A few weeks ago, "American Idol" contestant Lauren Alaina was told by Interscope producer Jimmy Iovine that she was a "much stronger singer than Miley Cyrus" after the 16 year-old hopeful did a rendition of Cyrus' "The Climb."
Because E! Online is reporting that Cyrus herself is going to appear on "idol" tonight to help mentor the young Alaina. And in regards to Iovine's comment, word is that he's patched things up with Cyrus and is even the driving force behind her guest appearance.
Cyrus is currently prepping for a tour of South America and Australia, which she kicks off Friday with a show in Ecuador.
