‘American Idol’ Favorite Shows Off His New Teeth In Recent Special


Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus outbreak, the American Idol season is currently on hold. The live shows were supposed to start last week, but obviously have to be postponed. Everyone is currently staying at home to stop the spread of the virus.

However, American Idol was able to host a two-hour special in the place of what would have been the beginning of the live shows. It was called American Idol: This Is Me. It re-introduced this season’s semifinalists. The special shared recaps, unseen performances, and caught up with some past contestants.
