'Idol' psychics: Will Tim Urban be a soul survivor?

Tuesday's "American Idol" will have a little bit of soul as the Top 10 get into an R&B vibe with help from Usher. But who'll end up as a lost soul come Wednesday night?

GOING HOME Tim Urban

Tim did a crazy little thing last week and sang Queen, and no one called it love. It did prove he has no rhythm, so this week should leave him singing the blues.

SECOND LOWEST Andrew Garcia

He loves female artists, so don't be surprised if he tackles Aretha Franklin this week. But given the judges' recent criticisms, he may not win their R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

THIRD LOWEST Didi Benami

Last week she did "You're No Good," and she wasn't bad. But to step it up this week, she should channel Anita Baker for "Sweet Love" from the judges.

GOING HOME Tim Urban

The most soul we've seen so far from Urban was the bottom of his shoes during last week's crazy little thing called stunt. Let's hope this week he continues his slide all the way home.

SECOND LOWEST Katie Stevens

You need life experience to understand soul, but this squeaky-clean Katie Holmes look-alike hasn't developed any depth yet. Big girls don't cry, but this one might if she's in the Bottom 3 again.

THIRD LOWEST Lee Dewyze

Great tone and a Sad Sack expression do not a soul singer make. Where is the intensity and emotion? Lee, we wrote you a letter: Begin to feel those songs or you'll be singing "I'm a-goin' home" for real.
