    Default Halen on American Idol???

    I heard a (very unreliable source) rumor that Van Halen might be appearing on American Idol in the next few weeks??? I think that it's pure speculation though. I haven't found anything out there on the web that backs this one up.

    There's an article about American Idol that the producer says: Within the next two weeks “American Idol” viewers will see “the biggest thing to happen to ‘Idol’ in five years,” according to Nigel Lythgoe, the show’s executive producer. "It does include ‘American Idol,’ and it does include America," he told TelevisionWeek Editorial Director Chuck Ross.


    Now that would be so cool to have them on. Last year they had Queen on the show. Halen is definitely American. I just don't think that the American Idol target audience even knows who they are anymore. I could be wrong though!!

    Anyone else out there heard anything about this????

    I guess I'll have to start recording AI (I don't usually watch it). It'd be funny if Simon ripped them a new one. Or if they were like "get rid of the kid and bring back Mike".

    Yeah, that ain't gonna happen. It's a completely different style of music appealing to an entirely different audience. It doesn't benefit either the band or the TV show.

    Shouldn't this be in the "Rumors" forum anyways?

    As Simon says, American Idol is about singing. That's the last thing this version of 'Van Halen' is about. Unless they do AI to find some backups for the tour.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    IAMA I am a stage hand for big mainstream artists. (self.IAmA)

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    Or a lead singer for the next tour.

    I believe Micheal Jackson is who they are talking about. I've heard he may get a whole week on the show.
