Miley Cyrus to Mentor American Idol Contestants

Teen queen Miley Cyrus will mentor the final 11 American Idol contestants this week. She appeared on the show last night to help the wannabe superstars prepare for their performances on an episode of the show featuring Billboard hits. Cyrus' mentoring session places her in a league with greats like Paul McCartney, Slash, Dolly Parton and Mariah Carey.
Really, Idol producers? McCartney, Mariah and… Miley? This has got to be a ratings ploy designed to ensare a younger viewership because Miley and McCartney don't even belong in the same sentence and it has nada to do with the generation gap.
Cyrus will also perform on the show on Wednesday night, playing her song, "When I Look at You." Cyrus' fellow Disney'ians Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato, who only recently confirmed their couplehood, will also appear on the show, singing the duet, "Make a Wave," before a contestant is sent packing and shipped home. Ready, say it with us, on the count o' three… One. Two. Three. "Awwwww!" Who wants to wager that this romance is kaput by August?
Also, all you Miley fanatics peep Miss Miley's video interview with ARTISTdirect's Rick Florino here, where she talks about her role in The Last Song and her fandom of Nirvana and Radiohead. Ah, we knew the former Hannah Montana loves Thom Yorke, a fact which didn't impress the much-worshipped, lazy-eyed, brilliant Brit.
What are you favorite Nirvana and Radiohead songs? And would you watch Idol simply because Miley's on it?
