American Idol 2011 Top 13 Week Preview

This week on American Idol 2011, the Top 13 will take to the stage, but they won’t be the only ones. After Wednesday night’s show with song choices from the contestants’ favorite performers, we’ll get some big visits on the results show.

Adam Lambert will be returning to the Idol spotlight on Thursday night to perform an acoustic version of “Aftermath”, so that’ll be a little different than his last laser-show visit. Also that night we’ll get performances from Diddy-Dirty Money with Skylar Grey and the return of David Cook.

Cook will introduce this season’s new loser going-home song, a remake of Simple Minds’ “Don’t You (Forget About Me).” You can hear the full version of Cook’s cover below, right after you finish burying your beloved 80’s memories in the backyard.

What do you think of the American Idol 2011 goodbye song? Does David Cook do justice to the Breakfast Club’s own goodbye song?
