I can put money that Phillip Phillips is singing “The Letter” a la Lee DeWyze in Season 9 and it’ll probably be just as bad.  Jessica is likely singing “Proud Mary” or “River Deep Mountain High” but I think Skylar Laine could be singing the latter.  “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” has Joshua Ledet all over it.  Hollie with “Fortunate Son?”  Not too sure about that.

The British theme has some really good song choices in there.  Hollie should singing Dusty Springfield’s powerful ballad.  Nadia Turner had a moment with it back in Season Four.  P2 is probably going Taylor Hicks/Danny Gokey and doing Joe Cocker.  I REALLY HOPE Jessica is singing “Bleeding Love.”  Could be her breakout moment.  Joshua singing “To Love Somebody” seems fitting.

What do you speculate?
