Tonight I will be liveblogging the American Idol finale with a special guest: Blake Lewis, runner-up of Idol’s season 6. He will be live at the finale in L.A. I will be on my couch in Brooklyn. I do not believe he will be beatboxing. If I get enough drinks in me, I just might.
The liveblog starts tonight. [Update: Blake starts liveblogging from the Idol red carpet, at 6 p.m. E.T., so come by early.] Look for it here at time.com, or if you’re on Twitter, follow @TimeLiveBlog.
