The Top 3 contestants on “American Idol” — Alejandro Aranda, Laine Hardy and Madison VanDenburg— will sing three songs apiece on the finale on Sunday, May 19. The finalists will kick off the evening with a tune dedicated to their respective hometowns. During those numbers expect to see plenty of clips of their recent returns to their childhood homes. Each will then take to the stage to perform a solo. And they will duet with a guest musical artist.
