'American Idol' Frank Sinatra week: What should the Top 5 sing?

29 April 2010 10:45 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The "American Idol" contestants are being saddled with the songs of Ol' Blue Eyes for this coming week. What should they sing?

This is probably the hardest week for song choice so far. Shania Twain may be limited but at least her songs were written in the last 15 years.

Don't get us wrong -- love Sinatra. But his songs are from the 40s and 50s and are classics, so the Idols are stuck in a catch-22 of "make it your own, make it current" and "don't mess with an original." It's a very hard line to walk and the judges are really harping on it this season. But here are our choices for the Idols:

Crystal Bowersox, "One for My Baby"

Raise your hand if you vote for "Idol" and remember Bette Midler singing this to Johnny Carson. That's what we thought. Regardless, Crystal should glam it up even more »
