On tonight's 400th episode, the season 11 American Idol Top 13 finalists (7 guys, 6 girls) perform live tonight. The guys tackle Stevie Wonder songs (for apparently the 400th time on Idol) and the girls face Whitney Houston material just weeks after her death catapulted three of her old albums into Billboard's Top 10.
Early favorites include Jessica Sanchez, Phillip Phillips and Elise Testone. I kind of like Skylar Laine, the sole country contestant for her energy and flair. Will have to catch up on the DVR as I won't be live with Idol tonight. Share your thoughts here or follow me on http://twitter.com/HowardCohen
