Welcome back to another round of’s American Idol Power List — in which I attempt to predict how America will vote for the finalists 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.

Remember: I’m just predicting how America will vote and — to some extent — how the contestants might do this week. This is not a ranking of my faves — if it were, Elise Testone and Erika Van Pelt would be a lot higher!

Tonight the Top 12 take on the dreaded/revered “Songs From The Year You Were Born” challenge. Read through my photo gallery ranking of The Top 12, then leave your own list in the comments….
