Daughtry, No Doubt coming to 'American Idol'
Slash will mentor the 'Idol' Final Four for Rock Week
As Simon Cowell announced at the conclusion of Wednesday (April 29) night's "American Idol," next week's theme is Rock. The show has lined up some appropriate guests to match.
In addition to guitar legend Slash, who will serve as mentor to Adam Lambert, Danny Gokey, Allison Iraheta and Kris Allen, next Wednesday (May 6) will feature the return of the most successful "American Idol" rocker to date.
Daughtry will take the stage to perform "No Surprise," the first single off their album. Chris Daughtry was the fourth place finisher on the fifth season of "American Idol." The self-titled debut by his self-titled band went quadruple-platinum and was nominated for multiple Grammys.
Probably neck-and-neck with Jennifer Hudson for the title of most successful "Idol" contestant not to make the show's finals (far ahead of her in album sales, far behind her in Oscars), Daughtry's single "Home" was the elimination song for Season Six.
In addition to Daughtry, the Wednesday episode will also include a performance by No Doubt, who will be reuniting for a summer tour, prepping for the 2010 release of their next album.
No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani made multiple "American Idol" appearances in Season Six.
This Wednesday's "American Idol" saw the FOX series narrow its field to four with the elimination of Matt Giraud.
Taylor Hicks, who beat Daughtry for the Season Five "Idol" crown, performed along with Natalie Cole and Jamie Foxx.
