We’re less than two months from the premiere of Idol 2012 but filming for the new season continues to press on. The callbacks have all been completed which means all those golden ticket holders are about to head to Hollywood.
Starting December 11th the dozens (hundreds even?) of American Idol hopefuls will head west and meet in Hollywood for their chance to wow the judges and press on to the next stage. Those singers who have what it takes will then head to Las Vegas to participate in yet another round of eliminations.
Last year on American Idol the lucky singers who made it through Hollywood performed songs from The Beatles during their Vegas stint. This year they’ll be performing Michael Jackson songs on the Cirque Du Soleil stage. Check out the preview below from Cirque Du Soleil of The Immortal World Tour.

AGAIN michael jackson!!!!!!!!! i know he’s great but so are a dozen other artists!! what about motown?? what about good ol’ fashioned rock and roll?? what about something difficult like adele or “cara mia” from jay and the americans??
I imagine it has more to do w/ Cirque Du Soleil than Idol producers selecting MJ. If CDS was covering Adele, then that would have been the theme. It’s just a marketing cross promotion event.
I don’t know about the Idol hopefuls singing Michael Jackson (the X-Factor was a bust if you ask me) but I am looking forward to seeing this Cirque Du Soleil show next month….
