American Idol 2012 Recap: Season 11 ‘Top 7 Performance Episode’ 4/11/12

Tonight is an all new episode of Fox’s hit show American Idol and we will get to see the top seven competitors take on modern songs from this decade. Last week, we saw the departure of DeAndre Brackensick, after being put in the bottom two alongside Elise Testone. After performing for the judges in a last ditch effort to get them to use their only save for the season, it was determined that DeAndre would be sent on his way. Jennifer Lopez joked that she can’t save him with just one vote. In case you’ve missed the show, you can read our full episode recap here.

Nigel Lythgoe has already spoiled some of the song choices tonight on his official Twitter page. He tweeted the news that a Gotye song would be a song choice for a duet this week. In addition, he commented that they would be doing two tracks from former American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson.

Tonight’s mentor is Akon, so it’s possible that we’ll be hearing one of his tracks. I hope that the two Kelly Clarkson songs are Since U Been Gone and Because Of You.

What modern tracks would you like to see the remaining Idol hopefuls take on tonight? Also, here’s a list of who’s left in the competition:

Joshua Ledet
Phillip Phillips
Elise Testone
Hollie Cavanagh
Jessica Sanchez
Colton Dixon
Skylar Laine
