This week, R & B artist, Alicia Keys, will mentor the seven remaining singers of American Idol Season 9
The theme this week is Inspirational Songs and you can find the list of available songs over at MJSBigBlog.Com. The one song that flew out at me was Carole King’s, “You’ve Got A Friend”.
Maybe Crystal will go back to her keyboard and deliver a soulful, bluesy rendition of this number. I can’t see anyone else capable of performing this number and it just seems so logical in my mind.
Also, upon reading the list, it confirmed in my mind that Katie Stevens did indeed select “Over The Rainbow” as her Top 7 number. She performed this song so beautifully on the Ellen Show earlier today.
But let’s not be sad folks! Both Top 9 eliminated contestants, Katie Stevens and Andrew Garcia, have tweeted that they will be part of the 2-hour Idol Gives Back extravaganza on Wednesday.
If anyone knows if the entire Top 12 are coming back for an encore, give me shout here in the comments section and I will update this blog topic ASAP.
I am hoping that Alicia Keyes can inject some soulful inspiration into the remaining singers -Aaron Kelly, Casey James, Crystal Bowersox, Lee Dewyze, Michael Lynche, Siobhan Magnus and Tim Urban. She is such a gifted artist and these singers are so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to learn from her.
Best of luck to the Top 7 Finalists and feel welcome to add your comments before, during and after the live telecast on Tuesday, April 20th.
