Tonight, the American Idol 11 Top 60-ish heads to Las Vegas for another round of singing!  The kids will once again perform in groups. This time,  the selections will be songs of the 50s and early 60s.

List of the Top 70

Producer, Nigel Lythgoe says it will feature the kids singing in tight harmonies. And look! They get to wear really cool costumes too.  And the VOCAL COACH FROM HELL Peggy Blu returns!

At the end of tonight, around 42 contestants will remain. Next week, that group will each perform “One Song/One Instrument”.  After,  the judges will make their picks and the Top 24 will be revealed!

Season 7 Idol, Carly Smithson, who performs in the Cirque Du Soleil Viva Vegas show tweeted,

So excited for Idol tonight cause it was filmed in my Viva Elvis theatre. Super strange to walk into work and see the IDOL logo everywhere. Got to meet all the lovely contestants. It was crazy to be on the other side of the camera watching peoples dreams begin and others end. Also tonight you will get to see footage from my show Viva Elvis by Cirque du Soleil during American Idol. Super fun RT and tune in !

Here is one of my pics from the theatre when American Idol came to visit – “Pick a winner” lol (ed:  lulz)

Also, Nigel tweeted earlier that he may tweet along with the show tonight, so if you’re on twitter check out @dizzyfeet at 8/7c pm
