After last week’s result show we are down to the Top 9 finalists on American Idol this week.
On last week’s episode Erika Van Pelt sang her heart out for survival, but she was eliminated. If you missed the episode you can read our full recap of the result show here and our full recap of the performance show here.
The contestants are expected to be singing songs from their idols and some of the artists they are taking on are: Beyonce; Mariah; Miranda; Lifehouse; Daughtry and Led Zeppelin.
The mentor this week will be Fleetwood Mac singer/songwriter and solo artist Stevie Nicks – the Official American Idol twitter account tweeted: “Stevie Nicks is this week’s mentor! As the lead singer of Fleetwood Mac, she is a pioneer of rock & roll music.” Colton Dixon also tweeted about his meeting with Nicks, tweeting, “Morning everyone! Stevie nicks was our mentor yesterday and she was the sweeties thing! Got a great song coming your way this week:-)”
