We have the American Idol 2014 spoilers for the Top 10 song choices and there are some surprising picks from the finalists this week. We aren’t sure to whether we should be excited about some of the American Idol spoilers song choices for the Top 10, or terrified at the potential calamity ahead.
* UPDATE: Click here for our full recap of the Top 10 performances show with videos!
Last week on American Idol season 13, we had better performances from most of the finalists than we’d seen in weeks. We can only hope that this week’s very contemporary theme will give us even better wow moments from the Top 10 contestants.
In case you missed the American Idol 2014 spoilers for the song theme this week, the Top 10 finalists will be performing songs from any of the Billboard Top 10 charts from 2010 to present. So the contestants had a huge amount of material to choose from, as they have pretty much all season so far. Plus, we were guaranteed that no one was going to escape having to show off how they could handle a contemporary hit song.
Here are the American Idol spoilers for the Top 10 songs we have so far, courtesy of The Idol Pad. We’ll bring you the rest as soon as they are revealed!
Alex Preston – “Story Of My Life” by One Direction
– This could be a very interesting choice for Alex. It gives him the chance to compete with Sam for the teen/tween girl vote, and if he gives it his own unique twist, still could give him cred as an artist as well.
CJ Harris – “Invisible” by Hunter Hayes
– We feel maybe this was kind of a safe choice for CJ. However, it’s a beautiful song and should suit his voice nicely. If he can really put an emotional 0omph behind it, he could shine.
Caleb Johnson – “The Edge Of Glory” by Lady Gaga
– Caleb is a crazy man. First he takes on Adele, now he goes after Lady Gaga? We can’t wait to see this insanity. It will either be amazing, or horrifying.
Dexter Roberts – “Cruise” by Florida Georgia Line
– At this point in the competition, it would be hard for Dexter to go wrong with this kind of song. However, we feel like he maybe needs to shake things up and give his style a little more of a unique twist if he wants to win this season.
Jena Irene Asciutto – “Clarity” by Zedd/Foxes
– We’ve seen this song perhaps too often on reality TV singing competitions lately. Michele Chamuel absolutely killed it on The Voice. So Jena is going to have to blow this out to really stand out, and that could be difficult.
MK Nobilette – “(F****n’) Perfect” by Pink
– This could be a saving grace song for MK, or the performance that finally really does get her booted. Honestly, MK has been so nervous and inconsistent on the show, we’re just not even sure how to guess how she’ll do with this difficult song.
Sam Woolf – “We Are Young” by Fun/Janelle Monáe
– This song choice kind of makes us cranky. After last week, Sam needed to do something fresher, but this is maybe a little too lightweight to make us take him seriously as an artist. Plus, half the song is just mostly talking fast and not really even singing.
Jessica “Jess” Meuse – “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster The People
We frankly hate this song considering it is about kids shooting other kids, but this could be a good pick for Jessica if she rocks it out. If she gets too introspective and internal with it, however, this song choice could backfire.
Majesty Rose York – “Wake Me Up” by Avicii/Aloe Blacc
To be honest, we’d call this kind of a boring song choice for Majesty. It’s more of a ‘talking’ song than one that really shows off your vocals. Until it gets to the chorus anyway. We’ll be curious to see if she slows it down to give it more of a ballad feel. Still, safer might be better for Majesty after last week.
Malaya Watson – T”When I was Your Man” by Bruno Mars
It’s always a little odd when a girl sings a song written from a guy’s point of view. This could be a good song for Malaya though if she keeps it softer and smooth, rather than going full tilt belt on it. That’s when she starts to sound like she’s screaming and that’s never good.
I am pretty sure, Caleb would kill “The Edge of Glory”! 😀
I hope Malaya Watson will sing Titanium!
I dont think this song will suit Malaya’s voice. Malaya should be genius enough in choosing her song, or else, she might get eliminated. But I really want her to stay, so she must choose the right song for her! 😀
Did you really need to put the f word in your article? Is she doing that version of it, or the clean version? A few years ago, I remember when bad words weren’t allowed on this site in the comments section and I certainly never saw them written by the authors.
Thanks for catching that, Julie. I’ve removed it from the article.
Thank you, Matthew, I really appreciate it!
Michele chamuel did not kill clarity on the voice, listen to it again- not good.
I am confident Jena will annihilate that song- can’t wait to hear how she changes it up, she’s a true artist!
I agree with you. Michele’s version was totally overrated!!!
Wow, these bloggers really hate Jena! Never gives her the praise she deserves and is always saying she’ll do bad or hopefully she doesn’t blow it. Wth. She’s the best girl there and everyone knows it.
Hey guys,this is a free country.This writer is entitled to her opinion. She just happens to be in the minority.I believe she will change her view following Wednesday’s performance.
What part of a saying a song has been sung a lot before on TV singing shows is hateful? What does that even have anything to do with Jena?
I agree Matt,Jena will do a great job with this song. The melody suits her voice range and she will kill it.
I’m sure she’ll do great too. The author was simply pointing out Jena has a challenge ahead of her by going with a song that’s been done enough to have the bar raised on it. Nothing hateful in that observation.
Jena should sing something from “Heart” I think she would kill it. Maybe Barracuda. I know this isn’t the week to sing it, but I would love to hear her sing it at some point.
Jena’s always been great. She’s just not had a wonderful, breakout and memorable performance until last week. She was never bad, just forgettable. Aside from perhaps Caleb, she has been the most consistently good singer. I doubt she’s won over enough fans to win or even get in the top 3 at the moment. But if she keeps up with how she did last week, she very well could make a big time comeback.
She is already back.She very well may be a serious final 4 candidate after Wednesday night.This is March Madness,you know.
The song Demons by Imagine Dragons or Say Something by A Great Big World will definitely make Malaya a front runner. I hope she does sing one of these songs.
Just looking at some of the song choices it looks like it’s going to be another boring night!
Is this the order?
We don’t know about performance order. Could be, but maybe not.
It’ll be more exciting if Caleb will be singing a Bruno Mars song, like “Gorilla”. But still, Caleb will definitely perform awesome with his song choice!
I had to smile at the notion that any song would give Alex a chance to compete with Sam for the teen/tween vote. For starters the young girls in my sphere think Sam is a drip. And nothing would make them look twice at Alex whom they refer to as The Missing Chipmunk. I’m not saying anything against either singer’s potential, but girls are visual and these guys don’t appeal.
Malaya should sing home by stephanie mills she’ll kill it
I did wish Jena was allowed to sing another Hayley song, and do “Stay the Night” by Zedd, but I know Harry would be rather upset about those lyrics. I wasn’t familiar with “Clarity” prior to hearing it today from other contestants on other singing shows, but I believe Jena will make everyone remember her version of it–she has that ability to make every single song her own, and memorable! Everyone better get on Google before 10am tomorrow and vote for Jena Irene!
Also, I agree with whoever said Jena should sing Heart, I would just love to hear her sing “Alone” and nail that chorus!
At this stage, it appears Malaya has the most powerful voice – if she can continue to perform as she did last week – she may go all the way.
Mk is horrible. How that girl that shows zero facial expressions and the main issue, she cannot sing. For her to have gone this far is insane. I hope she gets the boot this round. She has not talent at all!!!
