The judges choices for the final three American Idol contestants have made their way onto the world wide web (they will sing one song that the judges have chosen, one song of their own choosing, and one song chosen by Clive Davis).
And they are..
Simon has chosen "Wishing on a Star" by Rose Royce for Jordin Sparks.
Paula has chosen "Roxanne" by The Police for Blake Lewis.
Randy has chosen "I Believe in You and Me" for Melinda Doolittle.
I say kudos to Simon and especially Paula, but Randy, what were you thinking? Not only has the song been sung several times on the show before (memorably by Jennifer Hudson in that pink easter dress in the Wildcard round of Season 3), but it kinda plays to Melinda's same-sameness. How about a rock song, or a Tina Turner song? I'm disappointed in you, Randy.
What do you all think of the judges' song choices for the contestants?
