In a bit of a surprise to the Idol fanbase, news broke yesterday that not only will the contestants this upcoming week be taking on the music of Prince, but also songs from the years they were born. I’ll admit, I’m not that familiar with Prince’s music, but songs from the 90s/2000 are straight up my alley. It did pain me a bit putting together this list though and realizing that I’m older than all of the contestants.
The song spoiler’s for the Prince side of things have already leaked, which you can check out HERE.
Anyway, on to the song suggestions!
(Note: Click the highlighted song for a Youtube link!)
Cade Foehner (1996)
Caleb Lee Hutchinson (1999)
1- Amazed, by Lonestar (obvious pick here)
Caitie Turner (2000)
2- Yellow, by Coldplay (stripped back, just her and the guitar, it could be great)
Gabby Barrett (2000)
Maddie Poppe (1997)
Michael J. Woodard (1997)
So those are my suggestions! What did you think? Is there a particular song YOU want to hear the contestants sing? Let me know in the comments below!
