Soul and R n' B Week

After a rousing Original Pilipino Music Week (spiced-up by a "Special Dedication" theme), our Philippine Idol finalists will be singing top Soul or Rhythm and Blues selections.

Here is the partial list of songs, thanks to our generous sources. Again, help us with the artists who sang some of the songs:

* What's Goin' On? - Marvin Gaye
* I Feel Good - James Brown
* R-E-S-P-E-C-T. - Aretha Franklin
* You Got It Bad - Usher
* Proud Mary - Tina Turner
* Crazy In Love - Beyonce
* I'd Rather - Luther Vandross
* Natural Woman
* Could It Be I'm Fallin' In Love
* Let's Stay Together

Several Idol fanatics have speculated that Mau will breeze through this round, while Armarie will have a difficult time with the theme (as one viewer said, "unless she would kundiman-ize the song").

But one thing is for sure: This would be another interesting week. Not only because we have a rather upbeat theme, but also because two contestants will be eliminated this Sunday.

So remember, don't just vote once, not twice, but a lot of times. Make your Idol bets stay in the competition.
