The final three are poised to take the American Idol stage for the final performance show before next week’s live finale. The top two contenders will duke it out at the Nokia, singing three songs apiece.

Thanks to The Idol Pad, we now know what themes the finalists will be tackling in the penultimate episode of Idol’s twelfth season:

For the finale, there are three themes – Jimmy Iovine’s 2nd Choice, Simon Fuller’s Choice, Coronation Singles *, and Reprisals, billed as “Favorite Performances”.

* producers are considering original songs that contestants personally had a hand in writing

So…how bout that?

Yeah, I think I’m ready for this thing to be over.

Really? They had no other theme than "Jimmy Iovine's 2nd choice"?

@Mikhail XO Yeah.. since the results show will be the actual final episode. Makes sense to me.

@Mikhail XO Yeah. That was my point. It's always those so I don't see a need for a post. lol

@NickRoman1  Yeah. I always remember it being the coronation song, one that someone chooses for them and then redoing one. So they get to pick that but it's not a very long list...just them redoing it which to me was always boring.

@KariCook @Mikhail XO I could have sworn that the contestant got to pick at least one of the songs, but looking back, that hasn't really been true since season 7.

@Mikhail XO @NickRoman1 @Dirty Wang Gurrrlll.. you be trippin' ;) Here's da proofizzle:

1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Idol_(season_12) --> Bottom table titled "Episode List" lists performance and results separately.

2) http://www.tvrage.com/American_Idol/episode_list --> Some other random site that itemizes AI episodes... 

3) http://thepiratebay.sx/search/american%20idol/0/99/0 --> Same episode numbering system is used by torrent users! 

I gotta back ma homegirl Nick up! 

Sorry, I was just playing an AI drinking game where we take a drink every time one of the judges lies or speaks in undeserved hyperbole and now I'm tipsy and typing in ebonics or something.....

@Mikhail XO @NickRoman1 @Dirty Wang Unsurprisingly, yes. 

But I wasn't much of a participant since the servers kept crashing. Idol and The Voice need to never be scheduled together again.

@Mikhail XO @NickRoman1 @Dirty Wang The performance show and results show don't count as one episode, even if we occasionally classify each week as Week [X] of the competition. Sorry, beloved, but this is the first argument with me you're not winning. ;)
