For weeks now, "American Idol" fans have been wondering how the competition plans to handle what appears to be an extra week of programming beyond what could be justified by an elimination-per-episode pace.
Will we get a two-week finale?
Will we have a Non-Elimination Episode?
Will we get a Save that isn't followed by a Non-Elimination Episode?
The latter possibility would *seem* to be out of the question unless "Idol" is changing the Save rules without warning.
So will Angie Miller, Candice Glover, Kree Harrison or Amber Holcomb actually be going home on Thursday? Or are we going to be treated to performances from Lee Dewyze and Stefano Langone, followed by some trickeration.
Click through and follow the excitement.
We're down to four on "American Idol" - Amber Holcomb, Angie Miller, Candice Glover and Kree Harrison.
I don't have a clue what that means in terms of the upcoming elimination schedule. It confuses me. It's the sort of thing that would keep me up nights, were insomnia not already doing the job.
Wednesday (April 24) night's show will apparently feature a pair of themes -- One Hit Wonders and Personal Choice -- as well as a pair of duets.
Click through and follow along as the magic happens.
And as always, feel free to e-mail us questions for the podcast.
Having dispatched with five underwhelming men, it's time for America to get down to the more difficult business of picking a winner from this extremely solid all-female Top 5. I could look at all of the remaining singers and make an argument for how they might score the "Idol" crown, but I could also easily list weaknesses for all five.
It's anybody's game. Let's get down to recapping!
