We’re heading toward a new round of performances after last week’s reprise of audition songs so get ready for some 80’s fun in the new theme. But be careful because Caleb is threatening to wear spandex to get in the spirit of the theme in this week’s preview clip below.

Speaking of going back in time, we’re expecting a surprise mentor from a past season… David Cook! This will be great to see him again helping out the new finalists which will hopefully segue to a fun guest performance on Thursday night.

We’ll be watching for new American Idol spoilers today to find out what the singers will be performing tonight, but in the meantime check out our song picks for the Top 8.
