The week after the twist that didn't work, American Idol's Top 4 return to the stage with a lot on the line.

Specifically, this week's three surviving contestants can look forward to triumphant trips home this weekend.

The means a reunion with family, a parade and a hometown concert.

But before we get to all of that, the Idols will be asked to sing songs about makeups and breakups, at least two apiece again tonight in a theme that seems most ill-suited for Caleb Johnson, the rocker among the bunch.

Also remaining in the competition, of course, are Alex Preston, Jena Irene and Jess Meuse.

As always, I'll be providing song by song grades throughout the show and posting a recap and photo gallery once it ends.
