The Top 7 on "American Idol" will be performing songs from the 21st century and I am eager. This is the theme which could go really well or really badly.
Why? Because of the two most important words on "Idol": song choice. I can almost guarantee that someone is going to select a song just because they love it and it's not going to go over as well as they hope.Plus, a cover is still just a cover unless it is super-duper amazing, and the more recent the song the harder it will be to erase the memory of the original.
But I am really going to need three of the folks pictured above to start doing some for real judging, and not just telling all of the contestants how wonderful and amazing they are or could be. As we get closer to the final two, I would like to see more growth and the only way that will happen will be with some constructive critisicm.
Do you agree?
