Top 11 American Idol Contestants Rehearse Cee Lo Green’s ‘Forget You’
With Casey Abrams on upright bass and Scotty McCreery on acoustic guitar, Jacob Lusk begins the song with his soulful vocals. The group launches into full background harmonies as Thia Megia picks things up in the second half of the chorus.
Stefano Langone and Naima Adedapo split first verse duties, before James Durbin comes in on the chorus armed with another guitar. Haley Reinhart puts her own spin on the melody of the chart-topping single, opening the song up for Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano and Lauren Alaina to add their flair, too.
Later, Abrams sneaks in a line from the Gnarls Barkley hit 'Crazy,' and Lusk and Reinhart close out the ensemble rendition by sharing the final chorus. By the looks of the video, the 11 singers are gelling just fine.
The American Idols Live! tour is set to begin on July 6 at the Maverik Center in West Valley City, Utah, and wrap up on Sept. 10 at the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, N.Y. The 45-date run will feature solo and duet sets from the Season 10 favorites.
