Fox Reality Channel has announced former American Idol fifth-season finalist Ace Young and Skating with Celebrities runner-up Jillian Reynolds will helm American Idol Extra's upcoming installment.
"We're delighted to have Jillian Reynolds and Ace Young join us as the host and co-host for Season 4 of American Idol Extra," said Fox Reality Channel programming executive Bob Boden.
The American Idol companion series' fourth season will premiere Thursday, March 26 at 7PM ET/PT, and each episode will include "the first exclusive sit-down interview" with that week's eliminated eighth-season finalist.
In addition, American Idol Extra's fourth season will be the first to film from the same stage as the Fox mega-hit.
"American Idol has become a cornerstone of American pop-culture and we are proud to be the exclusive cable and satellite network to broadcast straight from the Idol stage," said Boden.
