    Songs you'd like to hear the contestants do...

    Go wild and ignore clearance or theme weeks. Or even if another contestant did the song already this year.

    Hearing the song "Taking Chances" as background music in something today made me think of this. It's probably the only Celine Dion song I've liked in the past decade or so, and it occurred to me that it would be a great song for Allison, because unlike most Celine songs I can actually imagine it being done with a slightly lower register, like Allison has. There are some high notes in the song, but those can be played down since most of the song is a lot more mellow.

    I am not an Adam fan, but I think he'd kill "We Are The Champions" by Queen.


    For Allison/Danny, there are too many to list.

    I was thinking practically the same thing. I don't really care for Adam, but would love to know how he'd do with a Queen song. I'm curious if Adam would be a good replacement for Freddy. I think he definitely had it personality-wise, and he'd be able to hit the notes... Believe it or not, I want to like Adam! It's just not happening so far.

    Obviously Kris' "wheelhouse" will be Jason Mraz, or John Mayer songs. It's both his blessing AND his curse.

    Might as well go for the obvious and have him do Mayer's "Your Body is a Wonderland", right? Or maybe Mraz's "I'm Yours".

    I'd like to hear Kris do About a Girl by Nirvana.

    I'd like to hear Kris sing Thank You by Led Zepplin. One of Robert Plants best vocals & a song I think Kris could tear into nicely.

    I figured I should round out the list so...

    Allison - as the last girl standing should rip into Rondstadts Poor Poor Pitiful Me

    Gokey - as the least inventive one of the group could karaoke up to McCartneys Maybe I'm Amazed

    And in his over the top best Adam should kick it to Ozzys Crazy Train.

    I've seen suggestions that Adam do "Bohemian Rhapsody". I think Danny should try it. Talk about taking him out of his ballad comfort zone.
