“American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest recently announced that next week’s episode, the 400th of the series, will pay tribute to Whitney Houston.

“We are trying to figure out how we can go in and obviously pay tribute [to Houston] in some way and acknowledge the impact that she had on popular singers, popular music and young singers that are trying to make it,” he said.

Mary J. Blige will be the celebrity mentor for the Whitney Houston tribute episode, and Season 10 runner-up Lauren Alaina will return to the “Idol” set to perform live.
