2018 Billboard Music Awards Battle ‘American Idol’ Finale
Oh the agony of the choice this Sunday evening (May 20). On one hand, Kelly Clarkson will be hosting the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on NBC, a multi-genre extravaganza featuring performances from a variety of artists including Maren Morris with Zedd and Grey. But on the other hand, the top three from American Idol will be competing in the first night of the two-part final on ABC.
Both shows start at 8PM ET. What's a music lover to do? Well, there's always the channel changer. But for those who are planning to stick to one broadcast, there's no shortage of temptations out there luring viewers to one side or the other.
Clarkson teased viewers with a beautiful red-carpet shot of herself in a striking gown for her hosting duties; meanwhile, AI mentor Bobby Bones posted his own photo tempting everyone to tune in to see how Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Gabby Barrett, and Maddie Poppe fare down to the wire. AI has promised a star-studded lineup for its two-night finale, with guests including Darius Rucker, Gary Clark Jr., Nick Jonas and Mustard, Bebe Rexha, Patti LaBelle, Yolanda Adams ... and Kermit the Frog. Yes, really!
It's definitely a great night for musical talent. It's also definitely frustrating both of these fantastic shows are on at the same time! Which show will you be tuning in to?
