The American Idol 2013 Top 10 week theme is going to be “Music of American Idols” which means we’ll be hiring the hits from the very best Idol has to offer. The singers will be able to reach back over the past eleven seasons and cherry pick their favorite songs from their favorite past winners. No word if each of the Top 10 finalists will be assigned a specific winner or if they can double up on one. I’m kind of hoping we’ll get ten Lee DeWyze performances. Fingers crossed!
The Top 10 finalists will perform “Music of the AMERICAN IDOLs,” which includes songs performed by any past IDOL winner.
Tune in the following night, Thursday, March 14th 2013, as America finds out who received enough votes to continue in the competition and who will be sent home. In addition, world-renowned rock group Bon Jovi will perform their lead single “Because We Can” and quadruple-platinum, Billboard chart-topper and AMERICAN IDOL winner Phillip Phillips will perform “Gone, Gone, Gone,” the second single from his debut album.
That’ll be fun to get Phillip Phillips back on the stage and probably just as well he’s not doing “Home” again because that performance last year had so much emotion that I imagine it’s hard to recreate all that a season later.
Hopefully between now and Wednesday’s live performance show we’ll get some song list leaks for a little good ol’ American Idol spoilers. Considering the finalists can perform not only a hit song from the past winner, but also a song sung by that winner while on the show will make predicting song choices pretty difficult. Seems like they’d have enough options to keep it to just the winner’s hit songs, but I appreciate American Idol 2013 working to avoid boxing in any of the artists more than they have to.
What do you think of the theme for this week on American Idol?
