American Idol 2009 Top 8 – The Week Ahead

After watching Megan Joy eliminated from American Idol 2009 the season’s finalists pool was whittled down to its Top 8. I thoroughly enjoyed last week’s theme of “top downloads” which opened the performers up to more creative options and hopefully they can keep up the pace again this week.

Ahead on Tuesday’s performance show will be song selections from the year of the singer’s birth. Considering the youngest of the bunch, Allison, is just 16 that means she could play a song from Nirvana’s catalog. Now that makes me feel old!

Kellie Pickler will be Wednesday night’s guest star when she returns to the American Idol stage to perform her new single, “Best Days of Your Life.”

Who will rise to the top this week and who will fall away?
