Top 5 Theme is “Rat Pack” Standards, Taylor Hicks Returns to American Idol

According to Top Idol, who has a super-reliable source out in Los Angeles, The theme for next week’s Top 5 is Jazz Standards…

ETA: and the actual theme is even more specific… From the FOX press release:

Next week, the Top 5 finalists ‘ Kris Allen, Matt Giraud, Danny Gokey, Allison Iraheta and Adam Lambert ‘ take the stage again Tuesday, April 28 (8:00-9:01 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) to perform standards made famous by members of the original Rat Pack, a group of legendary performers that included Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.

More songs for really really really old people! And that song list will be a short one. No word on whether the kids will switch to a two-song format…

Plus, the freaking Powers That Be do the right thing and invite Season 5 winner, Taylor Hicks back to the Idol stage for Wednesday’s results show to perform his next single, the most excellent “Seven Mile Breakdown”   from his new, independently produced album, The Distance.
