What 'American Classics' should the Idol finalists sing?

Final9_l

Final9_lWe’re less than 36 hours away from week 4 of the American Idol finals, with Tony Bennett coaching the contestants as they perform “American Classics.” Last week’s booted contestant, Chris Sligh, told EW’s Jessica Shaw he was planning on covering “A Kiss to Build a Dream On” (nice!), but until those online spoilers start kicking in tomorrow, I thought it might be fun to debate what cherished tunes the nine remaining contestants should sing. Feel free to put your requests in the comments section below – or if you want to be part of Tuesday’s Idolatry Webcast, e-mail your most inspired song choices (along with your name and contact phone number) to idolatry@ew.com before 10:30 a.m. EDT on Monday. Quick! Phil Stacey’s future could depend on it!

LaKisha Jones, “That’s Life”
Gina Glocksen, “Blue Moon”
Melinda Doolittle, “I’ve Got It Bad and That Ain’t Good”
Haley Scarnato, “Makin’ Whoopee”
Jordin Sparks, “You’ve Changed”
Phil Stacey, “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes”
Blake Lewis, “You Do Something to Me”
Chris Richardson, “Don’t Fence Me In”
Sanjaya Malakar, “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off”
