Kristin Chenoweth: Donna Summer Tribute for 'Idol' Finale!

Kristin Chenoweth will be making an appearance on the American Idol finale tomorrow night (May 23) to perform a tribute to the late Donna Summer with finalist Jessica Sanchez, sources confirm to JustJared.com!

The GCB actress has previously appeared as a guest judge on the competition show during the ninth season’s audition rounds.

“I just had a great experience. I will tell everyone about it tomorrow night!” Kristin tweeted to her fans after taping the performance this evening.

Kristin has been performing Donna‘s song “Enough is Enough” on her current concert tour, which Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe happened to attend in Los Angeles last week.

Gloria Gaynor, Thelma Houston, Gladys Knight, Nelly Furtado, Sheila E., Jennifer Holliday, and the season 11 girls will all be a part of the tribute, according to THR.

FYI: Kristin is inviting her fans to join her at her New York City concert after-party on June 2 to help raise money for her charity Maddie’s Corner. For more information on how to buy tickets for the exclusive event, visit MaddiesCorner.org!

Just made the trip to Denver last Friday to see her in concert with my mom. It was a fun show. She has so much talent.

Super excited! I’ve loved Kristin since YAGMCB and seen her accept a Tony for that role in YAGMCB. And I’m also rooting for Jessica Sanchez! So this is one of the highlights of the evening for me. Also looking forward to the Jennifer and Jessica duet!

Love Kristen and to correct you JJ the full title of that song is No More Tears Enough Is Enough and it was a duet with Barbara Streisand released in early 1980

Actually, I have a secret for you. I was there live at the Nokia Theatre last night on 5/22, and Kristen Chenoweth was there to perform with Jessica, because Kristen couldn’t make it tomorrow. Pay close attention to the audience. They are wearing the same clothes as 5/22′s show. I hope I was allowed to say this!

I’m sure they won’t cut it short like the horrible Billboard Awards did. Will be looking forward to the tribute, and Jessica’s big win tonight!!!

@TONY:

the answer : out of their *******.

Well I saw it taped on Tuesday but I guess they couldn’t air it on Wednesday, to be honest it was kind of awful.

Wow. Just wow. Now I know something about the show. They probably cut it because people blabbed about it to the media after watching it live.

@Tim:

THEY HAD TO MAKE TIME FOR J-LO TO RUN HER FAST ASS AROUND THE STAGE IN MC HAMMERS OLD PAJAMAS . AND LETS NOT FORGET THE OVER REHEARSED MARRIAGE PROPOSAL FROM PAST IDOL FLOPS — YEAH, THATS MORE IMORTANT THAN RESPECT TO DONNA SUMMER… SO SAD.
