It’s Grand Ole Opry Week on American Idol, and while the theme might benefit singers like Alexis “incredible shrinking outfits” Grace, Michael “I am not a country artist” Sarver, and maybe even Matt “I’m bluesy!” Giraud, my co-host Kristen Baldwin and I worry that Anoop “New Jack Swing” Desai and Scott “plain oatmeal” MacIntyre might struggle. Do press play below, and if you missed this weekend’s Michael Jackson recap double episode of Idolatry (featuring Kristen slapping herself in the face!), both parts will automatically stream when our Opry Week preview is finished playing. Enjoy!
