Seven lucky finalists still remain on American Idol, and they will be facing a doozie of a theme if you ask us. Wednesday will be a Classic Rock, No Ballads-themed performance show (8 p.m.-9 p.m. CT on FOX). If you’re familiar with these ballad-loving singers, you know this is going to be a tough one. Here is who you can expect to see perform:

Lazaro Arbos 

Amber Holcomb 

Janelle Arthur 

Burnell Taylor 

Angie Miller 

Candice Glover 

Kree Harrison


We imagine “Kreedom” will ring, as Nicki Minaj might say, as she’s yet to meet a genre she can’t conquer. And Candice showed us she can rock it a few weeks ago with her stellar rendition of “Come Together”. The others, however, we think might struggle. And we think Lazaro’s seemingly never-ending 15 minutes might finally be up.


As for Thursday’s results show, American Idol’s golden girl, Carrie Underwood, will return to her roots to sing her new single, “See You Again”. Season nine’s Casey James is also on tap, and is set to perform “The Good Life”.


 These shows are sure to be filled with drama, and we wonder if the judges will finally use their save. What are you most looking forward to this week?
