Kelly Clarkson + Bruno Mars to Perform on ‘X Factor’
On Wednesday, Nov. 23, the 'X Factor' results show will see the OG 'American Idol' Kelly Clarkson performing the title track from her fifth album 'Stronger,' titled 'What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger).' Kelly, Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell are reuniting, so to speak. That's what we call coming full circle, since Clarkson snagged the first 'Idol' crown back in 2002.
Bruno Mars will also be on hand to rip through his emotional new smash hit 'It Will Rain,' which is featured on the latest 'Twilight' soundtrack.
Keep in mind that due to the holiday, the performance episode, which will center on a "Giving Thanks" theme, will air a day earlier than usual, on Tuesday, Nov. 22. That means the elimination episode will also air a day early, on Wednesday, Nov. 23. So you will still get your double dose of the show this week. As if 'X Factor' would stop for Thanksgiving!
Zap2It reports that not one but two acts will be sent home on Wednesday, shrinking the Top 9 to a Top 7. Those two eliminated acts will likely have their Thanksgiving holidays ruined. We're here to remind them in advance they should be giving thanks that they got that far.
Again, we're prognosticating based on this news. Will Abdul be eliminated as a judge if her last-group-standing Lakoda Rayne gets the boot? Cowell and L.A. Reid are operating at three acts a piece. Will they see their teams shrink? It's getting good on 'X Factor' as the herds thins.
