Phillip Phillips Joins "A Capitol Fourth" Lineup

Credit: Nick WalkerThis year's annual Independence Day concert, A Capitol Fourth, will feature not one but two American Idol champs.

USA Today reports that season 11 champ Phillip Phillips has joined the lineup of the PBS concert, which already includes season six champ Jordin Sparks, as well as Michael McDonald, Patti LaBelle and Frankie Valli.  Phillip will perform his hit "Raging Fire."

Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy have also joined the lineup, and will perform the song "Rainbow Connection," from the very first Muppet movie back in 1979.

Tom Bergeron hosts the festivities, which will air live from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. on Friday, July 4 at 8 p.m. ET.  In addition to the performers, there will also be fireworks and music from the National Symphony Orchestra.
