'American Idol's seventh-season finale to air May 20 and 21 on Fox
By Christopher Rocchio, 03/12/2008
Fox has announced American Idol's seventh-season finale will air live over the course of two consecutive nights beginning Tuesday, May 20.
Idol's Top 2 seventh-season finalists will take the stage and perform during a live one-hour broadcast on Tuesday, May 20 at 8PM ET/PT. The following night beginning at 8PM ET/PT, Idol's seventh-season champ will be revealed at the conclusion of a live two-hour broadcast -- which will no doubt feature tons of filler.
In addition, Idol's finale has relocated from the Kodak Theater -- the site of the first six Idol finales -- to the Nokia Theatre, which is at the center of Los Angeles' L.A. Live -- a new four million square-foot complex that opened last October. The Nokia Theatre features a studio audience seating capacity of 7,000 while the Kodak Theater could only seat 3,400 people.
