Even in the promo pic the producers show their hand. The orange totally matches Adam's skin tone!

It's finally here! The showdown between Kris "The King of Arkansas" Allen, Danny "Karoke" Gokey and Adam "Tim Curry from 'Rocky Horror Picture Show'" Lambert. They're doing one song selected by the judges and one of their choosing. We know that Kris will sing "Apologize," which sounds like something he could sing, while the other two will do some combination of these. During his homecoming appearances, which should appear at least in part tonight (right?), Kris said repeatedly that his song pick would be "surprising," which I took to mean "unexpected." Entertainment Weekly suggests, brilliantly, an acoustic cover of "Straight Up," which this guy demonstrates ably.

But, really, at this point, does anyone care about the music? There's a culture war raging, y'all. And the divide between the contestants is easily distilled. It's red state vs. blue state (Lambert is from California, Gokey from Wisconsin). Worship leaders vs. leather pants. Surely gay vs. married vs. widowed.

If only the "Idol" folks released numbers. Then, Nate Silver would be all over this.

Starts at 7 p.m.
