Thanks to AT&T, one of this week’s performance themes was a first for AMERICAN IDOL, because viewers were able to help determine what musical theme they would like to see on the show. The AT&T IDOL Theme was announced as “One Hit Wonders” and included such hits as “Cry Me A River,” “MacArthur Park” and “A Whiter Shade of Pale.”
Don’t miss the live results show, Thursday, May 2 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), when the final three remaining female powerhouses will be revealed. Plus, Season 7 winner David Cook will perform his new single, “Laying Me Low.”
