On April 21, "American Idol" fans began the exciting process of winnowing down the Top 10 contestant pool to crown America's next singing sensation via a live coast-to-coast vote.

What's surprising is the fact that none of this year's judges - Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie - tweeted anything about the renewal.

Checotah native and Season 4 victor Carrie Underwood announced on social media today that she is returning to "American Idol" to perform on Sunday's season finale.

The current season is down to the top three finalists, Alejandro Aranda, Laine Hardy and Madison VanDenburg, ahead of next week's finale. In this episode, each contestant will perform three songs: a pick from in-house mentor, Bobby Bones; a song dedicated to their heroes in honor of Mother's Day; and a selection from Elton John's world-renowned catalog.

"I'm really going to go back to what I feel most comfortable with, so you should expect very big songs, songs that people know". The high school student from Cohoes, NY tried out for the show last fall in Buffalo.

Alejandro wowed the judges as well as Idol fans with his vocals, guitar, and piano playing skills.

Reality TV World is now available on the all-new Google News app and website.

Madison was shown taking the stage with "Your Song", and Laine chose to sing "Something About the Way You Look Tonight" by the musical legend.
