Somewhere, "High School Student" Aaron Kelly is doing a happy dance. That's because the Top 6 have been tasked with singing the songs of Shania Twain, a theme that should be near and dear to the country crooners heart.

Shania, who has already made an appearance as a guest judge this season, will return as a mentor and the source of songs for the Top 6. As a mentor, we hope that Shania brings the same level-headed expertise and wry sense of humor that made her our favorite guest judge of the audition.

Though she's only been releasing albums since the early '90s, Shania's success has been unparalleled. Her album Come on Over is the best selling album of all-time by a female musician and is the best selling album in the history of country music. She hearlded the era of the country cross-over artist, paving the way for the likes of Faith Hill and American Idol's own Carrie Underwood.

While Shania's catalog is rich with choices, it could prove a difficult week for the remaining four guys. Many of Shania's best known songs are female-centered and we just can't imagine Casey James, Big Mike or Lee Dewyze being excited to sing songs like "Man! I Feel Like A Woman" or "The Woman In Me (Needs the Man in You)." Luckily, there are plenty of Shania songs that don't have "woman" in the title.
