Geez, I love Elliott's voice, but his choice of songs are atrocious. And here's betting McPhee will screw up tonight.

Elliott needed a whole lot more than picking two obscure Elvis songs to stay another week.

This is only the second season I've watched AI, but I seem to recall that they had dropped the themes by this point last year and contestants just sang what they wanted. Am I misremembering? Do they carry themes all the way through?

Should be a fun show. "If I Can Dream" is one of Elvis' most powerful songs and if Elliot performs it well, especially if it's the last song of the night, I think he has a good shot to beat out McPhee.

yep they have themes up until the final 2 or 3. Last year's final four theme was Country Music & Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff songs. Final three was Clive Davis's Choice, Contestant's Choice, Judge's Choice. So that's not really a theme.

Think this is going to be a hard week for Elliot. He doesnt have the power in his voice you need for Elvis. Chris, Taylor and Katherine can all belt it out.

I'm thinking its a Chris vs. Taylor final.

I was really hoping that Taylor would get to sing "Suspicious Minds" because it's a perfect song for his psycho body gyrations. He'll have a tough enough time trying to top Eric Cartman's soulful rendition of "In the Ghetto". I wonder if Chris will be sporting his tough guy, 8th grade wallet chain. We'll find out in just a few hours.

Elliott did the smartest play he could do - sing two obscure songs so as to stand out as himself and not an Elvis clone. It's really his only hope of staying on. Frankly, I don't think he has the fan base to stay in the competition any longer.

I have a feeling that Taylor will spaz out during his rendition of Jailhouse Rock. Hopefully, all of elliot's votes will go to Katherine or Chris once he is eliminated tomorrow.

They'll go to Katherine, since she and Elliott tend to both fill the "soft ballad" bill.
