Friday was 'Homecoming Day' for the American Idol Top 3 contestants. During this whirl-wind meet-the-fans/media blitz - which included parades, singing of "The National Anthem", interviews and their first chance to sing original songs for their fans - Crystal Bowersox, Casey James and Lee DeWyze learned what song the judges have picked for them to perform this Tuesday.
This week, the Top 3 will perform 2 songs. One will be the judges' choice and the other is the finalist's choice.
Ellen Degeneres picked "Maybe I'm Amazed" by Paul McCartney for Crystal.
Casey James will be singing "Daughters" by John Mayer, chosen by Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardia.
Simon Cowell picked "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen for Lee to perform. Tim Urban already sang it this season and Jason Castro gave a great performance of Jeff Buckley's version of "Hallelujah" during Season 7. (It's on Jason Castro's new album...you gotta get it!)
So you don't have to go searching around, I've included the videos below.
