American Idol 2012 Top 7 finalists are reminding me of something. Ah yes, last week’s Top 7 finalists! After last night’s save of Jessica Sanchez by the American Idol judges we’ll be seeing the same group of finalists take to the stage and compete for your votes. This time around though, the performance show is going to be even bigger!
Nigel Lythgoe took to Twitter last night and revealed some exciting news. Perhaps in a move to give the finalists an extra chance at picking the right song we won’t be hearing just one performance next Wednesday:
The contestants are singing 2 songs each next week. Now the ‘save’ has been used we have 14 songs on the show! Wow!!

Fourteen songs on the next American Idol 2012? That’s fantastic news and I’m sure fans will agree that more is better when it comes to hearing from their favorite finalist.
I’d expect a double elimination next week to make up for last night’s reprieve, but that’s yet to be officially confirmed. We’re also still waiting on what the theme will be. I’m hoping we’ll get more of the modern theme as that was far more entertaining than a night of “songs from the 50’s” or some other nonsense. What theme would you like to hear the American Idol Top 7 take on next week?
