LISA'S SPOTLIGHT MOMENT
ON "THE SIMPSONS"
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2, ON FOX
AMERICAN IDOL Fantasia Barrino Guest-Stars
When Lisa agrees to participate in a Krusty-sponsored "Li'l Starmaker" competition, she panics when another contestant (guest star Fantasia Barrino) performs a better rendition of "Mockingbird." Thankfully, Homer saves the day by hammering out a manipulative tune about Springfield that leads Lisa to victory. With a win under his belt, Homer becomes a star-crazed stage father/manager, who ultimately drives Lisa to fire him. A distraught Homer counters by taking Lisa's rival, Cameron, under his wing to groom him for the finals on THE SIMPSONS episode "A Star is Torn" Sunday, Oct. 2 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
