"Idol" Wannabes Gag Us with Inspiration

4/5/2008 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Classic songs have been butchered every week on "American Idol" -- and next week they are taking stabs at the ones that inspire them. Jesus take the wheel!

Until TMZ moles obtain the song list -- and we will -- we've created a song list the wannabes should consider for themselves.

David Archuleta: "Papa Don't Preach" by Madonna
Kristy Lee Cook: "Don't Speak" by No Doubt
Michael Johns: "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport" by Rolf Harris
Brooke White: "Crybaby" by Mariah Carey
David Cook: "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion
Jason Castro: "I Am Not My Hair" by India.Arie
Carly Smithson: "I've Got You Under My Skin" by Frank Sinatra
Syesha Mercado: "Don't Forget About Us" by Mariah Carey

And what is the appeal with Jason? Is it his dread locks? Is it his sweet, shy demeanor? Is it that he can play a guitar? It can't be his singing!

I don't understand what Michael Johns is thinking. That is a song off the Wiggles, Simon is going to hate it.

David Cook's heart better go on because I have money on him. And hospital drama aside, he's the best. By a big margin too.
