this just in...

It's down to hours before the last performance episode of the seventh season, and spoilers are coming in.

Here's what we know about tonight:

Archuleta will sing Imagine, a reprise from his semi-final competition.

NEW! David Cook will become the first American Idol to get clearance for a U2 song in competition, and will sing Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.

As more song spoilers come in, they will be added here.

But while we're waiting for tonight's news, how about one more trip down finale memory lane, ending with my personal favorite moment - evah.

It was season four, which had been a refreshing one after the dismal season three. The finale promised the "biggest medley yet" and did it ever deliver. Each of the 12 kids got time with a celebrity guest, including a stunning performance by Vonzell Solomon with Billy Preston, but the highlight was the end.

Whouda thunk Skynyrd would ever perform on the Idol stage?

I never get tired of watching that.

OK... you're right. If asked, I would have picked Kelly's coronation as my favorite finale, but the absolute and contagious JOY from Bo singing with and accepted by HIS idols was truly a transcendant moment. Thanks for the memory!

Thanks Jennifer - It is about the only thing from Season Four that I remember.Whenever I see the commercial with Meatloaf I think about the night he sang with Katherin McPhee (Season Five finale) that was classic too. Not neccessarily good but memorable.

That moment is still saved on my tivo. What's more, I still watch it regularly. I love Carrie with Rascal Flatts, too, and how excited she looked to sing with them. But the closing number took the cake. Who ever thought Skynyrd would be a part of my favorite moments in idol history?
