Bobby Bones has been the full time mentor for American Idol's latest season. He works with the contestants before they perform as they go through all of the stages of becoming an artist. Ryan Seacrest has been the host of the show for many years, but during filming recently he got sick. He was unable to host and Bones was there mentoring. So Bones got pulled by producers to fill in for Seacrest for the episode featuring all-star duets.
Bones will be seen many times throughout the entire episode alongside the contestants just as Seacrest would in his typical hosting duties. In talking about the hosting on The Bobby Bones Show, Bones asked listeners to tweet with the hashtag #AmericanIdol if you are watching and love his hosting.
The all-star duet episode airs tonight on ABC at 8/7 CT.
