Idol fans get ready — for an entirely new ball game.
Now that Bluffton’s Lee Jean is among the show’s “Top 10” finalists, fans can expect to see a new level of intensity.
The show returns this week, but will only air Thursday and, in fact, will run one night a week until the “Grand Finale Week,” which kicks off April 5.
Jean, 16, has been making regular appearances on the reality music show competition since January.
Never miss a local story.
According to the program’s website, viewers will find out which finalists made it into the Top 8 after the American viewing public voted last week, meaning two will go home.
A watch party and fundraising event for Jean is set for 6 p.m. Thurday, at the Rooftop Bar at Poseidon, 38 Shelter Cove Lane, Hilton Head.
For those who prefer to watch along at home, this week’s live two-hour show is at 8 p.m. Thursday.
