It’s about to get contemporary up in here! American Idol Season 11’s Top 7 are going to sing songs that they’re actually old enough to remember this week.
Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe let it slip on his Twitter account the theme for Wednesday’s performances is “This Decade,” meaning the remaining contestants will be able to choose from songs released in 2010, 2011, and 2012. It’s a short period of time, but there’s tons of amazing material in there.
Nigel later added that they’ll work with R&B artist Akon, who performed on the show in 2007.
