The Top 7 will sing two songs on the May 6 episode of “American Idol.” One will be from the catalog of the late singer/songwriter Prince while the other comes from the year they were born. The seven finalists are: Gabby Barrett, Cade Foehner, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Maddie Poppe, Jurnee Siani, Catie Turner and Michael J. Woodard.
We have done some digging and discovered the set lists for these lucky seven singers on season 16. Scroll down to find out which songs they will be singing from their birth years. In an earlier spoiler, we uncovered the Prince tunes too.
ABC is airing this episode live from coast to coast. This means that all viewers will get to vote for their favorites and then see the results in real-time. This two-hour show will conclude with the elimination of two artists. For west coasters who don’t want to watch the action as it happens, the show will be repeated in its usual 8 p.m. time slot with a warning that voting is closed.
