This week's "Idol" songs

This week's theme is "Club Idol" - whatever that means???? Will it be musical murder on the dancefloor?

In his article in Aftonbladet about this week's song choices, Martin Söderström memorably describes the combination of Camilla Håkansson and Lionel Richie's ”All Night Long” 'as attractive as mumps' !! He is a bit more inspired by Tove singing Katy Perry and Mariette tackling the Eurythmics though.

It's a pretty diverse selection this week and hard to predict, although Reza should maybe start worrying because of the "curse of Superstar" - I remember watching other reality talent shows over the years and anyone who sings that song isn't in the competition for very long.

And I really don't know how I should feel about Eddie singing "Release Me".....I only hope he gives a much better vocal performance than last week.

Here's what they're all singing this week:

Nicklas Hocker – ”Get the party started” (Pink).
Rabih Jaber – ”When love takes over” (David Guetta).
Karolina Brånsgård – ”Just dance” (Lady GaGa).
Erika Selin – ”About you now” (Sugababes).
Calle Kristiansson - ”Destiny calling” (Melody Club).
Reza Ningtyas Lindh – ”Superstar” (Jamelia).
Erik Grönwall – ”Leave a light on” (Belinda Carlisle).
Camilla Håkansson – ”All night long” (Lionel Ritchie).
Eddie Razaz – ”Release me” (Agnes).
Mariette Hansson – ”When tomorrow comes” (Eurythmics).
Tove Styrke Östman – ”Hot 'n' cold” (Katy Perry).

On the one hand, I love that Eddie chose "Release Me" because hopefully it means he loves that kind of music and will release songs like that post-Idol.

On the, well, we'll see how it goes.

I can see him doing boy-pop-dance stuff after Idol, hope he doesn't get sent down the r'n'b route as that market has just reached saturation point.

Otherwise, being completely shallow, even if he's so bad that I need to turn the volume down, the visuals will be good :)
