The American Idol Top 8 continue the battle for Candice Glover’s crown tonight (8/7c on Fox), and since it seems like the latest crop of contestants aren’t getting a ton of mentoring from Randy Jackson, the job now falls to the Idoloonie Nation. (Or at least that’s how I see it.)
I’ve gotten the ball rolling in the gallery below with assessments of the singers’ strengths and weaknesses — and some offbeat song suggestions that could push the boundaries of their artistry while still fitting their vocal ranges and personalities. (Hey, anything to make sure “Against All Odds” and “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” don’t rear their tired heads, right?)
So click through the photos below for my unsolicited advice, then hit the comments with your own tips and dream set lists for the contestants! And for all my Idol news, interviews, videos and recaps, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!
