American Idol Season 9: My Song Wish List for Movie Week . . .

I've been pretty critical of some of the song choices that the Idols have been making so I thought I would do something a little different and make a wish list of songs that I think the Idols could do really well on for Movie week. You can see the entire list of songs they have to choose from HERE.

Lee DeWyze - Iris from the movie City of Angels. This song fits Lee perfectly and I think he could really bring it on stage if he selects this song and performs it well. Check out Boyce Avenue's video HERE.

Michael Lynche - Somewhere Over the Rainbow or Summertime in a more current Michael Lynche type of arrangement would be cool. Check out these videos by the very talented Leona Lewis (winner of the X-Factor) Somewhere Over the Rainbow and Summertime.

Casey James - Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman in a rock ballad/country/blues style of his own. And since you're most comfortable with your guitar, make it acoustic and go for it. If Casey connects with the lyrics and creates an honest and vulnerable performance he could really launch himself into the top three! Check this video by Chris Daughtry's acoustic version HERE.

Crystal Bowersox - The Time of My Life. I think if Crystal could take this song and blues it up in her own Mama Sox style, she could really kick some serious AI booty and catapult herself into the top three! Check out David Cook's winning version: HERE

Best of luck to the top 4 Idols tomorrow night!


  1. oh-what fun. LIKE your suggestions. Let's see - I'll have to go over to the list and post on my blog....m

  2. Hi M, thanks for liking my suggestions. I just read your song wish list and it's cool that you and I have very similar ideas. I had the same songs on my initial list for Crystal, Mike and Lee. I think it will be a very interesting night and I'm looking forward to the performances. Thanks so much and have a great evening.

  3. Both you and M came up with some great ideas. It'll be interesting to see what the Idols choose (and it's getting to the point where song choice is SO important!). Should be a fun night!

  4. Hi Annie, thanks so much for your comments. And I totally agree that song choice is really important at this stage. Hope they choose well and give us a great show. Looking forward to it.
