The top 7 finalists of American Idol are back after the judges saved Jessica Sanchez from elimination last week. The theme is "Now & Then" -- each contestant performing two songs: a Billboard No. 1 hit from 2000 to 2012, and a "soul" song from a previous decade.
There is quite a definite number of songs to choose from the Billboard No. 1 hits, but there are lots of "soul" songs to sing. Which songs do you think will the finalists sing?
I'm rooting for Jessica Sanchez to sing any of the following Billboard hits (though these don't quite fit with her age)...
- Foolish by Ashanti
- Don't Forget About Us by Mariah Carey
- No One by Alicia Keys
- Part of Me by Katy Perry
...and these "soul" songs:
- Something's Got A Hold On Me by Etta James
- Until You Come Back to Me by Aretha Franklin
What do you think?
UPDATE: Song Spoilers!
