Here’s hoping American Idol fans have been using their Twitter accounts for good, not evil.
The Top 5 contestants will tackle an “America’s Request” theme next Wednesday (8/7c).
Viewers who tuned in for April 2′s Top 8 performance show might recall host Ryan Seacrest repeatedly encouraging viewers to tweet song suggestions for their favorite contestants along with “#IdolRequest.” (Naturally, the fine print under Ryan’s head reminded us that “final decisions [are] at producers’ sole discretion.”)
The remaining Season 13 contestants will reportedly receive shortlists of tunes tweeted by the Idoloonie Nation, from which they will choose two songs each.
Stoked about this idea? Do you think it’ll lead to fresh performances? Or are we fated to suffer a night of “I Have Nothing,” “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” and “Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now)”? Sound off below!
