Kelly Clarkson, Ryan Malcolm, and nine other Idol winners will compete at the end of this year in “World Idol.”
The performances will be shown on December 25, while the results will air January 1, from London, England.
The prizes have yet to be announced, and some details, such as voting, are still being worked out. Only winners from the first seasons will be allowed to compete, leaving Ruben Studdard (wait, Clay didn’t win?) waiting for a second World Idol.
One judge from each country will make the trip to London.
The competitors are: UK’s Will Young, U.S.’s Clarkson, Belgium’s Peter Evrard, Canada’s Malcolm, Germany’s Alexander Klaws, Lebanon’s Diana Karazon, Netherlands’ Jamai Loman, Norway’s Kurt Nilsen, Poland’s Alicja Janosz, South Africa’s Heinz Winckler and an Australian contestant who will be selected Wednesday.
