'American Idol's' Stefano Langone, Songwriter Bonnie McKee (Katy Perry, Britney Spears) Guest on THR's 'Idol Hangover' This Friday
The second episode of THR's live talk show hosted by music editor Shirley Halperin and THR.com editor Joseph Kapsch will also feature "Idol" correspondent Didi Benami's special backstage interview with Season's 11 first eliminated contestant.
This week, American Idol Season 10 finalist Stefano Langone takes a seat on the "Idol Hangover" couch to talk about his upcoming projects, what he's been up to since last season and his thoughts on Season 11's new crop of contenders.
Idol viewers most fondly recall Stefano for his memorable covers of Ne-Yo, Boyz II Men, Bruno Mars and Stevie Wonder.
As THR reported in January, Langone was signed to a recording contract at Hollywood Records, label home to Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus and other Disney stars from past and present. "Idol Hangover's" intrepid hosts Shirley Halperin and Joseph Kapsch will be digging for the deets on what fans can expect from the singer's first solo effort.
Fans of Langone can tweet questions to @Idol_Worship #idolhangover now and during the show at 11 a.m. PST/2 p.m. EST.
Plus, Grammy-winning songwriter Bonnie McKee will stop in to break down this week's performances. McKee has most recently enjoyed monster success with hit international singles for Katy Perry ("Teenage Dream," "California Gurls," "Teenage Dream," "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" and "Part of Me"), Taio Cruz ("Dynamite") as well as Britney Spears' ("Hold It Against Me.")
THR's special "Idol" correspondent Didi Benami will also return to the show with exclusive highlights from her Thursday night interview backstage with Season 11's first eliminated contestant.
