When music legends agree to appear on “American Idol,” the producers probably don’t question the congruity of which giant appears on which theme week. So let’s ignore the fact that it’s British week and celebrate the fact that The E Street Band’s Little Steven Van Zandt is lending his expertise to the Top 5 as they take on tunes from across the pond.
And just what are Hollie Cavanagh, Skylar Laine, Joshua Ledet, Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez singing this week? It’s not clear which songs belong to which singer, but the official “American Idol” Twitter posted band leader Ray Chew‘s set list, giving us a glimpse of all the songs before they’re sung on tonight’s (May 2) episode.
“Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” The Temptations
“The Letter,” The Box Tops
