As we’ve previously reported, Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood will also return for the final episodes of the long-running FOX singing competition series.
Dunkleman was one of the show’s original hosts, alongside Ryan Seacrest, when American Idol launched in 2002. He left after the first season and went on to perform stand-up and appear on Celebrity Fit Club.
William Hung first appeared on American Idol when he auditioned for the series’ third season. His unorthodox cover of Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs” quickly went viral.
The series finale of American Idol continues tonight, April 6th, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
