Rihanna, David Archuleta, Jason Derulo To Perform On ‘American Idol’

5 April 2010



Wow! What wonderful news! It had better be true. According to MTV and other entertainment news sources, David Archuleta will sing “Imagine” on Wednesday night’s American Idol results program. Awesome!

Fox announced Monday (April 5) that this week’s results program, airing Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET, will feature performances by Rihanna, singing "Te Amo"; Jason Derülo, singing "In My Head"; and season-seven runner-up David Archuleta, performing Lennon’s "Imagine."

While this is the first appearance on the wildly popular show for Rihanna and Derülo, 19-year-old Archuleta is of course most widely known for his run on the program, making his mark during season seven with his showcase performance of John Lennon’s famous solo hit.

The song, in fact, became a calling card of sorts for the then-17-year-old crooner, who first performed it in only his second week on the show. At the time, his rendition of the tune catapulted him to front-runner status, leaving then-judge Paula Abdul teary-eyed and igniting a wellspring of support. Archuleta made it all the way to the final show, failing only to beat rival David Cook.

Rihanna, Derülo and Archuleta are the latest high-profile singers to be featured on Idol this year, following performances from Diddy-Dirty Money and Usher last week and Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas the week before.
