Personally, I don't understand why they couldn't make the music a bit funkier given Jessica's R&B vibe. I know they're looking for radio play, but how about even a more Gwen Stefani edge to it?

Siobhan Magnus & Linda Ronstadt?

Many fans of Siobhan Magnus say she reminds them of Linda Ronstadt. If fact, I've been wanting Siobhan to sing "Blue Bayou" just to see how much she would sound like Linda. But the two actually have a song in common, and it's not one you would expect. It's a song called "Poor Wandering One" from the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta "The Pirates of Penzance." That's right, two rocker girls singing in an operetta.

First up, it's Linda Ronstadt from around 1980. She skips the high note (Eb6) at the end:

Then it's Siobhan Magnus in 2006 at the age of just 16, walloping the high notes, including the Eb6 at the end:

Guy Really Knows Jessica's Prince Song

On the Idol Tour, Jessica Sanchez sings Prince's "How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore" which I was surprisingly unfamiliar with. I don't know how Jessica knows it, except that it was covered by Alicia Keys. But in this YouTube video by user kishikcm from Florida, the guy heard in the video certainly knows it. His reactions are hilarious:
