It has been announced that this week the Top 8 contestants will be mentored by Gwen Stefani and Tony Kanal from No Doubt. The contestants will be singing songs from the 80s. I think both of these mentors will be a great choice. No Doubt is signed to Interscope (Jimmy Iovine’s label) – so the corporate brand crossing love is in effect.
The thing that I love is this bringing us one step closer to the well rumored No Doubt reunion! What do you think, good choice?
Also on Idol this week are British boy band The Wanted, who will perform their hit “Glad You Came” on Thursday’s results show, and the world premiere of Jennifer Lopez’s new video for “Dance Again.”
American Idol airs on Fox Wednesday and Thursday nights.
