Twain will be the perfect mentor for the Idol Top 10. She has sold over 100 million albums over the course of her career. This makes her one of the best-selling singers ever, not just in country music.

She also has five Grammy Awards and has been inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. To top it off, Twain has successfully maintained a residency in Las Vegas, and has a new one kicking off in May!

Idol Alum Scotty McCreery Will Return To The Show As A Guest Performer

Scotty McCreery will also appear on Idol as a guest performer. He’ll share a performance of his new single, “Slow Dance.” You can familiarize yourself with the song by listening to the clip below.
