Proving that "American Idol" is on the cutting edge of the music industry, tonight the wannabes will be singing the hits of ... Neil Diamond?! And you thought Andrew Lloyd Webber was lame! TMZ moles have once again obtained the song list, but we got some bad news -- the Taylor Hicks' in-training are singing two songs each. It's gonna be a long one, folks.
