'American Idol' Recap: Top 9 Perform 80s Songs, Two Eliminated
American Idol 2015 did a time warp. On last night's Idol, the top 9 performers sang 80s songs. Idol also got 80s icons to help with the show. Boy George mentored and Salt-N-Pepa performed. The departure of two contestants stopped the party.

Last week the American Idol judges decided to save Qaasim Middleton. This meant two would have to go home this week to compensate for the save. These weren't shocking eliminations but definitely sad ones: two contestants who were just starting to find their place left.

Last night, American Idol 2015 went to the movies. Yes, the theme of this week's American Idol was songs from the movies. Surprisingly, this crop of singers didn't pick the usual songs we've heard done a million times during movie week. We got to hear a lot of unique choices. Some of those choices brought the performers to new heights, and others dragged them down.

The top eleven contestants were also joined by rock legend Nile Rodgers, who gave them his expert advice. Also last night the top eleven contestants were supposed to become the top ten. However, did the judges already use their ...
