This weekend, the victims of this year’s most controversial Idol eliminations are going to be united on stage.
It has just been announced that Carly Smithson and Michael Johns, who both got the boot earlier than many AI fans expected, are going to duet on the Ellen DeGeneres show.
There was uproar when Michael, 29, who had been one of the stand-out performers all season, was voted into eighth place on April 10th.
And last week there were rumblings that Carly, 24, got a raw deal when she left the competition with famously forgetful Brooke White and Bottom Three resident Syesha Mercado still in the running.
No word yet on what they’ll sing yet (Ain’t That A Kick In The Head, perhaps?), but the show is being taped in Chicago tomorrow and will air on May 6th episode of Ellen.
