'American Idol': Name your Top 8 Power List!

Posted on

Welcome back to another round of EW.com’s American Idol Power List — in which I attempt to predict how America will vote for the finalists of Tiny Teens and you all disagree with me and post your own ranking, and it’s okay because none of us plebes are fortune-tellers and the only being who knows exactly what will happen is celestial mouthpiece Ryan Seacrest.

Tonight the Top 8 take on songs from the ’80s! What could be more relevant than that? No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani and bassist Tony Kanal will be guest mentors. Read through my photo gallery ranking of the Top 8, then leave your own list in the comments….
