'American Idol' taps Miley Cyrus as mentor, dumps teen idols theme
By Christopher Rocchio, 03/22/2010
American Idol may have dumped its previously-announced "Teen Idols" theme for this week's Top 11 performance round, however it has tapped a teen idol to serve as the musical mentor.
Fox has announced that Miley Cyrus will serve as this week's guest mentor for the Top 11 ninth-season finalists when they perform Billboard No. 1 Hits during Tuesday night's live performance episode.
The 17-year-old Hannah Montana star will also perform "When I Look At You" during Wednesday night's live results show.
In addition, Joe Jonas -- who previously served as a guest judge during last summer's ninth-season audition in Dallas -- will perform a duet of "Make a Wave" with fellow Disney Channel star and girlfriend Demi Lovato on the results show.
Following last week's results show, Fox had announced that "Teen Idols" would be the theme for this week's performances.
