American Idol

Janelle Arthur, Lazaro Arbos and Amber Holcomb Share Their Favorite Songs From Idol — Exclusive

The American Idol season 12 gang is back together! AEGLive caught up with Amber Holcomb, Lazaro Arbos, and Janelle Arthur as they rehearse for the fast-approaching American Idol LIVE! 2013 Tour in this exclusive video.

Each of the former Idol finalists reflected on their time on the show and shared their favorite performances. Amber, who is showing off a more edgy side with a nose ring, said her favorite was singing Barbra Streisand’s “What Are You Doing For The Rest Of Your Life?,” which was definitely our fave of hers as well. As she said, she loved that she was wearing a long ball gown and her hair up, calling it a “cool moment.”

Janelle’s fave was “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” as she was able to finally perform an arrangement that she’d had in her head for years, and pull out her trusty guitar. Lazaro’s favorite performance was “We Are The Champions,” because it reflects the struggles he’s had in his life.

Could they be giving us a hint about what they’ll be singing on this summer’s 40-show American Idol LIVE! Tour? Only time will tell!
