Around this time of year, it’s seems TV is all repeats, so you might be asking yourself, is American Idol new tonight? You’re in luck, as the two-hour performance show (8 p.m.-10 p.m. on FOX) is not only new but, now that it’s down to only four stellar singers, it’s sure to be exciting. The themes are rumored to be “personal choice” and “one hit wonders” and, yesterday, we discovered what most of these girls are singing thanks to some spoilers.
We have to say, when we initially heard these themes, we thought these girls would use the free reign to make some amazing picks, but we were a little disappointed by some of their choices.
Angie Miller could have gone with so many contemporary artists, but she’s rumored to be doing a Jessie J song, like she’s already done on the show three times before. And Amber Holcomb is singing a Celine Dion song. ‘Nuff said.
Candice Glover’s Drake song also seems like it could be a little sleepy for us, but she’s shown us she can take a boring song and knock it out of the park. Kree Harrison’s one hit wonder is "A Whiter Shade Of Pale" by Procol Harum/Annie Lennox, and we heard she’s singing a Susan Tedeschi song for her personal choice. While she’s a little known artist, we have a feeling this could be the moment we’ve all been waiting for when it comes to Kree. After nearly going home last week, she needs to show the passion she had during her performance of “Up To The Mountain”.
While we weren’t all that thrilled with the individual choices, the duets are going to be amazing. If the spoilers are correct, Amber and Kree will be singing “Rumor Has It” by Adele and Angie and Candice will be performing “Stay” by Rihanna. Not only are those pairs going to sound outstanding together, but we love those contemporary song choices.
Who do you think is going to shine on tonight’s American Idol performance show?
