Shania Twain goes Idol

Friday, April 23, 2010 – Shania Twain will appear on American Idol next Tuesday on an episode that will see contestants singing her songs. Twain will not perform.

Twain, who is the best-selling female country artist of all time, will be part of a country-themed Idol week. On Wednesday's elimination show, Rascal Flatts will perform their hit, Unstoppable. They will also join Shakira for a performance on her song Gypsy, while Lady Antebellum will sing their recent chart-topper, Need You Now.

Twain, who has not released a disc since 2002's "Up," will appear in her own TV show - an hour-long reality show called Why Not? With Shania Twain - on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. "The show will follow (Twain) as she begins her climb back to the top, a personal journey filled with risk, revelations and unexpected adventures," a statement released by the network said.
