Here Are The Songs The Contestants Will Sing On Prince Night On ‘American Idol’
So, this week the theme was Disney songs on American Idol and it was pretty entertaining. But this coming Sunday the gang at Idol will launch their tribute to the late music legend Prince. They will be singing some of his classic songs and we have to say that they are perfect for each of the singers.
I am a child of the 80’s so I grew up on Prince. I’ll never forget seeing his video for When Doves Cry and thinking, “Maybe I shouldn’t be watching this” but watching it any way. Speaking of When Doves Cry, that’s the song Caleb Lee Hutchinson will sing. We’ll see if he can pull of the sexy. Cade Foehner is going to do Jungle Love which Prince wrote for Morris Day and the Time and will be super fun to watch. Catie Turner will sing Manic Monday, which Prince wrote for The Bangles. Talk about a perfect song for her. She’s going to kill it.
Gabby Barrett will sing How Come U Don’t Call Me Anymore, which again she’s going to kill. Jurnee will do Kiss Which I know she will make her own and pump up the sexy factor. Maddie Poppe is singing Nothing Compares to You and I’m sure she’ll channel her inner Sinead O’Connor. Finally, we have Michael Woodard and I Would Die for You, another perfect pick.
All I’m saying is that Sunday will be a night to remember. Too bad no one is singing Purple Rain. I also predict that Katy Perry will be dressed in purple.
