Carole King, which should prove interesting.
King is a Grammy-winning singer/songwriter and we are big fans of her music. "Tapestry" is really her watershed effort - the 1971 album was named No. 36 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest Albums of All Time.
But we aren't sure how the Idols are going to handle her music. Katelyn Epperly covered "I Feel the Earth" move in Season 9 and got pans from the judges, then was sent packing. Brooke White took on "You've Got a Friend" in Season 7 and did very well, but Carole King is right in Brooke White's wheelhouse. King's songs are quietly great and kind of niche - this year's Idols are going to have to really make them their own or it's going to be a long night.
If you're wondering where you've heard the Carole King that is non-music related, she had a recurring guest role on "Gilmore Girls" as Sophie Bloom the music store owner and also sang the opening title song for the show.
