American Idol 11 Top 13 – What Should the Idols Sing?

The American Idol finals begin! This week the Top 13 sing…songs from Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston, with the girls singing Whitney and the boys crooning Stevie. Excuse me while I Zzzzzzz. Gah. Please Nigel, make the song themes more imaginative! Have you noticed that your competition is kinda killing you?

Anyhoo. As boring as this theme is, I will still attempt to choose songs for the Top 13! And it would be fab if y’all would do the same. Fun.

Boys – Stevie

Phillip Phillips  – “Higher Ground” –  Phil’s gravelly vocals would be well suited to this gritty tune.
Heejun Han – “You Are The Sunshine of My Life” – Aw. Wouldn’t this be sweet? Plus, it would give Heejun an opportunity to sing something upbeat.
Colton Dixon – “I Was Made To Love Her” – Colton could show a soulful side.
Deandre Brackensick  – “Overjoyed” or “Ribbon in the Sky” –  If Deandre uses his falsetto just right on either song, he’ll score.
Jermaine Jones – “Lately” – This could be very moving if he nails the vocal.
Joshua Ledet – “Living For the City” –  Take us to church, Joshua.
Jeremy Rosado  – “For Once In My Life” – Jeremy can get all emotional

Girls – Whitney

Jessica Sanchez – One Moment in Time – Jessica can handle the big songs
Skylar Laine  – I Will Always Love You – A little too obvious? Maybe. But it would be nice to hear this song done country again.
Elise Testone – “Saving All My Love For You” –  Could fit Elise’s bluesy style
Hollie Cavanaugh – “Didn’t We Almost Have it All” – Hollie can also handle the big songs.
Erika Van Pelt – “I’ m Your Baby Tonight – I can hear Erika’s sexy alto on this one.
Shannon Magrane – “How Will I Know?” – A cute, young song for 15 year old Shannon.
