After several weeks of incredibly general song themes, our American Idol 2014 spoilers tell us the Top 11 will have something a little more specific to work with this week. Instead of wide-open themes like “This Is Me” and “Home,” the Top 11 will have to perform something on Wednesday night for the theme “Songs From the Cinema.”
American Idol 2014 producers said pre-season that the contestants would have more choice about what they got to sing this year. With song themes like we’ve been having so far, it looks like they are sticking true to their word. Although, honestly, we’re starting to wonder if that is a good thing. The finalists have had every opportunity to select music that would make them sound their best, and a lot of them keep making really terrible song choices.
We can only hope that with a theme like “Songs From the Cinema,” we will end up with some big, powerful ballads that will give us some Jennifer Lopez-style “goosies.” If contestants like MK Nobilette, Ben Briley and some of the others don’t pull out a huge WOW moment this week, their days left on the show are likely to be very short indeed.
What song theme would you like to see the American Idol 2014 finalists do next?
