Miley Cyrus Mentors American Idol Top 11
New issue rose up when American Idol announced that the guest mentor for the top 11 performances will be teen star Miley Cyrus.
Cyrus, of the Hannah Montana fame, recorded hits that include The Climb. Many believed that the 17-year-old is not yet fit enough to become a mentor to the contestants, whom most are actually older than her.
“Her experience in the music industry and her advice in handling fame at a young age proved invaluable,” defended executive producer Ken Warwick in a statement to People.
The top 11 will be performing songs that went on to become Billboard #1 Hits.
The singer will return on Wednesday for the elimination night performing When I Look At You. A duet performance will also be rendered by new couple and fellow Disney stars Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas. They will sing Make A Wave. Jonas was a guest judge on the show during the second audition date in Dallas, Texas.
