American Idol 2011 Top 5 Song List Spoilers

Posted by on May 4, 2011 at 8:28 AM EST

american idol top 5The American Idol Top 5 will have to sing two songs (60’s & current) tonight (May 4, 2011) and here are my song lsit predictions.

It is a big week on American Idol this week as the Top 5 singers will now have to tackle two songs tonight. The theme is “Now and Then” which will have the singers do a song that is from the 1960’s and a current song. That leaves a lot of options out there to choose from. To help them with their selections Sheryl Crow will be stopping by to mentor alongside Jimmy Iovine.

There are a lot of options here for the American Idol Top 5 to choose from, but here are my choices that I would love to hear them sing. Remember, the Idol producers still do not allow audience members inside of the auditions so these song list spoilers are my predictions.

Lauren Alaina:  With her full voice and country twang I think she should do something country and fun for her current song. If she did something like “The House That Built Me” By Miranda Lambert for her current song it would be a good mix. When it comes to her song from the 1960’s she could to “Proud Mary” By CCR.

James Durbin: So far he has proven that he can do just about anything so the world is his this week. For his Now song I would like to see him do “Sober” by Pink. For his Then song he should go big and do The Rolling Stones “Paint it Black.”

Scotty McCreery: It could be a very good week on American Idol for Scotty as he gets to select something he can really put his mark on. For his Now song I’d like to see him do “Live A Little” by Kenny Chesney. A Then song that I think would rock for him is Sam Cooke’s “A Change is Gonna Come.” It would be a bold move, Cooke is a legend, but Scotty could flip it and make it something special.

Haley Reinhart: With her gravelly voice that is sweet when needed and powerful when needed Haley could do just about anything she wanted. For her Now song I would like to see her do “What The Hell” from Avril Lavigne; it would be fun an unexpected. A good, powerful Then song would be “Tracks of My Tears” by the Miracles.

Jacob Lusk: Jacob needs to do something big this week or he will be in serious danger of going home. He might as well go big. As a Now song he should do Cee Lo Greens “Forget You” which is, of course the clean version of “Fuck You.” For his Then song he could do Otis Reddings “Dock of the Bay.”

These are my choices for what the Top 5 American Idol contestants should sing tonight. Tune in tonight at 8PM on Fox to see what they end up singing and find out what advice Sheryl Crow gives them.

  1. Tonight Americia get it right. Vote off Jacob. It’s time for him to go as he should have been voted off a long time ago. I think Scotty and James will be the final two. It will also be very close in the votes. So America do the right thing tonight.

    • I agree. They are my favorites too

    • Scotty and James are the greatest, but Scotty gets my vote.

  2. Track of my tears was done by Paul on Motown week.

    I am kinda tired of this season already. I am tired of Jacob whining, Haley grovelling, and although James is talented, James screaming.

    Lauren bores me to tears.

    What personality is even left to watch?

    Thanks for the update.. might watch Voice and Glee that I recorded instead.

  3. Scotty could really nail the votes by doing something patriotic!

    • Oh! You are right. It will be interesting to see what song he picks Nancy.

  4. every body are in dangeres,who knows may be jacob will show every body how he is talented.

  5. Get rid of Jacob

  6. I REALY THINK SCOTTY IS THE NEW ELVIS , Johnny CASH, NELSON ON AND ON THE NEW COUNTRY STAR, JACOB GREAT BUT HE NEEDS BETTER SONGS, JAMES IS THE REAL MONSTER OF ROCK ,HAILY CRASY STAR /BUT SCOTTY THE NEW AMERICAN IDOL NEW AMERICAN HERO

    • I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT SCOTTY SUCKS SO DAMN BAD!!!AND HIS HE SHOULD HAVE NEVER MADE IT THIS FAR.. I REALLY DONT KNOW WHAT
      YOU PEOPLE SEE IN HIM, THAT MAKES ME LAOUGH THAT JOSEPH THINKS HE IS THE NEW ELVIS

      NOTHING I MEAN NOTHING ESPICALL HE CAN SING SO DOES ALOT OF OTHER PEOPLE. AMERICAN IDOL WINNER SHOULD BE EATHER JAMES OR LOURAN

  7. I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT SCOTTY SUCKS SO DAMN BAD!!!AND HIS HE SHOULD HAVE NEVER MADE IT THIS FAR.. I REALLY DONT KNOW WHAT
    YOU PEOPLE SEE IN HIM, THAT MAKES ME LAOUGH THAT JOSEPH THINKS HE IS THE NEW ELVIS
    ARE YOU KIDDING ME HERE??? YOU KNOW WHO THAT IS. I GUESS NOTTTT!! SCOTTY HAS
    NOTHING I MEAN NOTHING ESPICALL HE CAN SING SO DOES ALOT OF OTHER PEOPLE. AMERICAN IDOL WINNER SHOULD BE EATHER JAMES OR LOURAN

  8. MY VOTE IS FOR SCOTTY!! HIS VOICE IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!

    • I agree he is the only one who can deliver a whole song start to finish

  9. you,re all picking on JACOB because he,s black but i,m from Jamaica and i,m proud to be black.when JACOB wins you all can go kiss his butt you don,t think a black man can do nothing. you all still live in 1954 where you think white men rule well is only 1 man rules and that,s GOD himself. in your FACE

    • Lady please we are tired of hearing the black thing!!! we have evolved, come out of the cave into today! Jacob sings great hymn music, but he hasn’t shown any type of music that he can do, he doesn’t fit Pop, Rock, Country, but he could sing R&B.

  10. please all these sing really well,i only wish i was given such talent as they was.i would hate to be the one judging ,i think james should win, not because he is the best singer but having the disabilities he was born with and to make it this far he is not only talented he is an inspiration to so many youg children who thought life was not worth living or who has been picked on can now say oh ok heck i can do something special too .thats what makes him special .he is a fighter in life.

  11. I think Haley should be the next american idol.

    • Scotty needs to go home. Haley or Lauren should win it.

  12. Scotty is by far the BEST! Not just does he have a great voice, he is confident, mature,and ys, he could be the new Elvis!!!! Hope Scotty is gOING to be the AMERICAN IDOL!!!

  13. I am rooting for Haley, Scotty and Lauren (in that order). The final five are all winners but I think Jacob and James are losing their focus. The pressure of the competition seems to be getting to them and they both lack stage presence. I give Haley the edge because of the two best performances the judge gave her for, (Bennie and the Jets) and (The house of the rising sun). I love playing both those performances over and over.
