Recommended Posts

Ben/Tanner - a country ballad. 
Ryan - A standart ballad, maybe while playing piano (assuming he wins the 4-way). 

Desz - A more uptempo RnB, something that Tamara would normaly perform.  Maybe in Aretha's lane.  
Cami - Something jazzy/slow tempo/a bit gloomy.  
Madeline - maybe something similar to Maren Morris/Kacey Musgraves/Kelsea ballerine styles. 
Syd - staying in his bluesy lane. 
Bailey Rae - a very traditional country uptempo song (going afeter that minivan country vote, heh). 
Ian/Jim - Something soulful and folksy. 
Payge - she'll go a more rebel attitude rock/indie vibe
Carter - an inspirational bop, something similar to Christina Aguilera's "Beautifull".

WTW/Tamara/John H. - I believe they will stay in their lanes, but I have no exact idea. 

PS. I would laugh if Carter, Cami or Madeline started singing a Kelly Clarkson song and Payge, a No Doubt song.

Songs I'd like to see and think contestants could (potentially) do well with:

 

Team Kelly (straightforward enough)

Cami: Sia - Elastic Heart

Madeline: Kelsea Ballerini - Peter Pan

Desz: Whitney Houston - I Believe in You and Me

Tanner: Kenny Chesney - Never Wanted Nothin' More

 

Team Gwen (where half the team was a pain in the rear to pin down)

Ben: God Gave Me You - Blake Shelton

Carter: Calum Scott - You Are The Reason

Joseph: Childish Gambino - Redbone

Payge: The Joke - Brandi Carlile

 

Team Legend (where the entire team was a pain to pin down)

Chloe: Sade - No Ordinary Love

John: Adele - All I Ask

Tamara: Mary J. Blige - No More Drama

Bailey: Willie Nelson - Always on My Mind

 

Team Blake (the easiest of the bunch)

Ian: Johnny Cash - I Walk the Line

Sid: Elton John - Rocket Man

Jim: Stevie Ray Vaughn - Pride and Joy

WTW: The Band Perry - Done

Ali already KILLED this song, and I don' but, well.. let's see her try if she ever sing this.

 

Also, Bailey singing Always On My Mind would be a really good threat for Team John, I love her cover of that song that I found on youtube, let us see

 

Overall, good song choices!! Can definitely see some singing these songs

Carter might sing You Are The Reason (maybe for the finale)

This would actually be a really good choice for him and could definitely seal the deal, I read somewhere he is a big fan of Ariana but hopefully strays away from her catalogue on the show. I fear there could be few songs that would go over well with the audience and that he genuinely wants to sings so let's hope him and Gwen are gonna be smart about it

I hope Ryan sticks with popera, he could do wanders with several songs like "You Raise Me Up" or "Nessum Dorma", or "Adagio". He could very welm pull it off.

 

I hope Sid stays in the blues lane, he has the voice for it. Hope he gets an excellent song, cause I want him to go through.

 

This might be a little weird but I could see Desz nailing some country Rose Short style.

 

Give Payge another ballad like "ITWWE" and you'll see wanders.

 

Ian could pull out some Kenny Rogers, and we could have something great here.

 

I would love to see John H go back to jazz, so perhaps a great standard could work for him, like some Ella, or Billie Holliday.

 

I'm not a WTW fan, but give them some Dixie Chicks and they could do good with it.

 

Carter could go back to pop or continue with more gospelly type of songs like "You Say". "You Are the Reason" was mentioned above, I think that would be great for him.

 

Bailey, Ben and Tanner will very likely stay in their lanes.

 

Jim could do some Ray Lamontagne, or some Otis Redding, since his voice is more soulful than country sounding.

 

Cami should stick with a song that allows her to showcase her tone, which is her biggest strength. Some Billie Eilish might do it, and I know she is a fan.

 

I could see Madeline being given something pop, but I hope she sticks with country.

 

Chloe could stick with the R&B from her KO. She could do Sade or Brandy.

 

Joseph could pull an emotional pop ballad. Something in the likes of Michael Bolton or "Superstar" by The Carpenters.

 

Tamara should stick to fun songs instead of ballads, she is able to shine more in that style.

Now that you mention it, I could see Tamara attempting an ARUTW moment like Katie in S17 playoffs, but I don't imagine her doing all that well with a ballad. 

 

Also, I loved all three of Katie's pre-lives, but all of Tamara's were just good at best and meh at worst imo.

I love Ali’s version, but I was running short on ideas for Chloe (Chloe and Joseph were probably the two hardest to nail down song-wise of the Top 16) and I think Sade’s pretty in her wheelhouse so from there I picked the one song I know the show has rights to.

 

Bailey was one of the easier members of the team to nail down, I struggled for a bit and then remembered that the spoiler thread had talked about that particular cover (at which point I started kicking myself for not thinking about that as an obvious song choice).

 

There’s one or two song choices I’m less thrilled with from my list, but I’m glad you liked them!

I have no idea where in the country wheelhouse Desz would start (something ballad-ish-but-midtempo would likely work best) but that’d be a smart move to get voters on her side, and we’ve seen Kelly do some genre-weaving with previous artists so it’s not too far out of the realm of possibility.

LMAO I can't predict because I will flop hard but I will say this, I think John H might sing opera in the PO because he is actually an OPERA SINGER.

 

There is no way in the world that TPTB will let John Holiday sing opera. That lane is reserved exclusively for Ryan this season.

I’ll throw this out there.

 

WTW - “Coat Of Many Colors” 

 

Given there’s a cover of it on their YT, I’ll be shocked if they don’t sing it at some point. 

a very good cover imo, at that. if they make it, that would be a great semifinals song. it also is literally a song about a mother and a kid so it would work perfectly for their dynamic
