American Idol: Top 8 perform

The eight remaining singers will reportedly perform inspirational songs on tonight's episode of "American Idol."

It's the first show in what could be the most "Idol"-heavy week of the season. Wednesday, celebrities will appear on the reality TV show's philanthropy extravaganza, "Idol Gives Back." Thursday, it's back to business with elimination night.

Tonight's show starts at 8 p.m. on Fox. The "Idol" blog at www.ledger-enquirer.com will be updated "live," so be sure to check in often for candid comments from reporter Sonya Sorich.
