Carrie Underwood Will Mentor Next Week’s ‘American Idol’
The theme weeks continue on American Idol this Sunday when the show brings none other than Carrie Underwood. After all, she is one of American Idol‘s biggest success stories. She will mentor the final 5 singers on the show and we’ll be treated to a special Carrie Underwood themed evening of songs in live from Nashville, TN. It’s gonna be good, y’all.
You’l recall that Carrie won the fourth season of American Idol back in the Simon Cowell days. She went on to win 7 Grammys and a ton of accolades. Clearly the show wants to remind the fans that they were once in the star-making business and hope to be again. Carrie is also a good choice for mentor because she’s been exactly where these contestants are now and she knows the special kind of pressure they are under. It should be amazing.
The idea of being in Nashville with a country superstar makes me even more certain that, barring any disasters, Gabby Barrett is going to shine and so is Caleb Lee Hutchinson. Final 3 material? Could very well be.
