After last Thursday’s non-elimination, American Idol takes a second shot at Top 4 Performance Night this Wednesday (8/7c on Fox), and the theme is one worth getting excited about.
Yes, folks, Amber Holcomb, Kree Harrison, Candice Glover and Angie Miller will be tackling a “Now & Then” theme — one song from the “Standards” category and one that’s been released (or on the charts) in 2013.
Below are my dream set-list selections. Check ’em out, then hit the comments with your own suggestions:
Candice Glover: LaBelle’s version of Cole Porter’s “Miss Otis Regrets”
Kree Harrison: Annie Lennox’s version of “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye”
Angie Miller: Carly Simon’s version of “Hurt”
Amber Holcomb: Ella Fitzgerald’s version of “Lullabye of Birdland”
HITS OF 2013 (can be a 2012 release, but must have still been charting this year)
Candice Glover: Anna Kendrick’s “Cups” (AKA Pitch Perfect‘s “When I’m Gone”)
Kree Harrison: The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey”
Angie Miller: : Little Mix’s “Wings”
Amber Holcomb: Carrie Underwood’s “Two Black Cadillacs”
Your turn. What songs do you want the Top 4 to cover for “Standards” and “Hits of 2013″? Sound off below!
