This is kind of odd.
Here's what MCR frontman Gerard Way had to say about it:
"We don't know for sure, but any kind of infiltration is great, so the offer was pretty much a no-brainer. It's something a lot of people are going to see and they'll hear the music which is the most important thing."
More from guitarist Frank Lero:
"I think it would be really cool if an actual band was heard on the biggest music TV show."
My Chemical Romance seems a bit out of place for the show, but maybe there's something cool about that. Guess we'll see when promos start airing.
Would U like to hear MCR on American Idol?
