American Idol Top 3 song choices

The American Idol Season 11 Top 3 finalists -- Phillip Phillips, Jessica Sanchez, and Joshua Ledet -- will get to sing three songs each on tomorrow's performance night.

The songs comprise of mentor Jimmy Iovine's choice, their personal choice, and judges' choice.

Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe on Twitter hinted three songs of the finalists:

(1) "Imagine" - John Lennon
(2) "Beggin'" - Madcon
(3) "I'll Be There" - Jackson 5 / Mariah Carey

So who is singing which? Let me hear your guesses.

For the other two songs, I'd like Jessica Sanchez do a soul/R&B with Donny Hathaway's "A Song For You." and Beyonce's hit "Love on Top" (which she had a cover in YouTube).

For Joshua Ledet, I'd like him to do Michael Bolton's "Go The Distance" and Luther Vandross' "Wait For Love."

And for Phillip Phillips, I'd like him to rock out Aerosmith's "Dream On" and Red Hot Chili Pepper's "The Zephyr Song."

How about your choices?

UPDATE: A day before the Top 3 performance night, Jessica tweeted her throat "isn't feeling at its best." I hope it helps so she could get well.
