Top 8 to Perform 'Motor-City' Themed Songs on AMERICAN IDOL

Last week saw the departure of Palmersville, TN native Paul Jolley as he had received the lowest number of votes after his Beatles Week performance of "Eleanor Rigby." On a night that featured appearances from Season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez, Ne-Yo and Season 10 finalist Casey Abrams, Paul Jolley was sent home after the judges opted not to use their "save" to keep him in the competition.

This week, the remaining eight contestants will return as American Idol pays tribute to "The Music of The Motor City." On Wednesday March 27, the Top 8 contestants will perform songs centered on the city of Detroit.

On the next live results show on Thursday March 28th; American Idol will celebrate its 450th episode! To celebrate, former IDOL finalist Colton Dixon will perform live on the IDOL stage.

Be sure to tune in to American Idol WED and THU at 8/7c on FOX.
