American Idol 2012 Speculation: Our Song Picks for the Top 3
Can you believe we're down to the Top 3 already?! With just three finalists remaining, that means each of our Idols will be singing three songs tomorrow night. It's all about choices this week — the judges get a song choice, Jimmy Iovine gets a song choice, and the contestants get a song choice. We have no idea what Jimmy or the judges might do, but here's what we'd like to see the contestants pick for themselves.
Joshua Ledet: "When Doves Cry" by Prince We know Joshua can sing the hell out of a big show-stopping ballad, and we're sure that the judges and/or Jimmy will provide him with the chance to do just that, so for our choice, we wanted to pick something funky and fabulous. Joshua would tear the roof off the place with this song, and we'd love every minute of it.
Jessica Sanchez: "Breakaway" by Kelly Clarkson Sure, it's a bold move taking on the Original Idol, Queen Kelly, but this is the time to be bold! Jessica's song choices tend to feel a little too old for her — sure, she's got tons of talent and experience, but she's still just a teenager. We think this one would be both age-appropriate and a fantastic opportunity for her to show off her vocal abilities.
Phillip Phillips: "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen This might sound crazy, but sing it, maybe? Seriously, this song is a huge hit right now, and we would totally groove on an acoustic, Phillip Phillips'ed version. Wouldn't you? It's a smart time for Phillip to pull out something unexpected and ensure that he makes the finale. Plus, "Call Me Maybe" is a built-in reminder for fans to vote! We call that a win-win.
