I just found this and don't know how accurate it is:

Spoiler:
Judges Pick a Song
Clive Davis Picks a Song
The Contestant Picks a Song

Judges' Choices:

1) Simon chose for Jordin Sparks - “Wishing on a Star” by Rose Royce.
2) Paula chose for Blake Lewis – ”Roxanne” by the Police.
3) Randy chose for Melinda - “I Believe in You and Me” by Whitney Houston.


The other picks were still up in the air.

I realize people want Melinda to go home, but do those voting for her in the poll actually think she will have the worst performance?

Unless I misheard her, Melinda just thanked Randy Johnson for his choice.

As long as Melinda wins the whole thing I don't really care who she beats...although the sooner Blake is gone the better.

The Melinda love-fest was unwarranted tonight - I think when the judges re-watch, they'll notice how she butchered an attempted high note in the Whitney Houston song and then membled her way through the 2nd stanza of I'm a Woman. I thought her last two were not so hot. Blake did pretty well - I enjoyed his last song. Jordin was pretty consistent, too, although her admitting to not know a song done in the 80s (I think the Cover Girls redid Wishing on a Star as a mild hit) makes me want to not include her. I just don't see Melinda's pop appeal at all.

Blah.

I used to be a fan of Blake and was hoping to hear him bust out with a great version of "Roxanne", really shouting out the name... and he didn't. Probably couldn't.

I am still hoping that Shrek gets sent home tomorrow, but I'm hoping that Jordin wins it all.

I enjoyed Blake tonight. His last song really entertained me. I hope he gets to the finals, if only for bringing something, anything new to the proceedings. I usually like Jordin, but thought her first 2 songs were a bit zzzzzzzzz. Melinda was perfect. As always. zzzzzzzzzz.

She did it on purpose because the official who was reading the fax from Randy about her song choice said Randy Johnson and then realized his mistake and said Jackson. She purposefully repeated the "Randy Johnson".

Giving them songs originally performed by Sting and Whitney Houston is just mean.
