The Idols were in Las Vegas this weekend, taping their mentoring sessions with Andrew Lloyd Webber at the Venetian hotel.
This week’s theme is songs from the Andrew Lloyd Webber catalog.
There is speculation that Jason Castro might sing “Memories” from the musical Cats. Will David Cook sing something from Jesus Christ Superstar? According to Miles Siggins, on the TV Guide channel Idol Wrap, David wanted to wear a full suit this week, but he and Miles compromised on a suit and jacket look. Hm.
What do you think the Idols should sing? I’ll post my list in a bit. But in the meantime, post yours!
ETA: There are some great lists in the thread. I’m going to leave the picking to y’all who know what you are talking about. I will say, I’ve been listening to these songs on Rhapsody. Brooke White and Jason Castro have the biggest challenge ahead of them, as many of these songs have big ranges and are difficult to sing. I’ll also say that ALW could give Syesha Mercado yet another change to overstep the bounds of her singing range if she’s not careful. David Cook, David Archuleta and Carly Smithson could all have moments Tuesday night if they pick their songs carefully.
But who knows? The guys pwnd the girls with Mariah Carey. At this point, it’s anybody’s game!
