  Top four performed rock songs last night with the help of Slash, and tonight we find out who will go home. It's just a matter of sitting back and waiting an hour to find out, but really, do we need a whole hour? Apparently, according to the Idol producers, we do. Although, tonight, I may agree. No Doubt and Chris Daughtry will be performing tonight. That is a lineup I can get behind. Breaking again from tradition, the group performance is also featuring the mentor from last night, Slash. The guy has not lost a thing in his playing. In my eyes, Slash revolutionized the guitar solo, and tonight, he showed us how.

In my absence, we have seen a lot of people leave, and we are now down to the top 4. Too bad I haven't been around, because there were some things I would have loved to talk about, but unfortunately, I was not. That's all old news, we are here for tonight's show, where the top 4 do Rock Week.  I'm telling you now, if Adam doesn't nail this week, then I don't know what I will think. To make things a little more interesting, they are also performing duets. Again, I don't know if this is because of me, but last year I also suggested this idea as a way to change things around. This week's mentor is probably one of the best options to teach these kids rock. The mentor this week is Slash. Most kids these days may know him from Velvet Revolver, but the best of us will only see him as the lead guitarist for Guns and Roses. I gotta say off the bad, I don't think Slash has aged in the last 20 years. Now it's time to see how they did.
