finale rumors...

Looks as though tonight's format will be sticking pretty close to the traditional formula for a finale performance episode.

Jordin Sparks and Blake Lewis will each sing three songs, an original choice, a reprise from this season and, of course, the dreaded coronation song.

Here are the rumored song choices and, while there has been no solid verification, they seem to be highly credible.

Blake will lead off, after having won the coin toss but deferring the choice to Jordin, and will repeat his BonJovi night selection, You Give Love a Bad Name. He will also perform another Maroon 5 number, She Will be Loved, in addition to the crappy winner's single.

Jordin will close the show and has chosen to repeat Broken Wing, her song choice from Martina McBride night, Christina Aguilera's Fighter and, of course, the crappy winner's song.

Rumors are also spilling in surrounding the Wednesday finale extravaganza and are including names like Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Hicks, Jennifer Hudson, Smokey Robinson, Gladys Knight, Doug E. Fresh, the Winans, and a Beatles medley. Don't know how much of it is true, but we still have 24-plus hours to find out.

In other news...

Paula broke her nose in a fall. She was trying to save her dog. Uh huh. That's the story.

And Nigel says they spent too much time on mentors and not enough time on contestants. Gee. Ya think?

If you come across any credible spoilers or any additional bodily injuries, post them in the comments.

UNCONFIRMED: Rumor is that the winning coronation song is This is My Now. Listen to it here.

"spent too much time on mentors and not enough time on contestants"

they're finally realizing that now? what about spending too much time on bad singers or singers that weren't that bad but didn't even make it to Hollywood?

I agree with Robin. Way too much stupid nonsense in the auditions week, way too much time on mentors, and let's not forget what we've all been talking about this season....way too much time hawking products.

Is Daughtry not appearing in the finale?????

I was hoping Jordin woud do "Broken Wing" as her reprise performance. Now, I would like for AI to let the finalists sing the entire song insted of taking a 3 minute platinum record and turning it into a 90 second sound bite. It's the finals people!!!! These two deserve some air time.
