The Idol producers scoured through all of the song suggestions (submitted on Twitter with #IdolRequest”) and compiled a short list of approved songs. The contestants were then tasked with choosing two songs on the list to perform this evening.
For those too impatient to wait for tonight’s broadcast to see what songs the contestants selected, I have a complete run down of the songs each contestant will perform. Here is the complete set list:
“Valerie” by Amy Winehouse.
“My Body” by Young the Giants.
“Still of the Night” by Whitesnake.
“I don’t want to miss a thing” by Aerosmith.
“Sweater Weather” by The Neighbourhood.
“Say Something” by A Great Big World (featuring Christina Aguilera).
“Human” by Christian Perry.
“Summertime Sadness” by Lana Del Rey.
“Sing” by Ed Sheeran.
“How to Save a Life” by The Fray.
