finale. Naturally, it’s somewhat surprising to hear that Phillip will be at the finale, since he recently sued 19 Entertainment to get out of his contract, a lawsuit which was countered by Idol producers against Phillip’s new manager. I don’t know how they negotiated it, or what each side had to do to make it happen, but I’m stoked that it’s happening. But what does Nick have to say about working with the other Idols? You can watch the full video below:
