Didn't know where to put this, but I think an interesting theme would be:

Decade done by Past Idol Contestants On Tour
Separate it to:
1960s and before
2000s and beyond

Would be interesting to have this theme, since it shows that at least one of these contestants thought it was wise to choose one of these songs. Another note: These are songs that clearly American Idol has cleared for the show, not just for the tour. Yeah, there's a lot of old stuff we're tired of, but it would be interesting if the contestants look at the newer ones that have been attempted (read: 2000s and beyond).
