There are so many songs they could pick from.

Scotty could sing "Down Home Girl" using his twangiest twang. And then pair with Lauren to sing "Jackson"

James could sing "Youngblood" or "Riot in Cellblock #9"

Haley could sing a Big Mama Thornton version of "Hound Dog" really well.

And Lauren could do "Is That All There Is".

But the girls might have a hard time getting votes unless they sing the most well known of Lieber and Stoller's songs.

I still think that they should all have to sing the same song. Often. Lauren is my least fave but I recognize the talent. Sometimes, James is my fave and sometimes Haley is my fave and sometimes Scotty is my fave. I like Haley best, I suppose, and have done so for awhile now but James and Scotty are just as good and often better; in their fashion. I dunno.

I didn't really like any of them all that much last night. I remember looking forward to Carrie Underwood singing. That hasn't happened for me so much this season. I think that Haley should pack for tonight.

Possible song choices for tonight in the article below (make sure to read all the way to the "updates" at the bottom.)

Tonight’s Top 3 performances on American Idol 2011 stands likely to be a pretty great show. After endless weeks of forcing square pegs through round holes the remaining singers will be taking on hand picked songs from the judges, Jimmy Iovine, and their own tastes. It’s hard to imagine this not being better than what we’ve been watching. What? You liked Young Blood and Love Potion No. 9?

So far we know one of the three songs each of the performers will do based on the judges’ assignments. Lauren will cover “I Hope You Dance.” Haley has “You Oughta Know.” Scotty takes on “She Believes In Me.” I’m looking forward to how they clean up Haley’s assignment considering it gets a little racy in parts. Last year Crystal Bowersox performed the song with Alanis Morissette which included such rewrites as “would she go down with you to the theatre?” Oh would she? To catch a matinée? Discount prices? What a bad girl! As long as it ends with the judges telling Haley the song choice wasn’t right then our night will be complete.
Now for the other two songs we don’t know anything for sure yet, but Branden put together an excellent list for this week’s “sing this, not that” with 2 songs for each.
Scotty’s own pick could be “Your Man” if he’s not saving his babylockthemdoors for the finale. Lauren could always go back to the treasure chest of her Miley mixtape if she wants to dig real deep shallow. And for Haley, I’m going to use up all three of my wishes and ask for another round of “Earth Song” dedicated especially to Randy and JLo. If she does that I might finally root for her and her balls of steel.
What do you want to her your favorite sing tonight on American Idol?

Update: Haley’s parents have spilled the beans. According to the parental units, Haley will also be singing “Rhiannon” from Fleetwood Mac and “What Should Never Be” by Led Zeppelin. Thanks for readers Ronhep and Jo for sharing the tip.
Update 2: FOX has expanded tonight’s show to 2 hours according to its main site. If you go to its Press site it still says 90 mins. So I’m guessing we are indeed going to get 20 minutes of singing and 100 minutes of filler and commercials. Awesome-O.

Well I was already not going to watch because I really don't like any of the final 3 but hearing that Haley is singing Rhiannon has truly made me glad I am not going to be watching.

^^^^^ :animated_rotfl:

I just hope that Scotty just sangs a good ole piece of cuntry music and doesn't try any emoting. He should take a note from Alan Jackson's workbook. Some people don't have to do anything but be.

P.S. In retrospect, and even though I think each final three contestant is talented in his/her own way, I think that none of them measure-up to James Durbin's beautiful voice. He might never become a big star but when he sits and sings a poignant ballad; it is memorable for me. I regret very much that he was voted-off and did not get the chance to compete for final three. It says a lot about the downside of American Idol mechanics to me.

I read somewhere that Nigel Lythgoe wants to change the voting system so that we can only vote once (not that Fox will let him do this). I'd like to see that happen. IMO it would result in the best singers staying the longest instead of the most "likeable" in the eyes (votes?) of pre-teens and folks my age.
