In a totally new and different move, American Idol 2013 will feature the songs of John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Of course, I’m kidding. Not about the songs, but the new and different. We’ve seen it over and over in some form or combination, but the songs are still good and this batch of talent should find a way to make the performances fresh.
Each of the nine remaining finalists will pick a selection from the song books and do their best to make it their own and win over your votes come Wednesday night as part of the two-hour episode.
Also in the theme of Lennon and McCartney, we’ll get the Wild Card performance results where only one will survive. What? Too soon? This Wednesday the results of the Aubrey vs Charlie voting for that 11th spot on the American Idol tour is going to be announced.
While we wait for the American Idol 2013 top 9 song list to be leaked, or at least crossing our fingers for it, let’s hear your thoughts on what you’d like each of the remaining finalists to perform this week from their options.
lennon and mccartney are timeless. two of the best in the biz.
pr-i’d LOVE to hear kree sing “run for your life’. i don’t think anyone has ever done it on the show before
The real singers in the competition should cover Lennon’s later stuff. If you can’t find a great song in that library to sing you don’t belong on the show!
Lazaro should sing “The Long and Winding Road”.
Paul Jolley may try “Let it be”.
For Burnell, I think he can sing “Jealous Guy” or “Woman”.
Angela is fitted to sing “Something”.
