As everyone knows, American Idol is making a return this year on ABC! Sugarland, Scotty McCreery, and Cam will be featured on the show.
Sugarland and Cam will each be performing with the two finalists from the Top 24, reports Variety. American Idol recruited some serious talent for the 16th season. Other acts include Aloe Blacc, Colbie Callait, Luis Fonsi, Andy Grammer, and Bebe Rexha to name a few.
Scotty McCreery, who won in season 10, is returning to the show to serve as a mentor. He told Taste of Country:
“It’s exciting. I’ve already gone out to L.A. and filmed a mentor session with some of the contestants. The contestants were cool, great voices, and seem like they have great heads on their shoulders. It should be a good year.”
“I don’t really like it, honestly. I feel like that was a big part of Idol. It was so fun that you’d see awesome singers and folks who just … weren’t. They were great TV and they were awesome. I wish they’d keep those in there.”
