Law & Order: SVU (9pm, NBC) - Singing coach Jackie Walker (2013 Tony Award-winner Billy Porter from “Kinky Boots”) is at the height of his career, with a featured role on television’s biggest reality show, “American Diva,” and a steady position teaching music at a prestigious New York City school. When a four year-old student comes forward with claims of sexual abuse, Detective Rollins asks the squad to be mindful of Walker’s reputation, but Benson’s investigation uncovers evidence that condemns the popular personality. As the case becomes public, more and more victims come forward, but Walker refuses to come clean. But here’s the important part: “American Idol” alumni Clay Aiken and Taylor Hicks, along with singer Ashanti, play themselves as judges.
