Hey, American Idol
fans! If you can't bear the next several hours waiting for American Idol
to begin, or you're just curious to know what you'll be subjected to tonight, American Idol just tweeted
this picture of tonight's set list. It looks like they'll be taking on songs from Queen AND the odd "Contestant's Choice" category. All bets are off!
Here's the set list:
The Show Must Go On
Fat Bottomed Girls
Crazy Little Thing Called Love
I Want it All
Dance With My Father - Luther Vandross
The Climb - Miley Cyrus
Ready for Love - India Arie
Bold as Love - Jimi Hendrix
Tattoos On This Town - Jason Aldean
Assuming that they're going in the same order for both categories, I have a couple guesses as to who is singing what. At first I was like "so Skylar is singing 'The Climb'?" but then I remembered Hollie, who seems a more likely candidate. Plus, Jason Aldean is a country artist, so I'm guessing Skylar Laine is singing "I Want It All" and "Tattoos On This Town." That's odd, though, because I really would prefer to hear Skylar sing "Fat Bottomed Girls" and I'm not sure it will sit well with Hollie.
"Dance With My Father" is definitely Joshua Ledet, which means he's likely singing "The Show Must Go On" for his Queen pick. Elise seems the most likely to choose an India Arie song, as well as "Bohemian Rhapsody" which just screams "VOTE FOR ME!" and also "Last Call, Karaoke singers!"
So that leaves Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez. "Bold as Love" (and Jimi Hendrix) seems like a more Phillip choice, but I also thought "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" would be a much better choice for him than Jessica. And "Save Me" would be a better option for Jessica. Maybe they're not in the same order?
What do you think of their song choices?
