Crystal Bowersox: "The Boxer," Simon and Garfunkel. Has never been performed on the show, and she's got the earnestness and phrasing to sell it.
Lee DeWyze: "Your Love Keeps Lifting Me (Higher and Higher)," Jackie Wilson. If the Horns of Idol leave him alone, it's a strong song for him to sell.
The Outlaw Casey James: "Up Where We Belong," Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes. Yeah, he could have fun with this.
Aaron Kelly: "Angels," Robbie Williams. A rite of passage for a certain slice of the Idol performing demographic. Either that or Enigma's "Return to Innocence," because why else would it be on the list?
Michael Lynche: "You've Got A Friend," Carole King. Just a guess. Fits his acoustic side.
Siobhan Magnus: "I'll Be There," The Jackson 5. About time for her to hit another home run, so why not scale Mt. Mariah?
Tim Urban: "Don't Dream It's Over," Crowded House. Fits within his limited range and demeanor.
