A couple of times this season, you've had to wonder if the contestants and the American Idol band were on the same page.

Well, this week, they'd better be.

The Top 9 Idol theme will be: "I'm with the Band," meaning each of the Idol hopefuls will act as the lead singer for Rickey Minor and his band.

The good news: the theme apparently isn't very restrictive, allowing the Idols to perform "their favorite songs."

And this week's Idol rankings include a new singer in the top spot: Jena Irene Asciutto, following a string of solid performances.
