"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

Who would take the time to comment on this article only to bash it and insult TMZ? Very obviously you are reading the website. If you don't like, don't read it and keep your asinine comments to yourself.

David Cook: "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion .... HOW DARE YOU! The poor boy has been going through hell, and you think that's funny? His brother had a setback with his CANCER, he broke up with his girlfriend, and he is under a lot of pressure. He was in the HOSPITAL for crying out loud! When someone has health issues, that is NOT funny. If anything happens to David, you are going to feel really bad - and you should! You owe a huge apology this time... this is really low - even for you, TMZ.
