Mastodon Takes American Idol Stage
American Idol takes on "Hard Rock" themed week with the addition of bearded rockers Mastodon, who will perform on Tuesday's (April 6) live show. Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds was a guest on this mornings KIIS FM radio show "On-Air With Ryan Seacrest" where he told the Idol host: "We are obviously no stranger to Live Television, I mean we played Conan and Letterman before. So as bizarre as it sounds, this is some what familiar territory for us. Idol is a huge platform for our music to reach a whole new audience, and we definitely plan on bringing metal to the masses with this show."
In keeping with the "Hard Rock" theme for the show, Idols will go under the wing of mentor and KISS legend Gene Simmons. Contestants will be selecting heavy songs from Judas Priest to Iron Maiden, and taking advice from Simmons to perfect their "rock star" stage presence. American Idol airs Tuesday's at 8:00 PM ET, and Wednesday's at 9:00 PM ET on the FOX Network.
