American Idol 2013: What Should The Top 5 Sing?


The American Idol 2013 Top 5 themes are hush-hush for some reason this week.

Candice Glover even tweeted “Okay so there will be no hint this week. Thank uncle Nigel haha.” Weird. However, earlier in the week, Janelle Arthur tweeted about doing songs by divas and that seems to be a pretty accurate rumor, so while we don’t know the other theme for sure, we’ll run with divas.

So what diva song should the Top 5 sing?

Janelle Arthur, Coat Of Many Colors by Dolly Parton. We’ve already heard that Dolly is among her idols, so it seems only fitting that she do one of her songs. I think most people would suggest her do Jolene, but that song has been done so much lately, it’s not longer effective.

Kree Harrison, Fancy by Reba McIntyre. I don’t know why I’m obsessed with her doing this song. I really think she could kill it. Kree does list Patsy Cline as one of her idols, so maybe a Patsy song would work, too. Maybe Crazy or Walking After Midnight.

Amber Holcomb, Because You Loved Me by Celine Dion. I’d never think of Celine on my own, but since she’s one of Amber’s idols (who knew!), I think she could really make this song her own. It’s important for her to do something recognizable and really have a moment or she’ll be singing for that final shot at the judges’ save.

Candice Glover, Respect by Aretha Franklin. This is way too obvious, but I’m drawing a blank for Candice. She and Angie always do the exact opposite of what I think, so I’m just going with this.

Angie Miller, Listen by Beyonce. Like I said above, Angie always does something way far off than I’d ever imagine (like Colton Dixon and Evanescence), so I’ll just go with one of her idol’s. I like the song and it’s powerful, so I think Angie could have a moment with it.

If we find out what the other theme is, I’ll make those suggestions too. What would you like to hear the Top 5 sing if the theme is Divas?






  1. I’d like to hear Amber sing Natalie Cole’s “Miss You Like Crazy.” Other choices: Kree–Patsy Cline’s “Crazy” or “I Fall to Pieces”;
    Janelle–Dolly Parton’s “From Here to the Moon and Back” or something that Anne Murray sang. You’re right about Candice and Angie. With the week that Candice had last week, it will be difficult to equal those performances. Haven’t a clue what Angie will sing, either. Anyway, it will be difficult to stop the “leaks,” and we’ll probably know by sometime today or early tomorrow anyway.

  2. would LOVE to hear kree sing “somebody to love”. she’s got all the power of gracie slick and then some. she would blow it right out of the water. candice doing ANYTHING by aretha is fine with me. janelle would do justice to “angie baby”. angie should sing heart’s “alone”. and amber doing celine dion is perfect. song choice plus performance will now equal winner. it’s anyone’s game to win

  3. Candice should sing any of Aretha Franklin, Alica Keys, Natalie Cole. Amber should sing any of Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston or Mary J. Blige, Kree should sing any of Talyor Dain, Barbara Streisand

  4. Buddy, I think Amber should sing ” I want to dance with somebody ” By the late great Whitney Houston. It up tempo. Cute, catchy and has great dance music with it. We already know Amber can sing her face off. She needs to bring everything she has tonight. Or she will be gone. Nigel wants Kree to win??? Nygel you have been watching So you think you can dance too long.” You are realgood there. I love that show. I think you need to save your votes or what you think for them!

  5. Can anggie please sing piano man or everything by lifehouse! She reminds me of a girl version of colton and I would mean the world if she sang that!!!
