American Idol 2011 Top 7 Song List Spoilers
This should be an interesting week on American Idol. The Top 7 contestants will sing song from the 21st century. This means they can choose any song that has come out since 2000. That leaves things wide open. Who will embrace the challenge and who will follow Paul McDonald on the elimination block?
Something of interest that may or may not affect the singer’s song choices is the rumor that Bruce Springsteen visited the American Idol Top 7 this week. There is no word yet if Bruce just said hi and gave some quick advice or if he will actually be sitting in and acting as a mentor of sorts this week. How strange will it be if Bruce is in the audience watching?
Since the American Idol producers are being very tight lipped about what songs are being performed we can only speculate our own spoilers. If it were left up to me these are the songs that I would love to have them sing:
Casey Abrams – He seems to be able to do anything, but I would like to see him do Everclear’s “Santa Monica.”
Lauren Alaina – She would be a perfect fit for something a little country so I think she will do “Breathe” by Faith Hill.
James Durbin – He has done the heavy metal thing now, but I wouldn’t look for him to change much so I would have him do Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends.”
Jacob Lusk – He will likely pick some over the top ballad, but it is time for him to lighten up and have some fun. Doing the Black Eyed Peas “I Gotta Feeling” would be a fun choice.
Stefano Langone – He will likely pick an Usher song, but I think it is time for him to lighten up and stop trying to out scream everyone else on American Idol. He should do The Plain White T’s “Hey There Delilah.”
Scotty McCreery – There are a ton of great country songs for him to choose from and I doubt he would waver from what works for him, but I think he would do well doing Johnny Cash’s version of “Hurt.” It would be a ballsy choice, but I think he could pull it off.
Haley Reinhart – She could do something with a rock edge, but I would like to see her hit a little of the country in her voice by doing the Dixie Chicks “Not Ready to Make Nice.”
There you have it. These are my choices for what I think the American Idol Top 7 should sing. Tune in tonight at 8PM on FOX to find out what they sing and how it all works out.
