FOX has announced the Top 9 finalists will be performing under the Idol theme of “I’m With The Band” where they’ll be the front singer for Idol’s house band with Rickey Minor.

So I’m guessing this means the band will be more prominently featured behind the singers rather than off to the side since they already do perform as the lead singer to Rickey and his band each week. We’ll have to wait and see for sure what that does to their arrangement.

As for the song picks the Top 9 finalists will get to sing their favorite hits. Awesome. American Idol 2014 continues to steer clear of the terrible, narrow and awkward theme restrictions and keeps the song book wide open.

Let’s get ready and start the song recommendations right now. What do you want to hear your favorite Idol performer sing next Wednesday night? Share your thoughts below!
