American Idol has announced that the stage is set for performances this week. The show welcomes to their stage, Rihanna & Kelly Clarkson, the first winner of American Idol.Both will be on-stage this Thursday as the show continues to narrow it down to the next American Idol. What can we expect from the two, it's anyone's guess. But if Rihanna's performance at the NBA All-Star games is any indication, we should all be in for a treat.

This actually has me interested in watching the show. I gave up on the competition after several Louisiana contests were sent packing, but now this Thursday I may just have to take a sneak peek of the performances.
