American Idol 2011 Top 2 Weekend Update

We’re down to the final days of American Idol 2011. All Lauren and Scotty have left to do is put on one last performance show and then sit back and wait for the results to roll in.

Keep in mind that this week will be shifted from its usual schedule to make way for the So You Think You Can Dance 2011 premiere on Thursday night. Instead of a performance show on Wednesday night we’ll get it a day early on Tuesday night when the teens take each other on at Nokia Theatre with just an hour show from 8-9PM ET/PT.

That night Scotty and Lauren will each perform three songs. One will be their favorite performance from earlier this season. Another will be a selection from the show’s creator, Simon Fuller. The last song will be what the performer hopes to record should he or she be crowned the American Idol 2011 winner.

Then on Wednesday night the big results will be revealed as part of a monster two-hour show starting at 8PM ET/PT including the return of the season’s Top 13 and a bunch of surprise performances and guests. I wonder if we’ll finally get that James Durbin and Steven Tyler performance. Either way it should be a great show.
