Miley Cyrus to Be a Mentor on 'Idol'
Teen idol Miley Cyrus, aka Hannah Montana, 17, is going to give the "American Idol" singers a little advice.
Cyrus will bring her voice of experience as a guest mentor on the show this week, Reuters reports, and will coach the remaining 11 contestants as they sing songs from Billboard's #1 hits.
She will also perform on Wednesday night's results show, along with her Disney Channel cohorts, Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato.
"American Idol" was originally going to go with a "Teen Idol" theme this week, but it was decided to broaden it to include Billboard's top hits, FOX network said Monday in a statement.
Cyrus will also be seen in the upcoming feature film "The Last Song," based on "The Notebook" author Nicholas Sparks' novel, and co-starring Cyrus' real-life boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth. "The Last Song" opens March 31.
