The Wanted to Perform on ‘Idol’ Next Week
"We are excited to announce we will be performing on American Idol on 5th of April!! #TheWantedOnIdol," the British boy band tweeted. Jay McGuiness followed the tweet with one of his own, writing, "I can safely say we wouldn't be there if it wasn't for our fans. #thankyoueveryone."
The pop stars, who are currently on the cover of Billboard magazine, will hit the 'Idol' stage on April 5, but there will be many other opportunities to see the boys on the small screen. The Wanted are taking America by storm, appearing on MTV's Spring Break the week of April 2, and performing on the 'Today' show on April 24, which is the same day that their self-titled EP drops.
The guys are also scheduled to appear on 'The View' on April 25 before performing at KIIS FM's annual Wango Tango festival on May 12. Over the summer, the five-piece will help ring in the 2012 Olympic Games with a performance at London's Hyde Park on July 26, the day before the opening ceremony. It looks like the guys have a lot to look forward to this year!
