'American Idol' Hopefuls To Perform Music Of Prince
The seven remaining contestants on American Idol will perform the music of Prince on Sunday's episode.
Prince, who died in 2016, performed two songs on Idol in 2006.
The set list includes hits like "When Doves Cry," performed by country singer Caleb Lee Hutchinson; "I Would Die 4 U" performed by Michael J. Woodward; and "Kiss" performed by Jurnee Siani.
But there will also be covers of Prince songs that were made hits by other acts – The Bangles' "Manic Monday" performed by Catie Turner, and Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U" performed by Maddie Pope.
Rocker Cade Foehner is set to cover "Jungle Love," a song written by Prince (under the pseudonym Jamie Starr) and released by The Time in 1984.
Gabby Barrett has chosen the gospel-tinged 1982 Prince track "How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore," which has been recorded by artists including Alicia Keys.
Each Idol hopeful will also perform a song from the year of their birth on Sunday's episode. It airs at 8 p.m. ET on CTV Two.
