It's one week until the finals and American Idol celebrates by extending the show an extra 30 minutes (because that's what Idol needs — more filler!). Tonight, each finalist will perform not once, not twice, but three times. They'll pick their first song, Jimmy will pick their second and the judges will pick their final performance of the evening. After Lady Gaga's awkward yet hilarious appearance on the show last week, this week Beyoncé serves as the mentor during the first round (she is also plugging her new music video, of course). Again, she's not the first artist I would pick for the two country kids and a rocker like Haley, but she's won 16 Grammy awards and she's even married to a one-time music executive so she should have some sort of wisdom to pass on, yes? So did she help give the Idols that extra something to get them to the finale? Let's find out.
So will Lauren's missed key in her second performance cost her a trip to the finals? Or will Haley's botched performance of Alanis and her earlier tumble take her down? Or do you think Scotty didn't branch out enough to stay another week?
