As the nation prepares to crown its 2023 winner of American Idol, the list of performers due to take the stage during the hotly anticipated grand finale has been confirmed.
One of country's newest converts, Jelly Roll, will perform during the event, with the country-rock up-and-comer currently gearing up to release his brand new album, Whitsitt Chapel, on June 2.
Jelly Roll recently impressed the 2023 ACM Awards crowd with a momentous performance of his latest single, ‘Save Me’, featuring a captivating guest appearance from Jelly Roll's label-mate, Lainey Wilson.
With Bell Bottom Country chart-topper Lainey Wilson also revealed to be performing during the American Idol finale on May 21, the two BBR Music Group signees are widely expected to deliver another show-stopping rendition of ‘Save Me’.
