American Idol XIII Top 8 Redux Song Spoilers

The American Idol Top 8 Redux Spoilers were revealed on Amazon, of all places! And in some cases, the Idols made song choices I begged them not to do! It’s like the old days, with the kids choosing songs that have been done to death on Idol, in some cases. Yay. At least no one is singing “Against All Odds.”

David Cook worked with the kids earlier in the week. We’ll see if he had an impact!

Dexter Roberts – Keep Your Hands to Yourself by Georgia Satellites (CORNY Cornball. Another boring anthem from Dexter). – Download from iTunes
Alex Preston – Every Breath You Take by Sting (Be careful flipping a beloved song Alex. Don’t mess with it TOO much) – Download from iTunes
Caleb Johnson – Faithfully by Journey (Sigh. I SAID NO JOURNEY CALEB! Heh) – Download from iTunes
Sam Woolf – Time after Time by Cyndi Lauper – (Noooo. If Sam sings this like he’s reading the phone book, it’ll be a disaster) – Download from iTunes
Jena Irene – I Love Rock n Roll by Joan Jett (Jenna could pull this off. She should front the band like she did a couple of weeks ago. She was really in her element then.)   – Download from iTunes
Jessica Meuse – Call Me by Blondie (Blondie. Yes. This song? It’s not a great competition song. Wondering if Jess will do the rap part…) – Download from iTunes
CJ Harris – Free Fallin by Tom Petty (Eh. Potential for off key AND dull singing from CJ) – Download from iTunes
Malaya Watson – Through the Fire by Chaka Khan – Oh Malaya. The potential for oversinging is high. – Download from iTunes


The Girl is Mine by Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney
It’s Only Love by Bryan Adams and Tina Turner
I Knew You Were Waiting for Me by Aretha Franklin and George Michael
Islands in the Stream by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton

Apparently, last week’s list was in performance order
