Does anyone remember if there are usually song spoilers or do we have to wait until the first night on the tour to learn what they are singing? I hope we get spoilers! I really want to know what Matt has chosen to sing.

I have exact the same worries. Being excited about the tour but at the same time, performance orders,duets,songs,many ways to mess up ... confused
I have zero trust on that AI machinery. Sorry.

Here I go with more of my Constantine stories. Yes we should be worried. Constantine went out six so he should have been closing out the first part of the show during his season's tour but they had him performing 3rd when the venue wasn't even filled while Nadia who went out before him closed out the first half. And then when Bo had to leave the tour because of illness they had Constantine take his place during Bo's first absence but by the next show he was back in his 3rd spot while Jessica and Anthony received an extra song a piece to cover for Bo's missed performances. Constantine was definitely a main draw to that seasons tour along with Carrie and Bo and yet he got the short end of the stick. Scott only received 2 songs and a duet with Jessica if I am remembering correctly?

Matt should get to open the second half of the show with his placement and he better get at least 3 solos. I am also worried about this!

I assume that TPTB definitely have a say what winds up on tour. Unlike the shows where the contestants pick the songs, I'm pretty sure that TPTB want control of the type of music and the sequence (they don't want 5 fast songs in a row for example). So in the end, I'm not sure how much say matt actually has about song choice, especially a new song. I also suspect that newer music, such as One Republic maybe tougher to clear than older stuff (although they did agree to Apologize). So, I actually expect an older song but would be pleasantly surprised with a newer one. Matt did say he wanted something upbeat to start the show, not sure if that was for something new or old.
As far songs that he has already sang go, I think its going to be between So Small, LGIO and PTL or Georgia. The first 2 (and last) are ones he played on the media circuit after being booted, have a piano part, and he got great reviews for. PTL is a more upbeat song and he himself has said that it was one of his favorite performances - I actually wouldn't be surprised if he opened with that. Georgia for obvoius reasons.
As far as adding a song in that he hasn't yet done, I definitely like your suggestions. A couple of others that came to mind (and I posted this somewhere else)
1. Try a little tenderness - Otis Redding
2. Walking in Memphis (maybe for Memphis?) - ? too slow (but a song I love)
3. Scenes from an Italian Restaurant - great piano solo (kind of a long song) - would Billy Joel allow it after the debacle
4. A song for you - I love this song but since Elliott (and Kris) have recently done it, maybe not the best idea
5. When a man loves a woman - percy sledge.

What do you all think?

Yeah unfortunately TPTB definitely have a say in what they perform. I was just writing about that in another thread--they often have songs they don't even know (hence Matt posting he's learning his lyrics). I wonder what that mystery song will be? Would it be something along the lines of that BOX they like to put him in? If it is, do you think that would be a way of them testing Matt to see if they'd consider signing him after the tour?

God I hope not! I so do not want a JT sounding CD from him!

I have no idea how the idol tour works, but I hope Matt is rewarded after having been skipped on in the finale. He needs to have a "pimp" spot. I would really love to see Idols just to see Matt - and i'd like to see Adam too (sorry, have to admit that i like to watch him perform - not as much as matt though) - but to have to endure Megan Joy, Michael Sarver, Danny Gokey - oh jeez! I guess those could be restroom breaks.

But if Matt gets to do 3 solos I would love to hear him do "When A Man Loves a Woman" (Percy Sledge). I keep listening to it and I can so envision Matt singing this. It's so soulful and beautiful and has exactly the type of lyrics Matt likes to sing!

I bet he'll sing "Georgia" since it was such a hit.

I hope he doesn't do anything that even comes close to resembling Justin Timberlake.

Hey, I just downloaded "Try a Little Tenderness" by Otis Redding - and YES! Wow. I could hear Matt playing the piano, making love to those keys - and singing this soulful song with all his beautiful riffs - but not too over the top, keep it tasteful as Paula said. Great song choice for Matt!

Sounds like you and I are one the same page when it comes to music we want him to sing. I think he wants to do something current as well, I just don't know if TPTB will let him. Having said that, I would think you would need to put a gun to his head to do JT (I think he really dislikes all the JT comparisons).

I think we now know 2 of the 3 solo numbers that Matt will be performing.

On June 18, he tweeted: I can confirm that I'm doing Georgia on My Mind along with the full band. cheers

Today he tweeted a clue: I was just hanging out on the corner of 1st and Amistad." Very Happy

Yay, that means he's going to sing You Found Me! Matt must be so excited, since he mentions in every interview that The Fray is his favorite band.

I know the judges criticized him a lot for trying to do rock, but it looks like the musical director knows that Matt will do an awesome job with it. Matt will show everyone that he is a versatile and "current" musician, and I'm glad he didn't get stuck doing two older songs. He will show off both his bluesy side and his pop side. Everyone attending the concerts will be amazed with his piano skills. I love you

Now I wonder what his third song will be. Each of the Idols said their third song would be one that they never performed on the show. I hope Matt does a more uptempo song, since his first two are slower. He needs to energize that crowd! bounce
