American Idol 12 Top 5 Song Spoilers *UPDATED*

Nigel Lythgoe is tweeting out song spoilers. I’m going to begin a post and update it as more info arrives.

The themes this week are “Divas” and “Birth Year”

Nigel Lythgoe gave away  one of Candice’s song choices when he tweeted “@PaulaAbdul wait until you hear Candice singing your song “Straight Up” on #americanidol this week. I’ll bet you’ll love it.”  Must be a Diva song. “Straight Up” was released in 1988. Candice was born in 1989

Also, he tweeted an obvious hint about Kree’s choice, “#Kree is so good “She Talks to Angels.” Kree was born in 1990, the same year The Black Crowe’s “She Talks to Angels” was released.
