Bad choice of Zombie song a tough one, they did so many better ones.

why is the british set song list almost as old as the 60s set, except of course for bleeding love?

Wow songs that I've heard only a few times! I don't think these kids know these songs at all except for Bleeding Love of course. British Pop should have been at least "Current" British Pop.... sigh...

If Philip is in another duet than I think it's quite obvious what the producers want for him. Has he gone first yet?

Sounds like a great show, but damn. Whoever sings "River Deep, Mountain High" is getting the boot XD It's the song that Pia went out on last year which means it has to be cursed.

It's almost a given that Jessica will do Tina turner, didn't randy tell her to release her inner Tina? And if she does bleeding love I will be one happy boy

Take the artists of Jason's first list and apply them in the same order to the second list.  Then the girls sing "Higher and Higher" and the boys doe Righteous Brothers.

@rickey I'm truly uninterested in Idol now that Elise is gone! Tired of PP & Joshua, Skylar is 2 country & I'm not into Holliepop/Jessica

BLEEDING LOVE! haha! I was correct :D

I guess Jessica will get stuck in a trio on the Righteous Bros song with Joshua and Hollie.  One note Phil hasn't got a hope in hell singing that high.  It'd be obvious for Jessica to do Jesse McCartney's Bleeding Love, likely note-for-note.  Presumably Phil will be doing Joe Cocker.  I hope Jessica isn't saddled with Proud Mary but I'm afraid it'll happen.  I remember it being a risky song in Idol history.

@rickey Phillip must do Joe Cocker & CCR !!! I hope! Not too cray about the British songs much...what about you Rickey?

 @takakupo Yes, he did. in the Top10 I think. But, I think he'll totally fail with You've  Lost That Loving Feeling. I don't think he has the range to pull it off. He could be doing the duet with Hollie.

 @takakupo Could be Hollie singing it. Pia Toscano just tweeted she's excited for Hollie tonight :)

 @Idolwild I actually think that Hollie is going to take up the mantle of Dusty Springfield again.

 @jepoy I can totally see P2 doing Bleeding Love. So many covers by guys on youtube. Plus, so far, Jessica has avoided repeating her youtube performances. Skylar, I think, is going to do another "Wind Beneath My Wings" - so I figured she'll do Dusty.

 @Klope62 Oh, I hope it's Phil! I know how much he makes both us happy down below. :D

 @Noelle  @Klope62 And it would complete P2's Taylor Hicks journey... Well, that, and winning the title...

 @Airaheta1fan  @realphill haha, that's what I'm afraid of. She's only shown a glimmer of attitude and Tina's got like a black hole's worth XD
