Access Hollywood has learned from reliable sources that Jennifer Lopez is scheduled to perform on “American Idol” on April 11.
J. Lo joins a long line of big-time acts to take the “Idol” stage over the years, including Prince, Mary J. Blige, Rascal Flatts, Shakira and more.
Access also has heard very strong rumors that Gwen Stefani is slated to perform on “Idol” on March 28.
FOX has announced season 3 winner Fantasia will perform on the show this Thursday and reportedly will announce that she’ll be joining the cast of Oprah Winfrey’s “The Color Purple” on Broadway.
This year’s “Idol” competition is now down to the final 24, with the top 12 men performing on Tuesday night, followed by the final 12 ladies on Wednesday.
Earlier this month, Michael Jackson shot down rumors that he would perform on the “Idol” stage this year.
“There is absolutely no truth to the rumor that Michael Jackson is going to appear on ‘American Idol,’” Jackson’s rep Raymone Bain told Access. “He has signed no agreements with anyone. Robin Leach’s story is inaccurate.”
