That Big Idol Surprise?

American Idol will raise the dead on Wednesday! American Idol teased their "Idol Gives Back" charity benefit by revealing that "two of the biggest stars in musical history come together," sources at last week's taping told TMZ that Celine sang Elvis Presley's hit, "If I Can Dream" -- with an Elvis impersonator! (Lame, but wait!) TMZ was told the impersonator was just used as a stand-in, and what you will actually see when the show airs is Celine singing with a virtual Elvis very Natalie Cole and Nat King Cole's "Unforgettable." Unbelievable!

At the taping, the remaining Idol wannabes also sang with Celine and Elvis, but as backup as part of a choir. Elvis died nearly thirty years ago (August 16th will be thirty yesrs). Celine has been performing at Ceasar's Palace in Las Vegas for the last four years."Idol Gives Back" will help raise money to fight extreme poverty in the U.S. and Africa, and feature artists like Gwen Stefani, P!nk and Josh Groban. A rep for American Idol could not be reached by TMZ to confirm the story.
