Previous American Idol spoilers revealed that producers are refreshing and updating the song list for season 13. Fans have been begging for years for the show to give the singers a wider variety of choices, especially of more modern day hits. Well, we have been lucky enough to get our hands on a copy of the American idol 2014 spoilers for the Hollywood Week round 1 approved song list and we’re happy to say, it looks like they finally listened!
Some of the specific recent hit selections performed by contestants during the a cappella round in Hollywood Week include:”1, 2, 3, 4″ by Fiest (Majesty Rose York), “Say Something” by Ian Axel (Spencer Lloyd), “Scream and Shout” by will.i.am and Britney Spears (Alex Preston), and “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Ray Dalton (Kenzie Hall).
Scanning over the full Hollywood Week American Idol 2014 song list leaked by The Idol Pad, we see a LOT more modern selections of all varieties, from top Billboard chart makers over the past few years to more obscure, cult-hit songs from more indie/less mainstream musicians. There are still plenty of classic songs on the list too, but the selection of modern-era music has been expanded and ramped up.
