Carole King Songs Get the 'American Idol' Treatment Next Week
The singer-songwriter's catalog includes "I Feel the Earth Move," "Just Once in My Life" and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman."
The remaining six American Idol contestants will perform the songs of singer-songwriter Carole King next week.
The announcement was made on Thursday night's elimination episode, which saw finalist Stefano Langone being sent home.
Among the songs written by King: "I Feel the Earth Move," "I'm Into Something Good," "The Loco-Motion," "Just Once in My Life," "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman," "One Fine Day," "Some Kind of Wonderful," "Take Good Care of My Baby" and "You've Got a Friend."
Soon after the announcement, King became a trending topic on Twitter, with the majority of tweeters passing on the news and suggesting certain songs for the contestants.
There were some disappointed fans, though: "@AmericanIdol Carole King??? Come on...I love her but there is not enough variety. Next you'll be rolling out Gordon Lightfoot," griped a Twitter user identified only as Chessplayer999.
Also next week, singer-songwriter Bruno Mars and last season's runner-up, Crystal Bowersox, are set to perform on Thursday's elimination episode.
