'American Idol' Top 5: Has Amber Holcomb done enough to stay?

Here we go -- it's on like Donkey Kong on "American Idol" now. Janelle Arthur has lagged behind the other women some weeks, so we'd love to see her make smart song choices and make this a real dogfight for who moves on. For theme, Round 1 is Year of Birth and Round 2 is Divas. Year of Birth has ceased to be that much fun anymore, now that everybody is like 12 years old. Kidding, kidding -- but not really.1. Candice Glover, 1989, "Straight Up"She's doing the slow-jam, R&B-bordering-on-reggae version of Paula Abdul's big hit. It's ... interesting. We don't hate it and her voice is smooth as butter, as per usual, but for that year, we wouldn't have minded Candice having a nice ballad moment on "If You Don't Know Me by Now." Yeah, we wish she had done that Simply Red number. That was a great vocal, we just weren't in love...
