    Whatever suits you best. If you have a big strong voice, a huge pop ballad is probably best. If you are from the south & love country, some Martina, Shania, Carrie, Kellie, or Taylor is good.

    Musical Theatre singers can and have make/made it. Songs from Wicked and Hairspray aren't the best for auditions, though, because you aren't showing them that you can be more than a musical theater person.

    I believe AI searches for the most marketable singers. It's up to the voters to decide the outcome, so sometimes popularity wins over talent.
