Want to see what the American Idol top 14 are performing on Sunday night? Within this article, we’ve got some of that scoop for you within!
Rest assured, we’re not going to share any spoilers of how these performances actually went (this show was pre-taped), but we do think that there’s some value in getting the excitement going right now. After all, don’t you need another reason to watch rather than Game of Thrones? We feel for the show with that kind of competition out there.
Take a look below at some of the song choices (via Mjsbigblog), alongside some of our individual thoughts all about them.
Laine Hardy, “That’s Alright Mama” – Doing Elvis is always a great choice to us — but, we’re also not a part of the younger Idol demo. Are viewers even going to remember this song?
Evelyn Cormier, “The Middle” – Love this Jimmy Eat World song, even if we don’t know how it fits with her voice altogether.
Alyssa Raghu, “She Used to Be Mine” – Love the song choice. Sara Bareilles’ music is so perfectly emotive for this show — you can make the most out of a limited amount of time.
Eddie Island, “Benny and the Jets” – Eddie’s great, but good look topping Haley Reinhart’s addition a.k.a. the definitive American Idol song.
Riley Thompson, “Suds in a Bucket” – This is the first song that we don’t know from this episode, but we’re not a huge Sara Evans fan.
Wade Cota, “Trouble” – Sure, this is a fantastic song, but the challenge here for Wade is finding a way to make this special when it’s been done a lot over the years.
Dimitrius Graham, “Perfect” – Ed Sheeran covers are a singing-show staple; we just hope this one brings something different to the table.
Madison Vandenburg, “Fallin'” – Because it’s Madison singing it, we have less of a problem with her bringing back the Alicia Keys staple to the singing show world.
Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon, “We All Fall in Love Sometimes” – This isn’t the most well-known Elton John song, but we feel like Jeremiah wouldn’t choose it unless he knew what he was doing.
Uche, “Finesse” – Bruno Mars is a fantastic performer; if we hadn’t see Uche dance before, we’d be a little more worried.
Alejandro Aranda, “One Dance” – Alejandro has earned the ability for us to trust us with every single song choice that he does.
Ashley Hess, “Fix You” – We love this song. The problem is trying to really build it up in the limited period of time in which you have to perform it here.
Laci Kaye Booth, “I Miss You” – What is it with a lot of these people performing really classic, emotive songs from the past decade or two? Love this choice, even if it’s surprising.
Walker Burroughs, “Climb Every Mountain” – Really? The song from The Sound of Music? We’ll just go with it.
