megan did some bob marley/lauryn hill   (whatever that means)
allison – dont speak by no doubt

Scott – “Just The Way You Are”

This is the performance order.   Apparently there are technical difficulties on the Idol set. The above is the performance order. I will fill the rest in as it becomes available.

According to JoesPlace, Miley Cyrus is taping a performance at the Idol rehearsal today. Yipee.

I took the Pool widgets down–they were slowing down the site. If you need to maintain your pool picks go to: Fun Office Pools

No, I do not have any song spoilers yet.

Although there have been the usual rumors and speculation about what the Idols will be singing when they take the stage tonight. The theme (as I reported Friday) is Top Downloads. Pretty vague theme, no? Paula called it “#1 Downloads” in a recent radio interview, but the theme could be broader than just #1s. We’ll find out soon enough.

Peeps have been yacking about song choices and mulling over the rumors in this thread all week. Let’s continue the discussion here while we wait for dress rehearsal spoilers.

If you were at the the show and know what went down…shoot me an email at mjsbigblog @ gmail dot com. Thanks. When we know more, I’ll update this post. So, stay tuned!
