The best ''American Idol'' singles

The best ”American Idol” singles — We list the greats from Daughtry, Mario Vasquez, and Tamyra Gray

Chris Daughtry

The best ”American Idol” singles

MARIO VAZQUEZ
”One Shot”
In this R&B serenade about love’s risks, Mario channels Ne-Yo over a sexy Latin-inspired guitar.

CHRIS DAUGHTRY
”Over You”
Compare his band to Nickelback all you want, but Daughtry rocks. With its overblown sound, the tune is undeniable.

DIANA DEGARMO
”Go On and Cry”
Her soaring voice shines as she incites a brokenhearted lover to ”Cry, cry, cry.”

KIMBERLEY LOCKE
”8th World Wonder”
Pure pop fun, with a hook-filled chorus and a tinge of rocking out. It almost sounds like an outtake from Kelly Clarkson’s first album (and that’s a good thing).

TAMYRA GRAY
”Raindrops Will Fall”
Gray’s lush ballad about fragile dreams is loaded with just enough of her personality.
