8. DeAndre Brackensick (Last week's ranking: 8)
Last week DeAndre avoided the bottom three with a falsetto-rich rendition of Eric Benet's ''Sometimes I Cry.'' Sometimes DeAndre cries, but mostly he just gapes wide-eyed at his good fortune like an adorable baby lion prince.

7. Hollie Cavanagh (Last week's ranking: 4)
Like DeAndre, Hollie needs a killer performance on '80s night. Unlike DeAndre, our sparkly wood nymph landed in the bottom two after failing to convince the judges of an emotional connection to ''Jesus Take the Wheel.'' As long as she tries something upbeat, I'm thinking Hollie has the chance to stay safe this week. She's so tiny!

6. Skylar Laine (Last week's ranking: 5)
Skylar dropping into the bottom three was a surprise, but the country-rocker has been in desperate need of a standout performance for weeks. Nothing she's done has quite matched the energy and star power of ''Stay With Me.'' It's time to flail around again like a crazy person — and wear those boots she kept mentioning before. Let's go, girl!
4 of 8
5. Colton Dixon (Last week's ranking: 2)
Following a big show-closing moment with ''Piano Man'' on Billy Joel night, Colton was just middle of the pack last week. It didn't help that he had to sing first. I'm expecting a slow ballad from him that allows his voice to snap, crackle and pop just so as he sits plaintively at the piano.

4. Joshua Ledet (Last week's ranking: 7)
He took us to church yet again with Mariah Carey's version of ''Without You,'' set in some sort of creepy doomsday forest. The song made him cry so much that he even wiped his nose during the last line. Emotionally, and vocally, he's ready for the big time. But will the kids vote?

3. Elise Testone (Last week's ranking: 5)
Seriously, will the kids vote? They'd have to be nuts (or...well, kids who have never heard of Led Zeppelin) to discount the 28-year-old voice teacher after last week's sex-oozing rock star performance of ''Whole Lotta Love.'' I still can't believe she did this song. The balls on this woman!
7 of 8
2. Jessica Sanchez (Last week's ranking: 1)
She keeps hovering around the top spot and she's not going anywhere. Last week's Beyoncé cover was pitch perfect and since the judges all noticed she'd been holding back, we can expect some sort of huge diva wail from Jessica tonight.
8 of 8
1. Phillip Phillips (Last week's ranking: 3)
My lifelong devotion to Stevie Nicks could be blinding me here, but as soon as the guest mentor told Phil that he'd have been asked to join Fleetwood Mac in a heartbeat, my estimation of him soared. Jonny Lang's ''Still Rainin''' was a smart, non-pandering choice for him last week, and his momentum shows no signs of slowing.
''And last but not least,'' Stevie added, ''he's gorgeous.''
