What will they sing? Thoughts on the Top 10

Ok y'all, so, I went through the number one songs from the year of our current idols birth, and have developed a list of possible songs based on my review. I realize that the idols have the choice of any song from that year, but, knowing that singing recognizable songs often provides a good payoff, I thought the list of number ones might be a good bet. As you'll see, some of them provide interesting choices, and others will have to dig a little further into the song book to find a matchable choice.

1. Lil David -

1. Nothing Compares To You – Sinead O’Connor
2. Praying For Time – George Micheal
3. Love Will Lead You Back – Taylor Dayne

2. Jason Castro

1. Lean on Me – Club Nuveau
2. Faith – George Michael (my personal choice)
3. U2 – With or Without You

3. Chekezie

1. Say You Say Me – Lionel Richie
2. I Want to Know What Love Is – Foreigner
3. The Power of Love – Huey Lewis and the News

4. David Cook

1. Hard to Say I’m Sorry – Chicago (The only one that fit – and good be rich, tasty goodness)

5. Kristy Lee Cook

1. Time After Time – Cyndi Lauper
2. Lets Hear it for the Boy – Denise Williams

6. Michael Johns

1. Three Times a Lady – Commodores
2. MacArthur Park – Donna Summer OR Night Fever – BeeGees (These are two songs I fear he will try . . . YIKES!)

7. Ramiele Malubay

1. Didn’t We Almost Have it All – Whitney Houston (I fear this one, but the judges told her to do ballads)
2. Always – Atlantic Starr

8. Syesha Mercado

1. Didn’t We Almost Have it All – Whitney Houston (She and Ramiele will pull out weave for this one)
2. Always – Atlantic Starr (The one who has the least weave left will sing this one)

9. Carly Smithson

1. Total Eclipse of the Heart – Bonnie Tyler
2. What a Feeling – Irene Cara
3. Every Breath You Take – Police (Sweet Lord, I wish Michael Johns could sing this)

10. Brooke White

1. Every Breath You Take – Police (She won’t sing this song, but it was the ONLY number 1 from this year that might even kind of fit her).

Based on the songs I could find, their prior performances, and the projected order of performance based on last week, here is a VERY EARLY projection of who might be in the bottom 3 (I reserve the right to change these picks for the purposes of the friendly competition) - Ramiele, Kristy Lee, and Chekezie

What do y'all think?
