American Idol 2019 Top 8 Power List: Rank the Contestants

The song choices this week have me looking forward to tonight’s show. 

Alejandro Aranda –  Under Pressure — Hm. I wonder how Alejandro will arrange this classic?

Alyssa Raghu — Somebody to Love – One of my all-time favorite Queen songs! It’s a good choice for Alyssa.

Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon — Who Wants to Live Forever – A big, dramatic song that offers Jeremiah the opportunity to show off his vocal and emotional range? Perfect.

Laci Kaye Booth — Love of My Life – Great choice for Laci. If she performs a tender arrangement on acoustic guitar–Laci could have a moment. 

Laine Hardy — Fat Bottomed Girls – A song that’s hard to take seriously–it hasn’t really aged that well. I suppose Laine will swamp it up and make it fun. It wouldn’t have been my first choice for him.

Madison VanDenburg — The Show Must Go On – A good choice for Madison. Like Jeremiah, it will give her a chance to show off her rangy voice.

Wade Cota — We Are the Champions – I am a little dubious about this song choice. We are the Champions belongs in sports arenas–and that’s about it.

Walker Burroughs — Crazy Little Thing Called Love – A predictable song choice from Walker.  Fantasia did a terrific version of this season 3. In lesser hands, the song can come off corny. Walker needs a unique arrangement to pull it off. 

Movie Themed Duets:

Laci Kaye Booth & Laine Hardy – Jackson from Walk the Line

Alyssa Raghu & Wayne Cota – Ain’t No Mountain High Enough from Guardians of the Galaxy

Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon & Madison VanDenburg – A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman

Alejandro Aranda & Walker Burroughs – Mrs. Robinson from The Graduate
