With three songs each on the American Idol stage they gave us plenty to consider when trying to decide who will win American Idol 2014 this season. Would it be the surprisingly smart picks coming from the show’s creator, too-soon rehashes of previous performances, or their winner’s singles? I’ve made my selections from the night, but also want to know yours!

Jena Irene – “We Are One”:

I imagine a lot of people will disagree on this one for her, but it’s the song we’ll hear first from Jena Irene if she is crowned the winner tonight. It’s a great, fresh sounding single and definitely the better of the two put out there this season. In a reminder of what kind of artist she’d be, Jena Irene delivered with “We Are One” so I’m giving that the “best of” for her finale performance night.

Caleb Johnson – “Dream On”:

Caleb came out with his strongest performance first last night and while the other two were great, this was the best for me. “Dream On” is no easy song but Caleb made it look that way with it falling right in the center of what we’ve come to expect from him. Great performance of a great song made this easily Caleb’s “best of” for last night’s show.
