Which (non-horrible) 'inspirational songs' should the Idols sing tonight?

Posted on

Annie Barrett and I brainstorm a set list for the eight remaining American Idol contestants, including numbers from En Vogue, Tom Petty, and Irene Cara. Think of this episode as Idolatry Gives Back, and after you’ve watched, get in the spirit and make some suggestions of your own. Otherwise, you’ll have no one to blame but yourself when someone sings “I Believe I Can Fly” or “Flying Without Wings.”
