It’s been a season of variety. With Rock Night, on American Idol Top 4 with former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash as the contestants’ mentor. Jaime Foxx was Rat Pack Week. We have had American Idol Disco Week with a standout performance from Idol frontrunner, Adam Lambert, If I Can’t Have You. We had American Idol Top 7 theme ‘Idols at the Movies’ a night of ‘songs from film,’ with famed Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino as mentor. That gave us another classic from Adam Lambert Born to Be Wild.
We had ‘American Idol’ Year They Were Born Wish List and our contestants’ birth dates ranging from 1980 to 1992, we had a night of 1980s classics, including Adam Lambert, Mad World. We had Top Downloads and outstanding performances from Kris Allen (Ain’t No Sunshine) and Adam Lambert (Wild Cherry, ‘Play that Funky Music’).
Earlier in the season we witnessed Motown Week with legendary Smokey Robinson and Motown founder and legend Barry Gordy himself as mentors of the American Idol top 10 that week. Prior to that we had Grand Ole Opry Week with mentor Randy Travis on hand to school our contestants. First there was the Adam Lambert Ring of Fire and next the Adam Lambert Tracks of My Tears performance that got everyone talking.
We have seen Allison Iraheta, Matt Giraud, Megan Joy, Michael Sarver, Alexis Grace, Jasmine Murray and Jorge Nunez sent home in addition to Lil Rounds and Anoop Desai, and now Danny Gokey.
