American IdolAmerican Idol is down to the top three and it's anybody's guess as to who will go to next week's finale. Before the drama of the finale unfolds, we still have one week of top three fun left.

Tonight, Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina and Haley Reinhart will go head-to-head for a spot in the finals and they'll do it by singing the American Idol staple -- the judges' picks. Of course, those won't be the only songs they'll be singing, but they are the most anticipated.

During a trip to their hometowns over the weekend, the contestants got the news of what they'd be singing for their judges' pick.

Scotty McCreery is gearing up to take on the classic Kenny Rogers tune, She Believes in Me. Surprising -- no. Exciting -- yes!

Lauren Alaina will also dig into her country bag and tackle the popular Lee Ann Womack song, I Hope You Dance.

That leaves Haley Reinhart. She'll lend her big vocals to the angst-laden Alanis Morissette anthem, You Oughta Know. It will be interesting to see how she tackles that one. Will there be a bleep button?

What do you think of the judges' picks for the American Idol top three? Are they good choices or could you have done better? Tell us, we want to know.

Once again, the judges puts the screws to Haley. Scotty and Lauren got easy, boring songs that even I could sing. Randy and Jennifer have had it in for Haley for the past three weeks and they chose "You Oughta Know" on purpose. They chose the song and yet they berated her for the song choice??? I am proud of Haley for standing up to the judges. I don't know if I could take the criticism she has. Steven Tyler is the only judge with any real musical talent. Randy Jackson was in Journey for 5 seconds and Jennifer Lopez (Jenny from the Block) is a flygirl Beyonce wanna be. Lauren and Scotty are teenagers that have barely "been off the farm" and have no clue what the real world is about. Haley has a refreshing voice and she doesn't sound like everyone else. She is the true winner since won't win and can get her own music contract like Chris Daughtry, Adam Lambert and Jennifer Hudson. One final word, bring back Simon and Paula!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Even though Scotty sang the Kenny Rogers song flawlessly,I dont think it was fair to pick a song for him that 75% of the voters Never heard before. Those of us, Including yourselfs over 40 know Scotty did Great, But i must stress that the young viewers dont know who Kenny Rogers is. I hope you didnt hurt Scotty's chances of beind the next idol
