The final seven contestants are at risk on tonight's "American Idol" elimination show. Last night, singers had their choice of performing a song from any music genre as long as it was from 2010 or later. The judges gave Joshua Ledet a standing ovation for "Runaway Baby" and they complimented Skylar Laine on her near-perfect pitch. Laine performed Kellie Pickler's "Didn't You know How Much I loved You." Hollie Cavanagh sang "Perfect" and the judges said she wasn't. And, she wasn't the only one. Jennifer Lopez called Phil Phillips' version of "Give A Little More" "underwhelming."
"Survivor: One World"
The latest person voted off "Survivor: One World" this season is Jay Byars. Four votes against him sent him on his way. In his exit interview, Byars said he had an eerie feeling, but definitely didn't see himself going home. He says he had a great time on the show, wouldn't trade it for the world, and tried to play the game as honest as possible. As for what lies ahead, host Jeff Probst said given that nearly half the contestants got votes for elimination, if there wasn't a reason for them to be paranoid before, there certainly is now.

"Damsels In Distress" - Greta Gerwig
Greta Gerwig sings and dances and acts her way through "Damsels in Distress." She does everything but fence, which she also knows how to do. Gerwig took up fencing to replace ballet after her mother made her quit. She says fencing allowed her to be more intense by letting her scream every time she won a point. "Damsels in Distress" opens in more theaters tomorrow.
Lynda Carter In Concert
"American Idol" judges always tell contestants to make the songs their own. That's what Lynda Carter does in her shows. Carter takes a song like Queen's "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" and sings it more sultry and bluesy. Her arrangement of "Desperado" is more ethereal with a country twang. Carter is taking her act on the road, appearing in Los Angeles for three nights starting April 19.
