American Idol 9 Top 3 – What Should the Idols Sing

*Are you attending The Top 3 performance rehearsal tomorrow night? I need a blog rehearsal to report song spoilers! If you are willing and able, email me at mjsbigblog at gmail dot com.

The Top 3 take the stage Tuesday night to sing two songs. One of the picks is the Judges Choice, revealed during the contestants hometown visits on Friday. Ellen DeGeneres chose “Maybe I’m Amazed” by Paul McCartney for Crystal Bowersox, Simon Cowell chose “Hallelujah” for Lee DeWyze and Kara DioGuardi and Randy Jackson chose “Daughters” by John Mayer for Casey James.

The second song is purely up to the contestants. What would you like to hear the Idols sing? Is there a song you’ve always hoped they would tackle?

Faced with so many choices, I’m having a hard time deciding. In a perfect world, I would love to hear Crystal Bowersoxl do a Joni Mitchell song. Or maybe, a twist on something modern. Crystal does Gaga? That would be interesting.

How about Lee DeWyze taking on Nirvana?  Casey James and the Black Crowes would be a perfect fit, I think.  What do you think?

By the way, tweets indicate that the Idols are all heading back to Los Angeles for finale rehearsals. So far, we know for sure that Christina Aguilera and Kris Allen will be performing.

After the finale on May 26 the Idols dive straight into tour rehearsals.  The tour begins on July 1 in Michigan.
