Half of No Doubt will appear on American Idol‘s next week as singer Gwen Stefani and bassist Tony Kanal will mentor the remaining finalists, The theme: ’80s night, which is a perfect fit for the Orange County-bred band, who were not only teenagers during the decade but had a Top 10 single in 2003 with a cover of Talk Talk‘s 1985 hit, “It’s My Life.”
No Doubt is signed to Interscope, the label headed by Idol perma-mentor Jimmy Iovine. Stefani has appeared on Idol before, perhaps most memorably styling the season 10 contestants last year in her own L.A.M.B. line.
Tune in to Fox on Wednesday to see how the Top 8 fare.
