This Sunday’s episode of “American Idol” will spotlight the Top 5 in three performances apiece. Each of the five finalists will sing a song from the Elton John catalog (with an assist from Taron Egerton, who stars in “Rocketman,” the upcoming biopic of the singer/songwriter), another picked out by Bobby Bones and a third in honor of Mother’s Day.
Four of these finalists on “American Idol” were the top vote-getters last Sunday (May 5): Alejandro Aranda, Wade Cota, Laine Hardy and Madison VanDenburg. The fifth, Laci Kaye Booth, made it through only after getting the judges save over Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon, After reviewing the song spoilers, courtesy of The Idol Pad, be sure to vote for your favorite artist to win season 17 of “American Idol” at the bottom of this post.
