The final 4 “American Idol” singers of Season 11 had their work cut out for them this week choosing songs for the two seemingly incongruous themes, California Dreamin’ and “Songs you wish you wrote.” Now, the official set list of the May 9 performance show has been revealed, and it’s full of some surprising choices.
While there are so few singers left, it’s still a little difficult to figure out who’s singing what. Jessica Sanchez seems like an Etta James kind of girl, which means Journey and Credence Clearwater Revival are going to Hollie Cavanagh, Joshua Ledet or Phillip Phillips, which could be quite interesting. The “songs you wish you wrote” choices seem a little clear cut, and it appears they’ll be dueting by gender again. Take a look at the set list and let us know who you think will sing what!
“Have You Ever Seen the Rain,” Credence Clearwater Revival
“Steal Away,” Etta James
“You Raise Me Up,” Josh Groban
Songs you wish you wrote:
“And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going,” Jennifer Holliday
“I Can’t Make You Love Me,” Bonnie Raitt
“Volcano,” Damien Rice
“It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World,” James Brown
“This Love,” Maroon 5
“Eternal Flame,” The Bangles
