American Idol: What Should the Top 10 Sing for 'Top 10s of 2010-2014' Night?

AMERICAN IDOL SEASON 13 TOP 10This week’s American Idol performance telecast (Wednesday, 8/7c on Fox) will bring new meaning to the expression “tens across the board.”

Yes indeed, the official theme for the week is “Top 10 Sings Top 10” — in which the remaining contestants must tackle Top 10 hits from 2010 to the present.

To avoid an onslaught of overdone ditties (on reality singing competitions, anyhow) like “Radioactive,” “Stars” and “You and I” (which should have its jersey hung from the rafters thanks to Season 10’s Haley Reinhart), I’ve cooked up a dream set list of unexpected possibilities.

Check out my picks below, then hit the comments and do a little more brainstorming!

Dream Set List for “Top 10s of 2010 and Beyond” Night
Majesty Rose: The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey” or a slowed-down, acoustic twist on Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been

Alex Preston: Usher’s “More” (acoustic, of course) or The Script’s “Hall of Fame

Jena Irene: Karmin’s “Brokenhearted” or Sara Bareilles’ “Brave” or Fantasia’s “Bittersweet

Jessica Meuse: Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart” or Phillip Phillips’ “Gone Gone Gone

M.K. Nobilette: Kelly Rowland’s “Motivation” or Miguel’s “Adorn” or Alicia Keys’ “Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart

Sam Woolf: Hot Chelle Rae’s “Tonight Tonight” or Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together

Malaya Watson: Mike Posner’s “Cooler Than Me” or La Roux’s “Bulletproof

Caleb Johnson: Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” or Daughtry’s “Waiting for Superman

C.J. Harris: Kenny Chesney & Grace Potter’s “You and Tequila” or Jason Aldean’s “Fly-Over States” or American Authors’ “Best Day of My Life

Dexter Roberts: Carrie Underwood’s “Two Black Cadillacs” or Little Big Town’s “Pontoon” (maybe covering a female artist can help him avoid another karaoke moment?)

Your turn! David Cook up a list of your favorite recent Top 10s for the Season 13 Top 10 below!
