Will Judas Priest Perform On Tonight’s ‘American Idol’ Season Finale?
  |  @   |  

A close friend of mine called me up at work yesterday afternoon to say that she heard on the news that Judas Priest, one of my favorite bands ever, were going to be performing on the season finale of American Idol. I immediately began a frenzied Google search for any confirmation on this news, but all it yield were results for the video of contestant James Durbin singing the band’s popular tune, “You Got Another Thing Coming” from an episode in early March. Therefore, I assumed my friend must have just misunderstood what she heard on the news.

With Idol season finale airing tonight, now I’m starting to see rumors pop up online of Judas Priest’s possible appearance on the over 2-hour episode, which begins at 8pm on Fox. Word is that the band will perform with the 22-year-old Durbin, who was eliminated from Idol earlier this month.

Now, I don’t watch the show and I know very little about how it all works except for what my friends and family mention to me and write about on Facebook, but if Judas Priest is going to be on the show, then tonight will mark the first time I purposely watch American Ido. I’ll definitely be setting my DVR.

Priest appearing on the show would be a great move for them at this time. They recently made news earlier this year with their plans for a farewell tour, which was followed-up by guitarist and founding member K.K. Downing’s retirement from the band, and finally the band’s announcement that Richie Faulkner would be stepping in for the tour. For a band that’s supposedly retiring, they’ve certainly done their part to stay in the news.
