Elimination night on Idol

Four contestants will be eliminated tonight as the semifinal portion of "American Idol" wraps up.

The remaining 16 singers this week sang songs of an '80s theme. For the most part, the men fared significantly better than the women, many of whom were criticized for weak song choices and predictable performances.

Tonight's show starts at 8 p.m. on Fox.
