Earlier this year American Idol announced that Bobby Bones will join their team this season as the mentor of the Top 24 contestants. Bones will share his expertise and advice on all areas of being an artist - covering stage presence, dealing with media, posting on social media, remaining focused and being authentic and original.
This first season of American Idol on ABC started on March 11th, but Bones wasn't scheduled to make his appearances until the later episodes. Now we have an official date for when Bones will be on the show!
That's right, April 8th is the first time we will see Bones on National Television for American Idol. Set your DVRs right now so you don't miss it!
