10. Erika Van Pelt (Last week's ranking: 9)
Our rocker chick still needs the chance to rock for real. Not sure it's gonna happen this week. (Can we get a Kelly Clarkson theme night up in here or what?)

9. Heejun Han (Last week's ranking: 7)
Frankly I'm surprised he didn't land in the bottom three after last week's breathless cover of Richard Marx. But he's funny, and the no-glass glasses thing is... something.

8. Elise Testone (Last week's ranking: 11)
She might have my favorite voice of the season, but the rasp-master is not getting the votes. I'd love to hear a slow and husky Billy Joel ballad from her.

7. DeAndre Brackensick (Last week's ranking: 6)
He needs to stand up for himself (or have any conviction at all) during the song-choice process, but Billy Joel week could really work in this young lion's favor.

6. Colton Dixon (Last week's ranking: 5)
He should forgo ''Piano Man'' and go for something romantic that ladies like. And they love Colton!

5. Skylar Laine (Last week's ranking: 4)
Does she ever miss a note? Skylar's confidence and stage presence suggest she'd be a consistent choice for even non-country-fan voters.

4. Joshua Ledet (Last week's ranking: 8)
He had a HUGE moment last week with ''When a Man Loves a Woman,'' and I think he could spin a Billy Joel song into something even better. But the judges don't like to lavish all their praise onto the same wriggling crawfish twice in a row...

3. Jessica Sanchez (Last week's ranking: 1)
She had a rough time turning the beat around on a Gloria Estefan cover, but that just means she'll be even more poised for a ''comeback'' this week.

2. Hollie Cavanagh (Last week's ranking: 2)
I'm a little concerned for her if she attempts an uptempo Billy Joel tune with that staggering, surprisingly big voice of hers, but the girl hasn't swung and missed yet. Just lose the aging-diva gown!

1. Phillip Phillips (Last week's ranking: 3)
Dave Matthews Jr. went first last week, so I think he'll get better placement this time around. And he won't be doubling over in pain from a kidney surgery. No matter his song choice, it's a win-win.
