1. Since You've Been Gone
. (As good as Aretha's version ever was).
2. My Funny Valentine
(Historic. Should be retired from competition and placed in the IDOL vaults. This was the greatest single performance the IDOL stage has ever seen).
3. I'm A Woman
(Her singoff version was actually the best of the THREE times she sang it. This was one of the classiest sendoffs in AI history).
Alternate(s): a. For Once In My Life
. (This was our startling introduction to her. I still laugh at the stunned look on Simon's face when he realized how good she was).
(But only if it is the updated Stephanie Mills version - The one with Take Six doing backgrounds. NOT THE DIANA ROSS VERSION).
c. I've Got Rhythm
(Loved the intro and conclusion. Would like to see them both expanded).
d. There Will Come A Day
(Very Inspirational. Second half of this was exceptionally strong). e. Sway (A beautiful, sultry performance. Simon was wrong for cutting her down, but the fix was already in by then).
