The American Idol 2013 Top 4 will be returning to the stage again this week, and this time, someone will go home. So the American Idol song choices this week for each of the Top 4 finalists will have to be perfect. We know what the themes will be for the Top 4 redux show, thanks to our American Idol spoilers, but what should the ladies sing?

The overall theme for this week’s American Idol performances show is “now and then” — which is broken down into “songs from 2013” for now and “standards” for then.

We’re excited about watching each of the American Idol Top 4 finalists have to perform something that is a hit out there right now. That will help show who can really compete with the hit-makers out there right now by taking on their songs and trying to make them their own. We anticipate Kree Harrison and Angie Miller truly shining in this half of the show.

The “then” part is not so exciting, however. We’re sure that “standards” will mostly mean really old, totally overdone ballads from the same singers we’ve all heard on these reality TV show competitions over and over and over. Still, this category will probably give at least a “wow” moment or two for Candice Glover and Amber Holcomb in particular.

So what should the American Idol Top 4 sing for week 8, their second time around? Here’s our thoughts, be sure to share yours!

Angie Miller — “Just Give Me A Reason” by P!nk or “Heart Attack” by Demi Lovato
