'Idol' Top 5 will sing then and now tunes

"American Idol" is doubling it up tonight.

The remaining five contestants will be singing two songs on Wednesday, one from the 1960s and a current tune.

That means they each have double the chance to impress the viewers – and they are going to need it. We are coming down to the wire and unlike past seasons, predicting a winner isn't a given.Who do you think will be the last two standing in the finale?

One thing we do know about the finale is that judge Steven Tyler will be performing. Tyler – who will reportedly debut the video for his first solo single "It Feels So Good" on "Idol's" May 12 episode – told Billboard his group will make an appearance.

"When I came on board, of course they were talking about, 'Are you going to sing with the contestants?' I said I'll do a song, sure, but it was always my intention, always, to get Aersomith on the show," he said.

    just released – “Steven Tyler’s Secret Past” is an absolute must read. This just released true to life non-fiction thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat taking you into the dark world of Steven Tyler, the Mafia bosses who managed his career, and the very strange tactics used to deploy Aerosmith to the top of the world’s rock and roll scene. It’s a story of struggle and hardship, and overcoming great odds against enemies who’d stop at nothing to get their way. A few simple mistakes at the beginning of his career and Steven was in over his head caught between the CIA and his own Sicilian roots.,,,,,,,

    I hope it is a fair final this year. Allready the Judges have picked the winner to be James, bu using subliminal messages and always flashing his pictures and bringing up his name every chance they get. They have bee rude to Scotty and wanting the American puble thinking that Scotty was in the bottom three last week. Be fair Judges and American Idol! Quit being so biased.

    James Durbin is the winner in my opinion. And Pia should also be up there. All these kids will have careers singing if they so choose. The most successful from this season will be James, Casey, Jacob, & Scotty.

    My choice for the top 2 would be Lauren and Scotty. I soooo hope Lauren wins, though. I love them both.
