... George Michael!
That's right. E! Online got the inside scoop that the former Wham! frontman will be the guest performer of tonight's huge American Idol season finale. Earlier in the week, Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe was keeping mum on who the big name was, only saying that the “biggest star in the world” was coming to Idol.
The timing is perfect for GM, who is about set sail on a brand new tour on June17, to promote his new two-disc CD set, Twenty-Five.
I loved me some George Michael back in the day -- I though I was so naughty for knowing all the words to "I Want Your Sex." But is George really the "biggest star in the world"? I also heard a rumor that The Jonas Brothers (squeal!) were going to be on. Maybe that's who Nigel was talking about.
Anyway, did you watch Idol last night? My boy, David Cook, was robbed. The judges were hard on him (and he was phenom!) and super-easy on the adolescent David Archuleta. Though I know in my brain that it would be so much better for DC to lose (see Chris Daughtry), I'm still going to be utterly crushed when they announce DA's name tonight as the winner.
