Julia Fordham — “East West” (from Collection) — East

MONDAY: Norah Jones — “Jesus, Etc. (Sad, Sad Songs)”
(from The Fall [Deluxe Edition]) — Jesus,

TUESDAY: Bernard Butler — “Not Alone” (from People Move On) — Not

WEDNESDAY: Kris Allen — “Alright With Me” (from Kris Allen) — Alright

THURSDAY: Lorrie Morgan — “Good As I Was to You”
(from To Get to You) — Good

FRIDAY: Doyle Bramhall II & Smokestack — “Send Some Love”
(from Welcome) — Send

SATURDAY: Christina Aguilera featuring Nicki Minaj — “Woohoo”
(from Bionic) — Woohoo

SUNDAY: Linda Eder — “Once Upon a Dream”
(from Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical) — Once
