Who Should Sing What

OK. American Standards night for the remaining AIers. BUT - not just any standards, but standards sung by Rod Stewart on any of his horrendous Great American Songbook CDs. The big question will be how they approach these songs--straight, or "reimagined" to fit into their respective wheelhouses. So--what should the hopefuls sing?

Ace Young - "Blue Moon"
Hopefully, his last hurrah.

Kellie Pickler - "What a Wonderful World"
Put that naivete to good use.

Paris Bennett - "Love Is Here to Stay"
My wedding song. Be gentle with it.

Katherine McPhee - "Where or When"
A pretty, delicate ballad. Don't break it.

Taylor Hicks - "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered"
Show us you can do the quiet jazz, acting a song thing too.

Elliot Yamin - "A Kiss to Build A Dream On"
He's going to break this, I'm sure.

Chris Daughtry - "Night and Day"
This song has a fair bit of darkness in it for our Creed-o-phile to play with.

Until Whenever

Oh, Pickler was TERRIBLE. And after something she said about getting something off her chest, AI seemed to focus on Stewart's facial expression. I think she as naive as Jessica Simpson used to be (or played).

Horrible. But I was so refreshed to hear her admit it. These contestants hardly ever seem to admit the bad performances, at least not this openly. I actually cheered her a little when she said she "butchered it."
