Next week American Idol‘s Top 4 song theme is “California Dreamin”. This could mean artists born in California or songs about California. Songs from The Beach Boys, The Mamas and the Papas and The Eagles come to mind, but artists like Etta James, Josh Groban, Fergie, Dwight Yokam, Cher and more were born in California.
I would love to hear Joshua do Etta James “I’d Rather Go Blind” or “Do Right Woman, Do Right Man”. The song choices will be the key to who goes forward.
Each contestant will sing two songs, but the second theme as of this post hasn’t been announced yet. Jennifer Lopez and David Cook are scheduled to perform on next week’s results show on Thusday May 10. Cook will perform a brand new single called “The Last Song I’ll Write for You,” and Lopez will give a pre-taped performance.
