We’ve got some American Idol 2012 spoilers for you regarding tonight’s Top 7 performance of songs from “this decade.”
Nigel Lythgoe has been teasing out details on what we can expect as the remaining seven finalists make their selections from this past two and a half years of songs. Read on to find out what we can expect tonight on Idol.

So we should be getting “You & I” by Lady Gaga which might be performed by Elise Testone. It’s possible that Nigel was only confirming the song selection rather than the finalist performing it.
Next up we’ve got details on one of tonight’s duets, yep those are back, and two of the other solo performances. Lythgoe reveals that a Gotye song will be performed as a duet. Considering their big single right now is “Somebody That I Used to Know” (watch it below) I’d say it’s safe to expect that selection. Along with Gotye’s “Somebody” we’ll have two covers of the original American Idol, Kelly Clarkson:
I love the Gotye song. It makes a great duet on #AmericanIdol this week. How wonderful and ironic that we’re doing 2 Kelly Clarkson tracks!

I’m not sure what’s “ironic” about doing Kelly Clarkson songs, much less two of them, but that’s what he thinks about it. Clarkson has released one album in “this decade” and that was “Stronger” so it’s another safe bet that we can look there for tonight’s covers. Her two big singles from that album are “Stronger” and “Mr. Know It All.”
That gives us three of the seven songs set to be performed tonight on American Idol 2012. Who do you think will be attached to perform each of these three?
