Hollywood Reporter — Half of No Doubt will appear on American Idolâ€™s next week as singer Gwen Stefani and bassist Tony Kanal will mentor the remaining finalists, The theme: 80s night, which is a perfect fit for the Orange County-bred band, who were not only teenagers during the decade, but had a Top 10 single in 2003 with a cover of Talk Talkâ€™s 1985 hit, â€œItâ€™s My Life.â€
No Doubt is also signed to Interscope, the label headed by Idol perma-mentor Jimmy Iovine. Stefani has appeared on Idol previously, perhaps most memorably styling the season 10 contestants last year in her own L.A.M.B. line.
The band members spent five hours with the season 11 finalists on Friday. As always, sessions took place at Interscope Recordsâ€™ Santa Monica recording studio complex.
Tune in to Fox on Wednesday to see how the Top 8 fare.
