Spoiler Alert: What Will the Top Three Sing?

Warning: If you don’t want to know any of the songs the top three are going to do tomorrow night, stop reading now.

Still with me?

“Idol” sites all over the Internet are reporting the song choices of the top three as they’ve started to leak out.

The judges’ choices always leak since they’re usually announced at one of the homecoming stops. Paula chose for David A. and she’s chosen “And So It Goes” by Billy Joel. Simon got David C. and he chose Roberta Flack’s “First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,” which you know Simon is using as a major test. That means Syesha was stuck with Randy who saddled her with a terrible choice--Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You.” Isn’t Randy always the one telling contestants not to take on the big vocalists? So why would he make Syesha take on one of them?

Does anyone smell some sabotage going on here?

The producers’ choices and the contestants’ choices have not completely come into focus. Here’s what we do know. According to several sites, David A. will sing Dan Fogelberg’s “Longer.“ Whether that’s the producers’ choice or Jeff’s--I mean, David’s--is not clear. David C. revealed in one of his homecoming interviews that he has chosen Collective Soul’s “The World I Know,” which will be fantastic, I just hope it doesn’t come off as safe.

What do you think about these choices?
