American Idol 11 Top 5 – British Theme & the 60’s – Song Suggestions
This week, American Idol‘s Top 5 take on a “British & ’60’s Theme.” Oh man. Well, at least these contestants can still do something current with the ‘British’ selection. They will be signing two songs each. I’m hitting my music collection again to come up with more song suggestions.
With that said, I sat down with my Spotify playlists to crack out some song suggestions for the remaining contestants. It is still sad to me that Elise Testone didn’t make the Top 5 — she could have nailed an Amy Winehouse song. Oh well.
Here’s my list:
Paint It, Black – The Rolling Stones
Price Tag – Jessie J
Let Me Entertain You – Robbie Williams
“Light My Fire” – The Doors
“I’m a Believer” – The Monkees
Sailing – Rod Stewart
Border Song – Elton John
Crazy – Seal
“With a Little Help from My Friends” – Joe Cocker
“I Put a Spell on You” – by Nina Simone
Valerie – The Zutons (Amy Winehouse covered this)
Bulletproof – La Roux
You Had Me – Joss Stone
“Papa was a Rolling Stone” – The Temptations
“California Soul” – Marlena Shaw
Roxanne – The Police
Who’d Have Known – Lily Allen
Thank You – Dido
“Pinball Wizard” – The Who
“Mr. Tambourine Man” – Bob Dylan
Footprints in the Sand – Leona Lewis
Candle in the Wind – Elton John
Wild Horses – Natasha Bedingfield
“River Deep Mountain High” – Tina Turner
“In My Life” – Judy Collins
What do you think of my picks? What does your list look like? Speculate in the comments!
Got Something to Add?
Skylar Laine, stay away from Roxanne. Juliet made it untouchable, I don't want a comparison war. Can Skylar please be voted off this week? PLEASE.
As long as no Adele I'll be happy... Love the girl but she's been done so many times this season already...
skylar - " mercy" by duffy
hollie- "unwritten" by natasha bedingfield
jessica- " domino" by jessie j
joshua - " angels" by robbie williams
phillip - "you're beautiful" by james blunt
I would love for Jessica to do Jessie J either Who you are, or Momma knows best..that being said, I think the more obvious choice would be bleeding love.
@rezzzy I actually like her :)
@maila not sure about Phillip doing a James Blunt song, but I'll like to see Joshua do his "Carry You Home" single.
@maila Not sure about the song choices but I would love to see the artists covered.
Im not sure how I feel about that haha. Skylar & Hollie= Carrie? Joshua= Fantasia? Phillip=Taylor? Jessica=Kelly?..im not sure that'd be a good night
@Mg12 i want jessica to do jesie j's "domino"
@Nikko bleeding love would be amazing!
@Mg12 i know, sounds kinda silly but i read that from one of the posters at the AI FB page.
@GuilhermeCaminada I was correct! yay! :D
@Mg12 maybe thats what it is, previous idol contestants. phillip should do william hung jk:)
I think if they made it "songs from previous idol contestants" then maybe it would be a little better..that adds the option of daughtry, Katherine mcphee, kellie pickler, Elliott yamin..I just realized all four of them were from the same season, oh the glory days lol..but theres also Jennifer hudson, adam lambert..theres more options :)
