Idol's White Guys With Guitars Perform David Bowie Tribute!

Kris Allen hits the stage for a performance during the finale of American Idol on Thursday night (April 7) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

The 30-year-old season eight winner was joined for a David Bowie tribute performance by four other winners – season 14′s Nick Fradiani, season 11′s Phillip Phillips, season 7′s David Cook, and season 9′s Lee DeWyze.

The five guys are all in that “white guy with guitar” category and producer Nigel Lythgoe opened up to THR about the performance.

“I promise you, if they went out on tour, and each did 20 minutes in their own right and 20 minutes together, this is a sell-out tour, they’re so good together. The ‘WGWG’ tour,” he said.

Jennifer Lopez Weighs In On 'American Idol's Last Season: 'It's Possible' It Might Not Be

Jennifer Lopez leans over Keith Urban to chat with Ryan Seacrest on the American Idol panel at the FOX portion during the 2016 Winter TCA Tour held at the Langham Huntington Hotel on Friday afternoon (January 15) in Pasadena, Calif.

The two judges and host were joined by Harry Connick, Jr. and mentor Scott Borchetta as well as several Idol alums.

Season 10′s runner-up Lauren Alaina and winner Scotty McCreery, Season 14′s Nick Fradiani, Season 8′s Kris Allen, Season 7′s David Cook, Season 6′s Jordin Sparks, and Season 2′s Ruben Studdard also joined the discussion.

On the panel, all three judges and Ryan were quick to say that this current season may not be its’ final.

“You never know with a format like this – it’s possible,” Jennifer shared during the debate of whether season 15 was the “final” or “farewell”. “Whether they’re making a mistake, if that’s the feeling, right now, that’s their feeling…At the end of the day you never know.”

Ryan added, “I was just speaking to Gary and Dana [cochairs/CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman] before the session. The numbers look great this season and we’re all pleased people are watching, and some are coming back to watch…Does that mean it’s the end? I’m not so sure.”

FYI: Jennifer is in a Lover dress and Jimmy Choo shoes.
