Sure, the seven remaining American Idol finalists have already picked their selections from one of Rod Stewart’s four Great American Songbook CDs, but that doesn’t mean it’s not fun to play Tuesday-morning vocal coach and tell them what we’d like to hear them sing tonight. I’ve already come up with my own request list, and now it’s your turn: Check out the track listing for Stewart’s Vol. I, II, III, and IV and then pair each contestant (yes, even Ace) with the song you think best suits him or her.
Elliott Yamin, ”Everytime We Say Goodbye”
Chris Daughtry, ”I’m in the Mood for Love”
Kellie Pickler, ”Makin’ Whoopee”
Katharine McPhee, ”Blue Moon”
Paris Bennett, ”S’Wonderful”
Ace Young, ”I Only Have Eyes for You”
Taylor Hicks, ”Night and Day”
