This week's evictees discuss playing with targets on their backs
With the Save out of the way, who got eliminated, and who qualified for a hometown visit?
It's time for another "American Idol" pinch-hit "recap" by me (Dan will be back next week), and I use the quote marks because while there are many things I would do for my friend Dan Fienberg, I will not sit through an "American Idol" results show. But if you want to know who went home — and discuss who has the best chance to win of the remaining three — click right on through, and I'll step out of the way as quickly as possible...
So as I blindly predicted last night, Amber Holcomb remained in the bottom two again (this time with Kree replacing Candice beside her), and went home when last week's votes and this week's were combined. Based solely on Wednesday night's performances, that seemed the correct result. Based on the season as a whole, though, do you feel Amber should have gone before Kree, Angie and Candice? And if you had to put money on one of the remaining three to become the show's first female winner since Jordin Sparks, who would it be?
Apologies for the intrusion. Dan is returning very soon — promise.

Hey all, as you can tell by the byline above, Dan's not around tonight. Due to unforeseen circumstances, tonight's "American Idol" recapping duties have been handed to me — who hasn't watched an episode of the show since early in the Scotty McCreery season, but who used to write about it regularly on my old blog — and what better time for me to jump into a new season, with a new judging panel, than with the top 4? My apologies; this is Dan's world and I'm just lamely filling in.

Does 'Idol' have a surprise up its sleeve to keep things interesting?
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.
