The top 8 finalists take the stage tonight on American Idol season 11 April 4, 2012 performance night. This week’s theme is songs from the 80s and it’s another broad topic. What songs will the contestants be choosing? Will they be taking more risks and choose a song that is out of their genre?
Among the 8 remaining contestants, only Elise was born in the 80s. Most of them were born in the 90s, but for sure, they already know lots of songs from those years. What would you like the finalists to sing? We have made our list even if there are a lot of songs to choose from.
For Jessica Sanchez, we’d like to hear her sing any Madonna or Cindy Lauper songs. We’d like to hear Skylar Lane sing “If I Could Turn Back Time” for a change, Elise Testone to sing “Love Is a Battlefield” or any Queen song. For Hollie Cavanag, hope she sings “Listen To Your Hear” or “Morning Tran”. For the boys, we’d like Colton Dixon to sing “Mixed Emotions” or any Rolling Stones songs, Deandre Brackensick sing a “EVerybody Wants To Rule the World”, Joshua Ledet to sing “With Or With You” or any U2 songs and Phillip Phillips to sing “Angel” or any Bon Jovi song.
Gwen Stefani and Tonal Kanal are the mentors for tonight. Who will get the pimp spot?
