Top 7 (Again!) – Disco Fever – What Should the Idols Sing?

After a mentor dropped off the schedule, Disco became this week’s last-minute theme.

Seasons 2, 3 and 4 all featured a Disco theme.   Except, Season 4’s theme was called “70’s Dance Music”–perhaps to allow Bo Bice some leeway to sing “Vehicle” by the Ides of March.

Past Disco themes have provided some entertaining train wrecks.

Carrie Underwood’s “MacArthur Park” was easily her worst performance of Season 4. Season 2’s Josh Gracin performed an embarrassingly bad “Celebration”.   And who could forget Season 3 contestant, Jasmine Trias’s, tragic and hilarious “It’s Raining Men”?

So, considering the history, we’re due for at least one spectacular misstep. And I think anyone who isn’t Adam Lambert is capable of delivering it.

Here’s a list of disco songs I dug up: Last FM – 70’s Disco Tracks

I’ll edit in my list in a bit. What do YOU think the Idols should sing?

  • Adam Lambert – Something by Chic. Or, if he could get away it, some Grace Jones – VIDEO
  • Allison Iraheta – “If I Can’t Have You” by Yvonne Elliman – I like this for Allison-she could slow up the beginning and go for a big finish – VIDEO
  • Anoop Desai – The smooth sounds of Earth, Wind and Fire for Noop – VIDEO
  • Danny Gokey – “Hold on to My Love” by Jimmy Ruffin – It’s vaguely Motownish, so it could be a good fit for Danny. VIDEO – Although I’d die to see him do this. Pelvic thrusts FTW.
  • Kris Allen – I’d bet my hat he ends up with the Bee Gees –VIDEO
  • Lil Rounds – “The Best of My Love” by the Emotions – Not sure anything will help Lil this week, but she might avoid a trainwreck with this one. – VIDEO
  • Matt Giraud – The Average White Band would be right in Matt’s soul sweet spot, if he can get away with it. – VIDEO
