David Archuleta Could Cover Sinatra Songs - but Idol's 9 Top 5??

Harry Connick Jr. will mentor the American Idol 9 Top 5 this week as they tackle the songs of Frank Sinatra.  Harry Connick will be he first Idol mentor to arrange the songs and write the orchstrations for the contestants.

Perhaps it's just me but Frank Sinatra songs for this group of Idols seems all wrong.  I can easily see David Archuleta singing almost any song from the list provided as his voice is so velvet he can cover ballads and make them work for him.  What can we expect from Connick for each of these idols.  For what it's worth here are my picks.

Lee - I've Got The World On A String
Casey - Street of Dreams
Aaron - That's All
Michael  One For My Baby
Crystal - You Do Something To Me

It will be interesting to see which songs are picked and how the arrangements will be changed to update and accommodate their styles.  What would you choose for each of the Top 5?

Just for the record I would love to hear how David Archuleta would cover Young At Heart!  It is one of my favorite Sinatra songs!
