The Top 7* will take the stage for ’80s Week, TVLine has learned exclusively, continuing a Season 13 trend of broad themes that give contestants plenty of leeway in song selection. (*Of course, if the Judges’ Save is used during tonight’s results telecast, it’ll be Top 8 redux.)
During yesterday’s performance show, host Ryan Seacrest repeatedly encouraged viewers to tweet song suggestions for their favorite contestants along with “#IdolRequest,” a strong hint that the set list for an upcoming episode will be placed in the hands of the Idoloonie Nation. (Naturally, the fine print under Ryan’s head reminded us that “final decisions [are] at producers’ sole discretion.”)
Are you excited about ’80s Week on Idol? (How could you not be?) And what other themes would you like to see before the season ends? Sound off in the comments!
