American Idol 2011 Top 3 Song List Spoilers
The American Idol Top 3 will head home this week and sing three songs, here are the song list spoilers.
This week is big for the Top 3 on American Idol. First off, they all get to go home and were welcomed like conquering heroes. They had parades in their honor, sang in front of huge crowds and Haley Reinhart’s home town even made in Haley Reinhart Day. While the singers were off getting some home cooking and seeing friends and family they also found out what songs the judges had picked for them to sing.
This week the contestants will all sing three songs. They will have one chosen by the judges, one chosen by Jimmy Iovine and one that they choose themselves. Being that the songs are performed in their hometown, we do have spoilers this week! While we only know 1 out of the 3 songs the American Idol top 3, it’s better than going into tonight blind, right?
Here is what we know so far. Each American Idol judge got to pick one song. Those choices are:
Jennifer Lopez chose “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack for Lauren Alaina. This seems like a nice safe choice for her and should be a song she can really sink her teeth into.
Steven Tyler chose “She Believes in Me” by Kenny Rogers for Scotty McCreery. This is a great choice. Scotty’s deep voice should tear this song up.
Randy Jackson apparently wants to destroy Haley Reinhart because he chose Alanis Morrisette’s “You Oughta Know.” This is the worst possible situation for her. For starters she will have to sing the cleaned up version which causes the song to lose some of its edge. From there it doesn’t get any better. This is one of those iconic songs that has such a unique sound and so ingrained into the public thought that there almost no way she can pull this off. Maybe if she flips it and turns it into a very slow jazz song or something she could make it her own, but short of that this is a disaster waiting to happen. Just see Cyrstal Bowersox getting blown off the stage by Alanis last season for all the evidence you need.
The rest of the songs for tonight’s American Idol top 3 are being heavily guarded. So here are a few predictions I had for what I would like them to sing:
Scotty McCreery: I would love to see him do Travid Tritt’s “Here’s a Quarter (call someone who cares)” or John Denvers “Thank God I’m a Country Boy.”
Haley Reinhart: I would like to see her do something like “Magic Man” by Heart or “Black Velvet” by Ahannah Myles.
Lauren Alaina: I think she could do “Don’t Impress Me Much” By Shania Twain and have a good time with it or maybe she could do a little Poison and sing “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.”
So there you have it. Some songs we know the Top 3 will do on American Idol this week as well as some that I would like to see them do. Tune in on Wednesday night at 8PM on Fox to watch the Top 3 sing and see footage of their wild homecomings.
