This in from AmericanIdol.Com:

Strip the lights, kill the fog machine, back the trusses off the stage. We’re trading that extravagant arena feel for something a lot more intimate this week. The Top 5 (aka your Idol Tour 2015 lineup) will be delivering two songs each, selections that define them…and define the judges’ hometowns, as well. 

Heading into the homestretch here, we’re eager to learn even more about these performers we’ve grown to love. 

And that open-hearted journey of discovery isn’t limited to Wednesday night (at 8/7c on FOX), either. All week at AmericanIdol.com we’ll be bringing you fun, candid Top 5 material you won’t find anywhere else”.

Okee dokee American Idol. We see where you are going with this. This whole “intimate” vibe is getting Idol fans ready for a more “intimate” American Idol Top 5 Tour.  

Nice play except for one thing. The fans miss the Top 10.  Ya – they do. They want a Top 10 tour. But money speaks, I guess, and that ship sailed a long time ago. 

So, there better be some real magic on that stage this week or the tour will surely be a bust. Why?  Because some truly innovative and exciting artists – Quassim,  Quentin and Joey – have left the building. 

And, more than ever, we need to see a group number from these singers. What ever happened to those?  Instead of trying to squeeze in multiple 90 second songs, the singers should be singing full length songs plus a group number. Because, at the end the day, these singers have to exhibit charismatic interaction in order for this tour to be deemed a success.

American Idol Top 5 Performance and Results Show airs on Wednesday, April 29th at 8:00 PM on Fox.  

Do you think Rayvon will be in the Bottom 2 this week?  If so, who will join him?   That guy is pretty resilient, isn’t he?  I have to hand it to him. He thrives under pressure. 

Comments are now open for business.
