This week, 'American Idol''s Top 7 finally get to sing songs that aren't older than they are, and we're psyched to see what fresh tunes the kids come up with. Will Scotty McCreery country-fy Bieber? Will Lauren Alaina go Gaga? Doubtful, but hopefully the contestants will take some chances with the kind of tunes that are filling up their iPods.
As for our dream set list, this week we're asking for a little help putting together our picks from you, 'Idol' fans with an ear for the music of "Gen-Z." Let us know what 21st-century tunes the contestants should sing (and why!) in the comments below, and we'll put the best choices in our song list (with a shout-out to you, of course) for this week. So slap on your Beats headphones (or other listening implement of choice) and give these whippersnappers a run for the money with music of the modern age!
'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM ET on FOX.
