What songs should the Idols sing for 'life anthems' week?

Posted on


Idol6_l Please, PopWatchers, tell me I’m not alone in fearing that this week’s edition of American Idol — in which the contestants will sing from the vague and somewhat dubious category of “life anthems” — could potentially devolve into a schmaltzy sea of “I Believe I Can Fly,” “Hero,” and “Another Day in Paradise.” According to Fox’s press release, there won’t be a guest mentor in da house (I guess Deepak Chopra and Dr. Phil weren’t available), and thus, the responsibility falls squarely on our shoulders to help the six remaining finalists make this a week to remember (in a non-horrifying kind of way). Here’s my request list, which I’ve been mulling all morning and am still not completely sold on. Share your own picks in the comments section below:
