Note to American Idol: Who the heck is picking the weekly themes this season?!?

With the assignments growing more and more random, last night the final four finalists - Phillip Phillips, Hollie Cavanagh, Joshua Ledet and Jessica Sanchez - were tasked with singing on track by a California native band or artist; and one they wish they had written themselves.

We're afraid to say, but Skylar Laine. Decide for yourself now as you watch the opening quintet of covers and then vote on your favorite...

American Idol Top 7 Recap: Who Was the Best?

The American Idol Top Seven performed songs from the last three years last night, and drew mostly praise from the three judges for their contemporary covers.

Will Hollie Cavanagh Get All the Votes That She Needs?

American Idol's Hollie Cavanagh struggled a bit in her mentoring session, but she came through with flying colors on Dusty Springfield's "All The Man That I Need."

Hollie definitely exudes a kind of Dusty Springfield vibe, both with her looks and with the arrangements she's given, so it certainly works for her and then some.

Hollie Cavanagh on American Idol: The Female Favorite?

Hollie Cavanagh on American Idol: The Female Favorite?

Hollie Cavanagh was born in England, but lives in Texas. Hence her unusual accent. This American Idol semifinalist also looks her age, something that can't always be said for 18-year olds on the show.

So it's safe to say we didn't expect to hear the major pipes that emanated from Cavanagh last night, as she simply stood at the microphone for a cover of Christina Aguilera's "Reflections," and sounded very much like that incredible star herself.
