Jessica Sanchez Phil Idol Perform

Looks like Idol is pulling out ALL the stops for their season 11 finale tonight!

While we previously mentioned that Kristin Chenoweth will be performing Donna Summer’s Enough Is Enough with Barbra Streisand finalist Jessica Sanchez, that’s just the beginning for the show’s performances!

The girl finalists will hit the stage with an all-out Donna tribute and will be joined by Gloria Gaynor, Thelma Houston, Gladys Knight, Nelly Furtado, Sheila E. and Jennifer Holliday!

After the recent passing of Robin Gibb this past weekend, the season 11 boys will be paying tribute as well, by singing a medley of Bee Gees songs.

Chaka Khan will also be singing with the girls in a group performance and the boys will be graced by Neil Diamond’s presence for a number!

Other guest stars slated to perform with the Idols?

John Fogerty will join Phillip Phillips in a duet, Reba McEntire will pair up with Skylar Laine and Season 3 Idol winner Fantasia will duet with her "Mantasia," Joshua Ledet!

Finalist Jessica will also take on And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going with Jennifer Hudson Holliday and Hollie Cavanagh will go Broadway with season six winner, Jordin Sparks!

And if that's not enough star power for you, Rihanna will be slaying the audience, as will Steven Tyler, when he joins his band Aerosmith on stage!

That's not to leave judge Jennifer Lopez out of the party — she'll be taking the lead with tour partners Wisin Y Yandel, performing their single Follow The Leader!!

Whew!! What a line up!

Tune in TONIGHT to see ALL these numbers and to find out who gets crowned American Idol 2012!

The 2-hour finale airs at 8pm and will run over until 10:07…so if you're going to miss it, make sure to set your DVR to capture the last seven minutes!

    I haven't even watched the show this season, but I can already predict the winner will be Philip: i.e. - the cute boy with the guitar, Part V.

    So a show in which the whole point is to be the best singer, is going to hire a bunch of mediocre autotune popstars like J Lo and Rihanna?

    Yeah, makes perfect sense.

    Maybe at the World Series we can get some T-ball players to show the professionals how it's done.

    Rihanna did a sensational job! Looked amazing too. I love the choreography and elaborate set. Rihanna nailed this performance!! I love how she never lip synchs no matter how intense the choreography gets.

    Rihanna slayed all of these hoes. J. Lo was great too. Too bad they out-shined all of the contestants with their big glitzy performances. I think Rihanna's performance might have been the biggest performance ever for American Idol, just going by the stage setup, number of dancers, and the effects.
