‘Idol’ shooting Detroit mentoring footage
The singing competition series
American Idol is shooting footage for an upcoming Motown-themed episode at Detroit's Motown Historical Museum.
The Detroit Free Press quoted sources as saying the popular Fox show's cast and crew headed to the museum's Studio A attraction this week so Detroit music stars Berry Gordy Jr. and Smokey Robinson could mentor the show's 10 finalists through a series of Motown song selections.The taped segments are intended to air next week before the contestants perform the songs live on the show in Los Angeles, the Free Press said.
