What will the American Idol 2021 Top 7 sing this week? Now we know, via Billboard magazine! Sunday’s show boasts two themes: Songs from the Coldplay catalog, and Mother’s Day dedications. Once again, American Idol will air coast to coast across all time zones, allowing viewers to vote simultaneously. TWO singers will be eliminated by the end of the night.

Notably, no singer chose the ubiquitous Coldplay weeper, “Fix You.” Maybe the band didn’t clear it, forcing the singers to choose creatively. Frontman Chris Martin will mentor each contestant before their performance.

For the Mother’s Day dedication songs, three singers chose original compositions to sing, including Caleb Kennedy, Chayce Beckham and Hunter Metts. It should be an interesting night of music!

Additionally, Coldplay will perform their newest single, “Higher Power.” That’s a ton of music to fit into two hours (I checked. The show is only two hours long, despite what Billboard posted in the article.)

American Idol airs Sunday May 9 at 8 pm ET/7 PM CT/6 pm MT/5 pm PT
