The live shows finally begin this week (YAY) with the Top 12 girls singing on Tuesday and The Top 12 boys on Wednesday.
- After the jump, check out Top 24 song spoilers from Idol Maniac, who helped successfully spoil the Top 24 this year.
The song theme for the semi-final round will be “Hot 100 Top 10’s”, but I’m hearing the producers aren’t strictly enforcing the theme.
This year, contestants WILL be able to play instruments during their performance (Instruments were allowed during the semis Season 7, but not allowed until the Top 13 Season 8.)
Over at Idol Forums, Idol Maniac has posted lists of Top 10 songs for the years 1972-1010, Here. What do you think the Idols should sing?
Also, would anybody in the LA area like to attend the Girls dress rehearsal on Tuesday? Give me a holla at mjsbigblog @ gmail dot com. I know somebody with an extra ticket.
Are you planning to attend Idol dress rehearsals this year? Once the Top 12 begins, they are fairly easy to get into. If so, I need your help! I need reporters willing to call me right after dress with song spoilers. Contact me if you are interested!
OH. Don’t forget to sign up for my American Idol 9 pool. There will be prizes. Sign up HERE.
