Oh my we have some interesting song picks this week. There doesn’t seem to be a theme, which is nice, so the finalists roamed the catalogs to make their choices for the Top 8 performances on Thursday night’s show.

Lot of solid choices in here. Sonika and Dalton could have some great moments with theirs. La’Porsha is going to nail it, right? Trent’s will be good, but I’d like to hear him on something more modern. Then there’s MacKenzie. Hmm. Well it’s a gamble, but he’s gotta do something unique with it so I’ll look forward to how that goes.

Check out the full list of the American Idol 2016 Top 8 song spoilers below.

La’Porsha Renae — Beyoncé’s “Halo”
MacKenzie Bourg — Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)”
Tristan McIntosh — Vince Gill’s “Go Rest High on That Mountain”
Trent Harmon — Percy Sledge’s “When A Man Loves A Woman”
Olivia Rox — Pink’s “Trouble”
Gianna Isabella — Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You”
Sonika Vaid — Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone”
Dalton Rapattoni — Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive”
Avalon Young — The Weeknd’s “Earned It”
Lee Jean — Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody”

  1. Well here’s my wish list:
    La’Porsha – At Seventeen [Janis Ian]
    Dalton – In These Arms [Bon Jovi]
    Mackensie – Perfume [The Sparks]
    Avalon – Different Drum [Stone Pony]
    Trent – Sacrifice – [Elton John]
    Lee Jean – She’s Out Of My Life [Michael Jackson]
    Olivia – Mean [Taylor Swift]
    Tristan – Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue [Crystal Gayle]
    Sonika – Colors Of The Wind [from Pocahontas]
    Gianna – Nothing
    I know some of these [most] are pretty old, but not overdone on these shows and pretty melodic.

    • love your choices better than the ones listed, especially for la’porsha, who, by the way, should win. but we all know how idol works and the pretty boy with the guitar will prevail. in the long run, most of those who didn’t win have done mighty fine for themselves. we all know who they are!

  2. When Olivia picks the perfect Celine or even sing Black Dog she will blow LaPorsha and everyone else out of the way and could win.

  3. Olivia should sing something more soulful bluesy and a little more softer her voice is too amazing to be too underrated
