'American Idol' continued tonight (Jan. 16), and one of the standout performances was from Rachel Rolleri, a 17-year-old high school student who is a huge Keith Urban fan.
For her performance, she sang 'Stay' by Sugarland, accompanying herself on guitar.
Just as we reported last week, Rihanna shared the 2011 ACM Award stage with Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles. But, instead of performing one of Sugarland's genre-bending hits, the duo delivered a rendition of Rihanna's slower ballad, 'California King Bed' from her platinum album ‘Loud.'
PopCrush is giving away a trip to see pop-country duo Sugarland perform live at their concert in Billings, Mont. on June 6, 2011. All you have to do to meet Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush in person is email us a link to a video of you and one other person explaining (under two minutes) why you are 'Stuck Like Glue' to each other...
Tonight's elimination episode of 'American Idol' featured many surprises, including an unannounced appearance by Stevie Wonder. But somehow, country duo Sugarland's previously scheduled 'Idol' debut still managed to make a big impression, as they performed on the show's vaunted stage for the very first time.
Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Martina McBride and ... Rihanna?
The R&B superstar is the most surprising name on the guest list for the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 3, where she'll perform her song 'California King Bed' with Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles, according to RyanSeacrest.com.
