“American Idol” judges reveal song choices for final three

By Sean O’Connell During their journeys home, the final three “American Idol” contestants learned which songs the judges requested for an upcoming performance.

Stop reading now if you’d rather watch the episodes later this week and learn via the telecast.

Still with me? OK. Haley Reinhart went home to Deer Park, Ill., where she met with fans and performed an impromptu concert. Later during the visit, Reinhart learned that the judges want her to sing Alanis Morrisette’s “You Oughtta Know,” according to Billboard.

On his trip back to Garner, N.C., Scotty McCreery learned that the judges want him to tackle Kenny Rogers’ “She Believes In Me.” Excellent choice.

And finally, cameras followed Lauren Alaina back to Chattanooga, Tenn., where the 16-year-old (who also visited tornado-ravaged areas in nearby Georgia) heard she’d be performing Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance.”

That will be a showstopper. This could be the best week in an already entertaining “Idol” season. The episodes air later this week.
