Usher was already previously announced to be on Wednesday’s results show to sing “OMG.” Now Diddy is joining Dirty Money to sing “Hello, Good Morning.”
MTV also confirmed that Atlanta’s Justin Bieber will get a few minutes, too. I presume he’d sing his latest single “Baby.” Usher helped sign and develop Bieber. UPDATE: The MTV dude James Cantiello who Tweeted sent me this email note:
Saw on your site that you’re using my Tweet as confirmation for the Bieber appearance Wednesday. I was just cracking a joke based on a Tweet I saw from MJsBigBlog. No official confirmation. (Although I’m 99% sure it’s happening.)
Yes, all this hip hop and youthful pop is another attempt to bring in the younger viewers, who are fleeing the show much faster than older folks.
-Nigel Lythgoe is also Tweeting changes to “So You Think You Can Dance.” Among the changes, no more top 20, a different partner each week and only one person out each week. That tells me there will likely be a top 12, not a top 20.
- Paula Abdul has committed to… something! Radaronline said she’s going on Broadway. She will be performing in the musical “In the Heights.”
UPDATE: Playbill.com, a more credible source, said Radaronline’s report is 100% false.
