Radio Hits and the Idol Challenge

This coming Sunday, the six Idol hopefuls will sing the greatest hits on radio. And in true Idol style, this week won't be without twists.

Each of the finalists would be "adopted" by an FM radio station (either from 90.7 Love Radio, Yes FM 101.1, Dream FM 106.7, or 93.9 i-FM) not only to promote the Philippine Idol CD, but also to learn the goings-on in the music industry. The radio stations would also provide a shortlist of songs whom their adopted Idol should sing.

According to reports, the Idol finalists will sing two songs this week: one from the list, the other chosen by their co-finalist. Gian Magdangal would choose a song for Jan Nieto and vice versa, same between Mau Marcelo and Miguel Mendoza, and Pow Chavez to Ken Dingle.

We have received unverified reports on six of the song choices:

* Jan Nieto - You Are My Song by Martin Nievera
* Ken Dingle - Everything I Do, I Do It for You by Bryan Adams
* Miguel Mendoza - Hanggang by Wency Cornejo
* Mau Marcelo - Mahal Naman Kita by Jamie Rivera
* Pow Chavez - Love Moves in Mysterious Ways by Julia Fordham
* Gian Magdangal - Bakit Pa Ba? by Jay-R
