So, last week’s Top 13 show was – interesting! Lots of twists and turns and technical glitches and vocal issues.
I don’t know – I find these singers very green this season and, with Harry Connick on board, I was expecting more. Much more! Much much more!
However, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, I will state that it is early on in the season and I am sure we are in for more surprises down the road, some good, some bad – with hopefully more of the former than the latter.
I am hoping that Michael Orland, Dorian Holley and Rickey Minor – Idol’s musical triumvirate – can work some magic via their prolific music skills and expertise.
Hopefully these young singers have banished the butterflies and can maintain a stable momentum during their performances this week and beyond.
This week the theme revolves around Home. The Top 12, comprised of Ben Briley, C.J. Harris, Jena Irene, Caleb Johnson, Jessica Meuse, MK Nobilette, Emily Piriz, Alex Preston, Dexter Roberts, Majesty Rose, Malaya Watson and Sam Woolf, will perform songs that represent their home. Song selections that pay homage to their home state and/or were popular during their childhood will form the basis of their song selections.
And, Philip Philipps, the American Idol who sang his ubiquitous “Home” number to mega success, will grace the American Idol stage on the Results Show on Thursday, March 6th. It will be great to see and hear him again.
The Performance Show airs on Wednesday, March 5th at 8:00 PM Eastern on Fox.
