Down to just the Top 7 contestants, American Idol 2014 returns this week for back to back nights of shows featuring performances on Wednesday where the finalists will ‘do unto others’ and the results show this Thursday.

This week’s American Idol theme will be a first for the series when the finalists pick songs for the other finalists! They’ll be narrowing down options to just a few songs for the artist to pick from before heading to the live stage on Wednesday night. Of course it’d be funny to see some silly songs picked, but I doubt there will be any real sabotage attempts here this week.

Then on Thursday night we’ll be back at the new time and shorter show duration when the American Idol results show kicks off at 9PM ET with our 30-minute live blog of the whole show. There’s no safety net again this week after the Save was used on Sam the other week. The singer with the lowest votes will be eliminated no matter how much JLo cries.

We’re excited to see how this week’s performances turn out with a fun, new theme that’s sure to give us some interesting song picks come Wednesday night!
