American Idol April 18, 2012 Performance 4/18/12 Call Numbers

The top 7 will take the stage once again for the American Idol season 11 April 18, 2012 live performance show. This time, they will be singing twice tonight performing songs from now and then. We have been disappointed for the past week with some of the song choices. Will tonight be different?

With the theme as “Now and Then”, the top 7 finalists will be singing a Billboard number one hit from 2000 to 2012 and a “soul” song from the previous decade. Do you have any suggestions on what could be the perfect song choices for our idol hopefuls?

With the topic getting broader each week, it’s hard to make a list of what we’d like the top 7 to sing. But we will still try even if we know there’s the least chance that it will be performed.

For Jessica Sanchez, our picks are “My Life Would Suck Without You” by Kelly Clarkson and “Angel of Mine” by Monica. For Hollie Cavanagh, our picks are “Fallin'” by Alicia Keys and “How Do I Live” by LeAnn Rimes. For Skylar Laine, our picks are “Last Friday Night” by Katy Perry and “I Don’t Want To Wait” by Paula Cole while our picks for Elise Testone to sing are “Grenade” or “Just The Way You Are” by Bruno Mars and “Heaven” by Bryan Adams.

Now for the boys, our pick for Colton Dion are “We Are Young” by Fun and “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz. For Joshua Ledet, our picks are “U Got It Bad” by Usher and “Say You, Say Me” by Lionel Richie. For Phillip Phillips, our picks are “Moves Like Jagger” by Maroon 5 and “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” by Simple Minds.

Those are just our wishlist and the slightest chance that they will be performed in zero. What about you? Any song choices for any of the top 7?

Anyway, who will be performing last tonight? Will it be Jessica? Will it be Colton?

The numbers for you to vote will be provided here. In the meantime, please do follow us on Twitter, add us on Google Plus or join us on Facebook while waiting for it. The American Idol 4/18/12 call and text numbers as well as the song choices for each idol hopeful will be posted.

Update: Spoilers – there will be two songs by Alicia Keys, two songs by Lady Gaga and two songs by Marvin Gaye tonight. Though not one from our picks will be performed, we are happy with the songs. Colton Dixon will sing “Bad Romance”. What do you think?
