This is the week “American Idol” viewers are going to find out which of the six remaining finalists are truly the favorites, and which are living on borrowed time.
That’s because each of the finalists got more praise than criticism from the judges, which was kind of a miracle considering the mentor was Shania Twain and each finalist sang from her catalog. If you haven’t spent the whole season thinking, “Man, I wish I could see what Lee Dewyze and Michael Lynche could do with a Shania Twain cover,” well, you wouldn’t be alone.
It’s hard to imagine that the four guys remaining were enthusiastic about picking their songs, and not surprisingly none chose to go with “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” Although man, I wish they had! But fortunately for them, the judges were more than kind.
