    Who will sing what tonight?

    Per tonight's American Idol theme of movie soundtrack songs written/composed by Dianne Warren, which contestant will sing what? I must say I can't take credit for starting this thread because a dear friend of mine suggested that I should bring the topic to the forum.

    Were all these songs in movies?

    Ugh, I can imagine Julia will go for "Unbreak my heart".

    Hmmm, I don't know either.

    No offense to the composer, but there are some "dodgy" songs on that list imo.
    Not my cup of tea at all. This could be a long show for me
    "That's Numberwang!"

    Long show indeed...what are they going to do for 2 hours again? Please tell me they won't show us the contestant montages again. Please.

    Hahaha! I don't think that these are all from movies either... I think that this list is just a sample of what she's produced throughout the years.

    Kelly will be performing as well... they'll probably show them rehearsing with Dianne at the piano or something. Who really knows what they will be doing for 2 whole hours... maybe Ryan can do push-ups again.

    They aren't all from movies, although sometimes it's surprising just how many songs are used simply for credit rolls.

    I can't pick a song for everyone, but some definite ones I'd like to hear are:

    Corey - Rhythm of the Night
    Kim C. - If I Could Turn Back Time
    Julia - I Get Weak
    Carmen - How Will I Live (From ConAir)
    Trenyce - Love Will Lead You Back
    Clay - Blue Eyes Blue (from Runaway Bride)
    Kim L. - There You'll Be (From Pearl Harbor)

    It's gonna be hard for the guys to get a lot out of these mostly girly ballads.

    Good match-ups Eden! Kim C. could probably do Taylor Dane too though.
