‘American Idol’ 2011 Elton John Song List Spoilers
Tonight the top 11 American Idol contestants will take on Elton John classics.
Elton John will be the muse this week on American Idol 2011 as the top 11 contestants tackle his greatest hits. Last week we saw the surprising elimination of Casey Abrams in which the judges used their one save. Tonight the Idol hopefuls will attempt Elton John as they go into tomorrow night’s double elimination. I have compiled a song list prediction sheet since audience members still aren’t allowed in rehearsals; we have to guess. Who will rise and who will fall?
Tonight we will clearly see who belongs in the American Idol competition as the contestants have to sing Elton John songs. Remember, these are just my predictions and in no way depict the ACTUAL song list that the American Idol Top 11 will be performing tonight:
- Casey Abrams – “Levon” is the song that popped in my head right away for Mr. Abrams to sing. As you remember, Taylor Hicks sang “Levon” during season 5 and he ended up winning! Look for Casey Abrams to redeem himself and make believers out of the American Idol voters tonight!
- James Durbin – This one is a no brainer as I look to see Durbin sing “Rocket Man” tonight. Of course he will add his own style to it and It will either be amazing or completely horrific.
- Pia Toscano – Our ballad loving diva will most likely choose a song from The Lion King. I see Pia doing “Circle of Life” as she disregards the judge’s feedback to stray away from ballads.
- Paul McDonald – This one is a tossup but I’d love to see Paul add his unique style to “Your Song” by Elton John. From what I have seen so far I think Paul McDonald could pull it off and deliver an amazing performance.
- Stefano Langone – “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word” comes to mind when I think of Stefano but honestly I don’t want him anywhere near Elton John songs. No matter what he chooses, he will butcher it; send him home already!
- Scotty McCreery – Being that Tim McGraw has successfully covered “Tiny Dancer” I predict Scotty will choose to sing it as well. We all know McCreery isn’t going to steer away from his country roots and I think he could be his charm on “Tiny Dancer” with ease.
- Haley Reinhart – I would absolutely love for Haley to add her sultry spin on “Blue Eyes.” I know a lot of people don’t like Haley’s style but I think she is pretty amazing. Will she make it through to another round of the 2011 Idol competition?
- Lauren Alaina – “I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues” might be a good song choice for this youngster. Alaina is a cutie and has impressed the judges all season but Elton John has some big shoes to fill and I hope she can pull it off.
- Naima Adedapo – I am still recovering from last week’s wacky American Idol performance and much like Stefano I don’t want Naima going anywhere near Elton John classics. My prediction is that she does us all a favor and throws in the towel.
- Thia Megia – Being one of the youngsters on the show I predict Thia will choose the other Lion King song, “Can You Feel The Love Tonight.” Hopefully she delivers a good enough performance to stay in the competition.
- Jacob Lusk – Mr. Powerhouse will definitely be singing “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me” and will probably nail it. Look for another strong performance by Lusk tonight on American Idol.
Well there you have it folks, my American Idol – Elton John song list predictions for tonight’s brand new episode of American Idol 2011. Will any of my predictions turn out to be accurate? Tune in tonight at 8|7c on FOX to find out!
