Top 4 – Rock Week – What Should the Idols Sing?

Not only do we have Guns N Roses and Velvet Revolver guitarist, Slash mentoring and promising all sorts of surprises for Rock Week, but rumor has it the Idols will be singing duets along with their solos in competition. A first for the Idol stage.

Rock Week this year means classic rock from the 70’s and 80’s.   What do you want the Idols to sing?

Adam Lambert – Queen seems inevitable, doesn’t it? Bowie probably wouldn’t release his music..
Allison Iraheta – “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac – I bet a lot of you are hoping she rocks out this week, but I think she’d kill this song. In a good way.
Kris Allen – He could pull off the Grateful Dead (I hope not–I hate them) or some So Cal rock like the Eagles or Jackson Browne.   But knowing Kris, he’ll probably pick something crazy and re-arrange it beautifully.
Danny Gokey – Doobie Brothers, Huey Lewis and the News, Stevie Winwood–or any rock that’s got a soul vibe.


Adam/Allison – “Gimme Shelter” by the Rolling Stones. Oh, hell yeah.
Danny/Kris –   Something in the soul/gospel vein. Both worship leaders–they shouldn’t have trouble finding common ground.
