Kelly Clarkson is coming home!
KC is returning to American Idol next Thursday (April 14) to perform on the results show, FOX announced. The inaugural Idol champ will perform “Don’t You Wanna Stay,” her duet with country crooner Jason Aldean, who will also make an appearance on the show.
Pop goddess Rihanna will also be on hand to perform at next week’s results show, though FOX did not confirm what she’d be performing. It wouldn’t be a stretch to assume she could perform her ballad “California King Bed”; she recently debuted the track as a duet with Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles to positive feedback at the Academy of Country Music Awards last Sunday.
Kelly and Rihanna will be there to see the top 8 contestants cut down to the lucky 7.
