King Charles and his second wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles, made a surprise appearance on “American Idol” Tonight.
The show’s Lionel Richie and Katy Perry performed at the Coronation Ball because, frankly, no Brits would do it. The pair of singers then cheekily introduced the royals. Charles joked “We wanted to know how long you need this room.”
I was watching to see what Ed Sheeran was doing after winning his copyright trial. His new album, “Minus,” has just been released. “Idol” contestants will sing Sheeran songs that haven’t been contested in court.
It was a telling move by the King of England, who wants to gain mass appeal in a country that is skeptical of the royals. “American Idol” is no “60 Minutes.” It’s the modern day equivalent of Richard Nixon appearing on “Laugh In.” So Charles is going low. Camilla looks like a load of fun, by the way.
