It's a good week to be one of the talents who did NOT win American Idol.
First, Jennifer Hudson won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress Sunday night. It was a signal to hopefuls everywhere that simply being on the show can do wonders for your career.
Now, it's been announced that a finalist from last season will appear Thursday night. Following in the footsteps of Fantasia from a week ago, look for Kellie Pickler to perform during the American Idol results show this Thursday.
We can't wait.
