WEEK AHEAD: Carrie Sings at the CMA Fest

Plus: Mary J. Blige goes to daytime TV, Adrienne & Christopher tie the knot on My Fair Brady and more

American Idol‘s Carrie Underwood and a host of country stars perform on the CMA Music Festival on ABC on Monday. PEOPLE takes a look at who else made the Nashville scene plus other events to watch for in the coming week:

SUNDAY, JULY 23: It was a romance born on reality TV. They met on the Surreal Life and have been chronicling their engagement on My Fair Brady: We’re Getting Married! Now model Adrianne Curry and former Brady Bunch-er Christopher Knight will finally tie the knot in the show’s finale (9 p.m. ET). And don’t expect the bickering duo to get hitched without a hitch: This is the couple, after all, who went into counseling before they even walked down the aisle!

MONDAY, JULY 24: If you couldn’t get to Nashville for country’s biggest four-day party, no need to fret. You’ll have a front-row seat when ABC airs some of the CMA Music Festival’s performances by American Idol star Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Brooks & Dunn, Sugarland and Clint Black. (9 p.m. ET).

THURSDAY, JULY 27: Watch everyday folks don their self-styled superhero costumes – meet Levity, who controls air molecules and creates force fields, and Hot Momma, who can grow to five times her normal size when she gets mad – and battle it out to become the next cool crime-fighter in the new Sci Fi series Who Wants to Be a Superhero? (9 p.m. ET). The winner gets to live out every true geek’s fantasy: making an appearance in a comic by Spider-Man creator Stan Lee.

FRIDAY, JULY 28: Okay, just a little more drama. Mary J. Blige, who’s on the road with her “Breakthrough” tour, is making a daytime appearance on One Life to Live (ABC at 2 p.m. ET). The R&B diva won’t be crying in an over-the-top scene – she’ll be doing what she does best, performing two of her hits.
