We’re inching closer and closer to crowning the winner of American Idol 2013. This week, the Top 9 will soon be cut down to the Top 8, but not before we get another round of killer performances!

 

So will there be a new episode of American Idol tonight? You bet there will be!

 

Tonight, tune in at 8 p.m. ET as the Season 12 Top 9  contestants perform tunes from the songbook of legendary Beatles members John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

 

We have a good idea of who will cruise safely on to the Top 8 (we’re looking at you, Angie Miller and Burnell Taylor), but there are a few singers that’ll have to step up their game if they want to stick around for another week!

 

We love Paul Jolley’s energy and enthusiasm, but he’ll have to prove to the judges that he’s capable of being more than just a handsome face. His performance of Lonestar’s “Amazed” last week was a dramatic improvement over his previous performances, so let’s hope he can capitalize on that momentum.

 

Similarly, Janelle Arthur is quite possibly the most adorable and “aw shucks” contestant this year, but there’s only room for one country queen in this competition. So far, we’ve been feeling Kree Harrison’s performances more, but we’re not willing to discount Janelle just yet.

 

Who do you think will be going home after tonight’s performances?
