The American Idol spoilers for this week’s song choices are out! What have the ladies chosen to sing for their second time around in the Top 4? We have the scoop!
On American Idol 2013 this week, the overall song theme is “then and now,” which is broken down into two categories: “songs of 2013” and “standards.” We shared our thoughts on what the American Idol Top 4 should sing yesterday, and some of the songs we liked actually did end up being chosen — but not by the girls we picked them for!
Here were our song choices:
Angie Miller — “Your Song” by Elton John, “Fever” by Peggy Lee or “Killing Me Softly” by Charles Fox
Candice Glover — “God Bless the Child” by Billie Holiday or “I Put Spell On You” by Nina Simone
Kree Harrison — “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” or “Cry Me a River” by Ella Fitzgerald
Amber Holcomb — “You’ve Changed” by Eva Cassidy or “Son of a Preacher Man” by Dusty Springfield
Now (Songs from 2013)
Angie Miller — “Just Give Me A Reason” by P!nk or “Heart Attack” by Demi Lovato
Candice Glover — “Diamonds” by Rihanna or “Stay” by Rihanna
Kree Harrison — “Next to Me” by Emeli Sandé or “Two Black Cadillacs” by Carrie Underwood or “Merry Go Round” by Kacey Musgraves
Amber Holcomb — “Nuclear” by Destiny’s Child or “The Way” by Ariana Grande
And here’s what they will actually be singing, according to American Idol spoilers site The Idol Pad.
Amber Holcomb – “My Funny Valentine” – Boring and already been done this season!
Angie Miller – “Someone to Watch Over Me” – We almost picked this one for Amber, but we’re just not that excited about it for Angie.
Kree Harrison – “Stormy Weather” – Not bad, but we really wanted “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
Candice Glover – “You’ve Changed” – We picked this for Amber, but we’re happy to hear Candice do it.
Group Number: Amber Holcomb, Angela Miller, Candice Glover, and Kree Harrison – “Wings” by Little Mix.
Now (Songs from 2013)
Amber Holcomb – “Just Give Me A Reason” by Pink & Nate Ruess – We really wanted to hear Angie sing this one.
Angie Miller – “Diamonds” by Rihanna – Angie should do a good job on this, especially if she plays the piano, but we were really hoping for P!nk or Demi Lovato for her.
Candice Glover – “When I Was Your Man” by Bruno Mars – Interesting choice, especially considering the pronouns in this song, but she did justice to Drake, so why not? We still would love to hear her belt some Rihanna.
Kree Harrison – “See You Again” by Carrie Underwood – We thought she might do Carrie, but we were hoping for “Two Black Cadillacs” instead. We really wanted “Next to Me” by Emeli Sandé though.
And who is the guest mentor for the evening? Look out for wise words from Harry Connick Jr.!
