So we had a thread like this before it got wiped out lol and since I'm a very 'what could've been' person I like to know this kind of stuff. Post here any song that you know a contestant/snowflake would've sung if they didn't get eliminated and I'll add it to the list.

I decided to start this since Khalea Lynee just revealed that her wildcard song was Hero by Mariah Carey, maybe she would've dethroned HS with an even bigger note :whistling: . (Posting the ones I remember/asked)

I remember I've heard Maelyn would sing a Kacey Musgraves' song (maybe Rainbow?) if she needed to sing an Instant Save. A good strategy of John pandering to the country audience!

 

Also I remember that Hunter or Gwen commented if he reached the finale he would sing (FINALLY!) a solo song by Coldplay. I think it would be Yellow

Slight correction to the original post:

 

From Season 7, Damien actually DID sing "Grenade."

 

That season had a really strange elimination format where, out of the Top 5, the top 3 were announced while the bottom 2 (Damien and Taylor John Williams) were eliminated. Then they brought back all of the eliminated contestants from the Top 12, and every single one of them got to sing for the fourth Wildcard spot in the finale. Damien sang "Grenade" for the Wildcard save. It definitely wasn't a "what-would-have-been" scenario because he actually sang it. (Also, he won the save!)

 

The Top 3 (Matt McAndrew, Chris Jamison, and Craig Wayne Boyd) had songs that would have been, since they never had to perform their Wildcard save songs. You can find all of them in their Complete Season Collection packages on iTunes.

 

For the songs that the Top 3 would have done if they had to sing for the Wildcard save:

  • Matt McAndrew would have sung "Imagine" by John Lennon.
  • Chris Jamison would have sung "I'll Be" by Edwin McCain.
  • Craig Wayne Boyd would have sung "Anymore" by Travis Tritt.

Imagine and I'll Be:

Fixed, how did I miss that lol.

Also, you wouldn't have something on Vanessa wouldn't you :bleh: ? Like her 2nd IS song or plans for the finale? I bet I'll die without ever knowing what that queen had in store for us.

Ellie Lawrence would’ve sang New Americana for the t12 in season 9 and spensha baker’s IS song was angel from Montgomery

 

Also I know that Chevel said what her IS song was but I don’t remember what it was specifically (Walking after midnight- patsy cline maybe?)

Reagan Strange (S15 T8) IS song for Top 10 week would have been "Warrior" by Demi Lovato. We all know what happened that week. She eventually recorded a cover of Warrior after the season is over.

why did she sing wherever you will go for t8 IS then? she technically didn't use her IS before that so it's strange that she didn't sing warrior for her IS that week then

They probably have different IS songs per week and rehearsed them along with their regular songs that week.
