We made it to the top 4, with two performances each, and he will be choosing TWO Rock and Roll songs. Is this theme custom made for Adam, or what? Are the possibilities making us giddy with anticipation? Why isn’t it Tuesday already?
KEEP IN MIND IT IS ROCK FROM THE 70s and 80s ONLY, some of you have been proposing Rock songs from a couple of years ago 🙂
Rock and Roll has not been a specific Idol theme until last year’s top 4. In season 5, there was Queen week (be still, my heart). Songs already done were: ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’ (Bucky), ‘We Will Rock You’ (Ace), ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ (Ke llie… no comment), ‘Innuendo’ (Daughtry), “Who Wants To Live Forever’ (Katherine), ‘Somebody to Love’ (Elliott), ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’ (Taylor), and ‘The Show Must Go On’ (Paris).
In season 6 (can’t we please erase season 6 from Idol history?), there was Bon Jovi week, where songs done included: ‘Blaze of Glory’ (Phil Stacey), ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ (Jordin). ‘This Ain’t A Love Song’ (LaKisha Jones), ‘You Give Love a Bad Name’ (Blake Lewis), ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ (Chris Richardson), and ‘Have a Nice Day’ (Melinda Doolittle).
Last year, for the final 4, they introduced Rock and Roll week, but it was called ‘Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’. Is there a difference? The top 4 had two songs each, and chose: ‘Hungry Like the Wolf’, ‘Baba O’Riley’ (David Cook), ‘Stand By Me’, ‘Love Me Tender’ (Ar chie), ‘Proud Mary’, ‘A Change is Gonna Come’ (Syesha Mercado), and ‘I Shot the Sheriff’, ‘Mr. Tambourine Man’ (Jason Castro).
Let’s have fun with this one. What should Adam sing to climb upward from that third place anomaly last week? The general consensus so far is that he should do Freddy Mercury, Zeppelin, or Guns N Roses. In my opinion, picking two songs from any of those artists will put him right back in the number one spot. I personally want to see him go all out with the makeup and glam and let loose! What do you think?
*** UPDATE: THEY WILL BE DOING ONE SOLO SONG AND TWO DUETS!!
Here are all of the pairing choices:
Fernando says: Do we all agree ADAM/ALLISON and ADAM/KRIS and NOT ADAM/DANNY? I would be extremely disappointed if they don’t put the ultimate Rock couple doing the ultimate Rock song. C’mon now!!!
Then again, could this combination give Adam and Allison a better chance on elimination night and get Kris or Danny in trouble? Who is getting eliminated next?
So many questions and possibilities this coming week… this Tuesday will be a night to remember!
