American Idol 11 Top 6 – Queen Theme – Song Spoilers
It’s that time again! Let’s see some song spoilers for tonight’s show! The American Idol Top 6 are taking on Queen, plus a song of their choosing. As expected, American Idol tweeted out the setlist for the performances. Well, the list…looks interesting.
They even omitted the song name and band for one of the contestant choices. Hmm. All of the Queen songs I recognize — which could be a good thing or bad thing.
Take a look:
“Show Must Go On” -Elise/Jessica?
“Fat Bottomed Girls” -Skylar?
“Bohemian Rhapsody” -Elise/Jessica?
“Save Me” -Hollie?
“Crazy Little Thing Called Love” - Phillip?
“I Want It All” -Joshua?
“Dance with My Father” by Luther Vandross -Joshua?
“The Climb” by Miley Cyrus -Hollie?
“Ready for Love” by India.Arie -Jessica?
“Bold as Love” by Jimi Hendrix - Elise?
“The ____” by the ___ ___ Band - ???
“Tattoos on This Town” by Jason Aldean Skylar?
Hmm. What is the omitted song? A surprise for us?
Omitted Song Ideas: Dave Matthews Band, Steve Miller Band, Zac Brown Band

Got Something to Add?
All the girls are in trouble tonight but it's certain: Philip deserves to leave! If you are a fan of any of the women left then you need to work your fingers to the bone. There is certainly a good chance that any one of them are going home. Jessica had an amazing performance in "Dance with My Father" (song of the night for me) but a rather mixed one with "Bohemian Rhapsody". Elise rocked the Hendrix song but not a lot of people appreciate music like that. He Queen song was just okay as well. Hollie had the pimp spot and an outstanding performance in "The Climb" but I think her Queen song, like Elise's was just okay for her non-fans. If I had the choose the girl that's most in trouble, I would say Skylar. Say what you will about her performances tonight but they were lacking and not on point. Her second song was more of the same but her Queen song was the opposite of stellar.
As for Joshua, amazing second song, awful Queen rendition. Good luck to these girls and please let Philip go the hell home after those atrocious two renditions of "Fat Bottomed Girls" and "Stone". I really wanted to like him but there is just no helping it. He was awful. Just awful.
Funny how people react to song choices when in fact, as Colton mentioned in his interview, they are made to choose only from 1-3 pages of songs. Its not like they can always sing the songs they want to sing. Let them sing first.
Remember Jimmy wants Jessica to sing younger artist's songs so she was probably encouraged to do The Climb.
I know Elise probably isn't doing "Ready for Love" but oh god the eargasm I would have would be too much to handle.
If Jessica sings Ready for Love, another slow/lazy song. she sure is going home... well fans are in full force. haha But I cant wait for Elise to sing Queen...
Elise - "I Want It All"
Hollie - "Save Me"
Jessica - "Bohemian Rhapsody"
Joshua - "Show Must Go On"
Phillip - "Crazy Little Thing Called Love"
Skylar - "Fat Bottom Girls" The Band Perry did this
Elise - "Bold as Love" - Jimi Hendrix
Hollie - "The Climb"- Miley Cyress
Jessica - "Ready for Love" - India Arie
Joshua - "Dance With My Father"- Luther Vandross
Skylar - "Tattoos on This Town" - Jason Alden
Phillip - "The Stone" ? "The Maker"? "The Best of What's Around? - Dave Matthews Band
or "The Weight" by The Band
If jessica sing ready for love,I'm afraid that would be the end of her journey!she gets to pick up any song she wants to perform and look what she choose? If its really that song!too much of saying she likes beyonce, j.hudson,celine,Whitney and picked up a song by somebody who only a few knew of.....oh my!!!she will just give frustration and disappointment to her fans who expects her to sing new,big,popular hit songs!she doesnt learn her lessons! Well I hope she doesn't sing this song by India....?who?
Will Jessica finally get the pimp spot tonight? Or are they saving that for a more important date?
Skylar and Elise fans better not be asleep at the wheel tonight or they'll be screwed for results. As for my fellow Holliepops and CavaKnights...no matter what happens tonight, lets get this bitch to the final five and get another guy out of the running for America's next top- no, wait XD my bad. Wrong show. Lets get Joshua out and then have the big boss battle in top 4 known as P2 ;D WE CAN DO IT!!!!
If Jessica sings ready for love (which im assuming she is) then I think it can be her "I who have nothing" moment..its a very haunting song. Im actually looking forward to tonight. I said on another blog that I would like to see 3 things tonight
1)Jessica gets the pimp spot
2)Randy stops calling the girls "dudes"
3) Joshua just sings..no yelling or screaming..just singing.
The missing song has to be "The Stone" by the Dave Matthews Band. Its about time Phillip sings a Dave song. Actually it could be "The Joker" by the Steve Miller Band. Thats a good choice too.
I think I have the same guesses as you Jason, except Joshua will be doing Crazy Little Thing called Love like Fantasia. I Want It All will be by Phillip Phillips. The Show Must Go On will be by Elise and Bohemian Rhapsody by Jessica.
The missing song is The Weight by the Band is my guess, in honor of Levon Helm who died last week.
If this is the list here are my projections:
“Show Must Go On” - Hollie
“Fat Bottom Girls” -Phillip (he has the sense of humor to do this)
“Bohemian Rhapsody” - Hollie (Pink Cover)
“Save Me” - Joshua
“Crazy Little Thing Called Love” - Skylar
“I Want It All” - Elise
“Dance with My Father” by Luther Vandross -Joshua
“The Climb” by Miley Cyrus -Hollie
“Ready for Love” by Indie Arie -Jessica
“Bold as Love” by Jimi Hendrix - Elise
“The Weight_” by the Band - Phillip
“Tattoos on This Town” by Jason Aldean Skylar
@Sowsyalite They can always request songs and see if they'll clear them.
@Sowsyalite Exactly. People always forget that. According to Joshua, they only had 13 songs to choose from for this week's Queen theme....
@drufyre I do think that Ready for Love is quite age appropriate if delivered by Jessica well. The more interesting part is will Jessica be playing the guitar? Hollie is being smart. Its difficult to learn a song in a week. She can sing "The Climb" even in her sleep.
@drufyre There's no way. It's not even close to Jessica's style. Hollie has it locked (Unless Skylar brought a crowbar). This was Hollie's save me song in her audition (even in her audition she needed a save me song XD) so it would bring her journey full circle to sing "The Climb" and get into the top 5.
@drufyre you are right!how can she decide to sing a song like that when she's got free choice???purely not thinking!
@Idolwild The Weight ..I'll bet since Levon Helm passed this week
@btyrieou812 That seems to be the guess across the web right now.
@btyrieou812 i think its The Stone by Dave Matthews Band
@btyrieou812 Very smart! I agree.
@lindyoflondon Jason :)
@amor825 He wanted to do "Show Must Go On" Moulin Rouge style....
I'm glad that isn't happening...
@BernadetteEbro India.Arie is an amazing artist. Trippin' you don't know her.
Stefan Lessard just tweeted to Randy Jackson asking him what he is wearing tonight!!! Phillip and Stefan tonight...no way!!
