What to Watch: April 21

by Kim Potts, posted Apr 21st 2010 6:00AM
'Idol Gives Back' (8PM, Fox)
Alicia Keys, Carrie Underwood, the Black Eyed Peas, Annie Lennox and Jeff Beck are among the scheduled performers on tonight's third 'Idol Gives Back' special, in which celebs, the 'Idol' judges and former 'AI' contestants work together to aid several charitable organizations, and encourage viewers to do the same. President and First Lady Obama taped a message that will air during the show, while Simon Cowell travels to Arizona to meet those operating and benefitting from the Children's Health Fund, Elliott Yamin and Didi Benami are among the 'AI' alum who pitch in to help food banks and Randy Jackson and guest Morgan Freeman visit the Save the Children program in Mississippi. The night is also scheduled to include the announcement of which of the remaining seven current 'AI' finalists will be voted off after last's night's performances. But, as they did with the 2007 'Idol Gives Back' special, we suspect producers may opt for a double elimination next week, sparing viewers and the contestants the buzzkill of bidding one of the wannabes goodbye on this feel-good night.'Idol Gives Back' (8PM, Fox)
