Idology: How Joshua & Erika Can Learn From Lambert & Durbin! Plus: Phillip Vs. Colton?

There will be a “third horse” in the race for the American Idol Season 11 crown. So predicted prickly mentor Jimmy Iovine during last Thursday’s results show. And while Season 6 standout Melinda Doolittle and I still think it’s a six- or seven-thoroughbred competition, we nevertheless debate on this week’s Idology which contestant is most likely to follow in the footsteps of Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet and get his or her “Idol Moment” during Top 10 week.

Melinda and I also dish out some advice for Joshua Ledet, Erika Van Pelt, and Elise Testone; disagree so strongly about one performance that I actually CTRL+ALT+DEL my brain and ignore her blasphemous words, and discuss why the Hand of God (or Nigel) may be winding up to slap Steven Tyler.

So press play below for this week’s freewheeling Idol discussion, and for all my Idol news, interviews, and recaps, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!
