American Idol is headed to band camp!
OK, not really. But (as first reported by TVLine), when the Season 13 Top 9 take the stage next Wednesday (8/7c on Fox) they’ll be serving as lead singers for musical director Rickey Minor and his posse under a theme titled “I’m With the (Band)!”
Obviously, that musical umbrella is a pretty broad one, but we’re sincerely hoping the remaining vocalists will look for “tunes” (as HCJ likes to say) that meet the following critera:
1. Haven’t been done to death/done brilliantly on Idol
2. Might surprise a large portion of the viewing audience
3. Give an opportunity to really interact with the band, dig deep vocally and have a “moment moment” (as Mariah Carey liked to say)
With that in mind, here’s my dream Top 9 set list:
OK, your turn. What’s your dream set list for “I’m With the Band!” Week? Sound off in the comments!
