The finish line is in sight and the remaining contestants couldn’t want it more! Next week, American Idol‘s Top 4 embark on an interesting double theme: California Dreamin’ and ‘Songs I Wish I Had Written.’ Jennifer Lopez and David Cook are set to perform on next week’s results show. Cook will perform a brand new single called “The Last Song I’ll Write for You,” while a pre-taped Lopez performance will air.
So, it’s time to get the thinkin’ caps on. This theme is pretty wide open. It could mean anything; time to speculate!
Via press release:
Tonight, the Top Four Finalists were revealed – Hollie Cavanagh, Joshua Ledet, Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez. One of them will be crowned the next AMERICAN IDOL! After America cast a season-high of nearly 60 million votes for their favorite finalists, it also was revealed tonight that Skylar Laine had received the fewest number of votes and was eliminated from the competition.
With only three performance shows left in the season, tune in next week, Wednesday, May 9 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), when the Top Four return to the IDOL stage to sing for America’s votes on a “California Dreamin’”– themed performance show.
Don’t miss the live results show the following night, Thursday, May 10 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), when the Top Three finalists are announced and get set for their hometown visits to see family, friends and fans. In addition, global superstar and AMERICAN IDOL judge, Jennifer Lopez, will perform her hit new song “Dance Again.” Season Seven AMERICAN IDOL winner David Cook also returns to the IDOL stage to perform “The Last Song I’ll Write For You.”
