Personally, we wonder how much control the contestants had with the song listings on these discs, mostly because we can’t see any way in the world that Jessica would want to highlight a coronation song in “Change Nothing” that she was never that thrilled about to begin that. That one track omitted, the rest of this list is pretty great — though we don’t know why in the world Skylar Laine’s album does not include either “Stay With Me” or “Tattoos on This Town” — arguably two of her best performances of the entire season.
The “American Idol” season 11 tour is set to kick off next month just after the fourth of July — and just at you would expect, we are going to have plenty of coverage of some of the memorable stops on the road. Can you see yourself picking up any of these discs?
