Check out this week’s American Idol 13 Top 7 Song Spoilers! Supposedly, these songs were on iTunes, but I can’t find them right now.
Damn. I’m not seeing any sabotage here! Heh. The contestants chose pretty well for each other.
I’m confused as to which “Sail Away” Sam Woolf is singing. There’s the Enya song, and the Randy Newman song. Then there’s “Come Sail Away” by Styx. David Grey has a version. Maybe that’s it, but it’s kind of boring, even with a singer with the ability to emote.
Did Sam Woolf choose for Alex Preston? I can’t wait to see how Alex changes up “A Team” Or, maybe I can. Kings of Leon has never been sung on American Idol before. I’m looking forward to Caleb singing a contemporary song. KOL is rooted firmly in the blues, but with a contemporary twist, there’s potential for good stuff here. Jena Irene should sing “Creep” completely behind the piano. She could have a powerful moment. “Muckalee Creek Water” is ballady, so Dexter should do OK. Jess Meuse needs to shed her inhibitions and bring the attitude tonight when she sings “Gunpowder and Lead.”
“Gravity” could be great if CJ stays reasonably on key.
