This week is going to be huge on American Idol. Huge huge stars coming in from all around the globe will be performing and hopefully huge amounts of money will be raised to help charities in both Africa and the United States wtih help from us viewers.
So here's what happens: To kick off the extravaganza, tonight the top six finalists will sing "life anthem" songs of compassion and hope, in keeping with the Idol Gives Back theme. After the show, viewers will vote for their favorite singers, as usual, and corporate sponsors will donate money to the charity. Ka Ching.
Then Wednesday night, the two-hour results show will feature live performances from the American Idol stage as well as Walt Disney Concert Hall, where Ellen DeGeneres will serve as host.
Viewers will be able to make their own donations via phone and the Internet and will also be treated to a two hour concert with some of the biggest names in showbiz.
