American Idol 2009 Top 5 – The Week Ahead

Last week’s American Idol double elimination was surprisingly a little lackluster considering there wasn’t much of a surprise to see Lil and Anoop sent shuffling off-stage. Now that we’re down to just the American Idol 2009 Top 5 I think the anticipation is starting to build though many fans are supporting a domination by Adam Lambert.

The Idol theme this week is going to be Rat Pack, as in the Sixties group of singers which included Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Joey Bishop, and Peter Lawford. Now that’s an interesting topic for song selections and could really provide for some hit or miss performances. I’m hoping for more hits than the latter, but we’ll know once Tuesday night’s performance show is over.

On Wednesday night’s Idol results show we’ll learn who is eliminated and who remains to make up the season’s Top 4. Former Idol winner Taylor Hicks will be returning to perform his single “Seven Mile Breakdown.” I’m not much of a Hicks’ fan, but maybe he’ll offer up more than I’m expecting.

It’s time for more predictions for who is going to have a great week and who will be sent packing. Let’s hear your thoughts and comments now!
