American Idol: 10 Dream Theme Nights!
Nigel Lythgoe needs our help! The American Idol executive producer took to Twitter late last month asking his followers for theme-night suggestions, but the brainstorm session hasn’t exactly yielded the most creative results thus far. To that end, I’ve whipped up a gallery of 10 Dream Theme Nights — a few of which I’ve been advocating for seven or eight seasons now — for your perusal. Check ‘em out, then second my nominations in the comments, or share your own fresh ideas! And for all my Idol news, interviews, and recaps, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!
Bring in a group of a dozen or so A-list songwriters — think Kara DioGuardi, Ne-Yo, Ryan Tedder — and have them pitch new and existing material to the contestants. What better way to find out which of our Idol hopefuls has the ability to choose and deliver the hits of tomorrow?
