American Idol Host Ryan Seacrest Reveals Top 8 Week Song Genre

Ryan Seacrest

Another week, another song set. American Idol 2013 host Ryan Seacrest reveals the Top 8 finalists song genre will be “The Music of Motor Town,” or Motown if you’d prefer. Yes, we’ve heard it a lot. A lot a lot. But that’s okay because the niche is deep and rich in songs and should provide for some great performances.

We’re anxious to see which of the remaining eight finalists goes big and which go safe, but no matter what we still expect a boy to go.

Early next week our song recommendations will hit the site and we can start going over who should handle what great Motown hits and which ones they should steer clear from performing. Of course that shouldn’t stop your ideas from flowing right now here on the site. So let’s hear it. What should the American Idol 2013 Top 8 perform on Wednesday, March 27th when they return for another two-hour show on FOX.

In the meantime, browse the Top 8 photo gallery and view your favorites as a ‘vote’ for the best. We’ll be able to check and see who is getting the most attention and likely your votes each week.





  1. This is just what I think. Just my opinion. The beatles songs are VERY HARD to sing. I never cared anthing about them. Some people really like them. And that is OK. Everyone likes certain things.And that is their right. But I mean the poor contestants all were having a had time with the song choices they had.

    • The Beatles have hundreds of songs ranging from easy to hard. Also the Beatles theme is a repeated theme for this show since they are the most successful pop group of all time. I think Jimmie’s point was if you want to be successful on this type of show do your homework before the live shows start in order to reduce your odds of looking like an idiot and possibly getting yourself sent home. If you do your prep you have a better chance picking the right song.

      • When Jimmy said he was a little put off by the fact that Burnell didn’t know “Let It Be”, I completely agreed. Hard to believe. These people want to be professional singers and they aren’t familiar with the Beatles or one of their biggest hits? Come on, really! Yes, Paul McCartney was in another band before Wings!

  2. Who got Angie to change her 1970’s hairdo? She really looks current now.
