Jamie Foxx will mentor American Idol top 4 for ‘songs of the cinema’

Jamie Foxx will serve as American Idol’s celebrity mentor next week, as he takes hopefuls through their ‘songs of the cinema.’

No, you’re not mistaken, Jamie was on the show last year too….in 2009 he mentored the final five hopefuls for their rat pack themed week. In top 7 week last year the show also ran with the movie songs theme and we find ourselves wishing that Idol bosses would come up with an original idea/theme/mentor….just for once!

The approved list of songs (via iTunes) is a diverse one with four Disney tunes alone. We can see Crystal performing ‘Moon River’ with Lee taking on ‘Kiss From A Rose.’ We’d love to hear your son suggestions, so leave your comments below.
