I hope you’ve got your Victory garden planted and ready because tonight on American Idol 2011 we’ll be visiting the post World War II songs of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. Gee golly, Wally! Surely it can’t be all that bad, right? Well of course it could, but let’s hope it’s not.

No word yet on if the remaining Top 4 singers: Haley, James, Lauren, and Scotty; will be performing two songs or just one but since we’ve got another 90 minutes of showtime I’m guessing they’re doing something to fill all that time. Didn’t past seasons drop to 60 minutes once we got this far in the competition?

Side note: We’re just a few people away from hitting 20,000 friends on our Idol Net Facebook page! Who wants to help push us over that edge?? Join us and see what other fans are saying right now. Update – Yah! You all did it. Thanks!

In rumor news, E! is reporting that James Durbin will perform a “mind blowing” rendition of “Don’t Stop Believin’” to pump the crowd. Note that song was not written by Leiber and Stoller. Since FOX has locked down all song selections this season it’s interesting that they’re suddenly “leaking” that information. Could it be to entice an audience that isn’t used to cranking up their Victrola to listen to their music? Seems Idol should have done a better job of letting everyone know the Top 4 would also be performing music not chiseled on tablets. Fingers crossed.

Which performer are you most excited to hear on American Idol tonight?
