American Idol Spoilers

If we’ve learned anything from watching Idol over so many seasons, it’s that picking the right song for the right moment is a make or break decision. A great singer can select a song that doesn’t quite work for their voice, or isn’t the right selection for that particular round. That wrong choice can sink an otherwise favorite frontrunner, and that’s especially true in the pre-voting rounds.
