A spoiler site is reporting the Top 4 "American Idol" finalists will perform duets as part of Tuesday's rock week.
Never miss a local story.
So far, it's a rumor unconfirmed by "Idol" producers. But in a season when episodes have consistently struggled to stay in the one-hour time frame, it makes sense.
The Top 5 round, for example, is traditionally a night when each contestant sings two songs. This year, the finalists sang just one -- presumably to account for the extra time that came with the addition of a fourth judge, Kara DioGuardi.
Adding a duet instead of a second tune for the Top 4 would make for six total performances instead of eight -- and a better likelihood the show will end in time.
Still, "Idol" has never before used the duet concept, and it has potential to require extra rehearsal time and interfere with the show's single-singer focus.
Remaining contestants are Allison Iraheta, Kris Allen, Adam Lambert and Danny Gokey.
Would you be happy to see contestants duet? Which two singers would you most like to see paired together?
