Will Crystal Bowersox regain her status as the season nine "American Idol" front-runner?
That's one of the major questions going into tonight's one-hour episode of "American Idol," which airs 8 p.m. on Fox. Jamie Foxx will mentor. Insert your own "Blame It on the Alcohol" joke here.
The final four contestants will sing movie songs. Each contestant will reportedly perform one duet with another finalist.
Bowersox, Lee DeWyze, Michael Lynche and Casey James remain in the competition.
Never miss a local story.
Many viewers have pegged DeWyze as the current front-runner. He fits one of the most tried-and-true "Idol" templates: the shy guitar-playing guy who smiles and progressively improves enough to win the competition. That said, he still needs a lot of work when it comes to stage presence.
Bowersox isn't far behind. Hands down, this dreadlocked mom is the season's most consistent singer. But she's suffered two consecutive weeks of forgettable performances. Her growing willingness to talk back to the judges has gotten a little annoying, too.
Lynche and James? They have an uphill battle. Many fans regard Lynche as arrogant, and James hasn't been consistent enough to ditch the bar singer label.
