AceShowbiz -“American Idol” has revealed the stars who are tapped to fill in for Katy Perry and Lionel Richie when they take on their coronation duties in England. ABC announced on Monday, May 1 that Alanis Morissette and Ed Sheeran will serve as guest judges on Sunday, May 7.
The two will join judge Luke Bryan in the upcoming episode. In the episode, Alanis is set to be pulling double duty as she will also be a mentor for the remaining contestants, who will take the stage to perform duets of Ed’s popular songs.
Not stopping there, Alanis and Ed will also perform in the episode. While Alanis will perform one of her classics, the English singer is set to belt out his new single “Boat” following the release of his latest album, “-” (pronounced as “Substract”).
Prior to this, Luke teased that people would be excited for the fill-ins for Katy and Lionel. “It’s big time. It’s big time,” the country star told ET’s Cassie DiLaura ahead of his set at Stagecoach Music Festival in Indio, California, on Saturday, April 29. “The people that we have filling in, contestants have used their songs many, many times. A lot more than mine!”
Earlier this year, it was revealed that King Charles tapped Katy and Lionel to be among the performers at his coronation concert on Sunday, May 7. Taking place one day after the coronation, the concert will be held in Windsor Castle.
Of the invite, Katy told ExtraTV, “It was very regal, it was like a cursive I have never seen. I loved it. It was so beautiful and it was so grateful to get the honor because actually I am an ambassador for the British Asian Trust, which primarily focuses on ending child trafficking, which is a huge issue of our time and it just aligned with all my values.”
“I’m also an ambassador for Unicef. And as a mother I know first-hand these innocent children need help, they need to be helped. So I’m just going there as an ambassador and they asked me to sing and it all aligned,” the “Roar” hitmaker added.
Charles’ concert, which will broadcast live on BBC, will also include soul pianist Alexis Ffrench and 29-year-old singer-songwriter Freya Ridings. Also performing at the concert is Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, who will duet with 57-year-old Welsh opera icon Sir Bryn Terfel, Take That, Paloma Faith, Olly Murs, Steve Winwood and Nicole Scherzinger.
