American Idol is going to have its hands all over the CMA Awards tonight on ABC, but you wouldn’t know that by watching their promo video below.
The original Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson is up for two nominations, “single of the year” and “musical event of the year.” Then you’ve got Carrie Underwood hosting alongside Brad Paisley so you can rest assured she’ll be performing during the night. She’s not the only Idol winner doing that though.
Scotty McCreery, last season’s winner, will take to the stage for a performance of “Walk in the Country” as we reported earlier last week. Considering that’s a Keith Urban original and Scotty will be touring with Brad Paisley, it seems like maybe one of those two could make a surprise appearance for that. We shall see.
While another two Idol alumni won’t be performing, they will be presenting. Lauren Alaina and Kellie Pickler will be on hand for an appearance as well.
It’ll be a busy night tonight for American Idol at the CMA Awards!
