Two Shows Worth Tuning Into This Weekend

Written by Chief Editor.

The journey to find the next superstar continues as the remaining five American Idol hopefuls attempt to win votes and land themselves a spot in the coveted season finale.

On this Sunday’s episode, each contestant will perform three numbers: a pick from in-house mentor Bobby Bones; a song dedicated to their heroes in honour of Mother’s Day; and a selection from Elton’s world-renowned catalog.

To help prepare for this week’s theme, contestants will be the first to watch the anticipated feature film Rocketman.

American Idol airs at 8 p.m. ET on the ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

A day earlier, Elton will be talking with Rocketman's star, Taron Egerton, on his Rocket Hour radio show. It's on Beats 1 at 9 a.m. in California; noon in New York; and 5 p.m. in the UK.
