Oh boy. So next week’s theme is going to be songs from the years the Idols were born. I am now officially older than all of the contestants, which I sort of intellectually knew, but all the same, what can prepare me for this? Two thirds of those young whippersnappers were born in the nineties. Crazy.

I have no idea what any of them should sing; Erika needs to sing something awesome, because she’s awesome, and Hollie needs to sing something that was not included in a Disney movie. I need for no one to sing any Nirvana songs (Colton Dixon I’m looking at you: just don’t).
What do you guys think?
