Andrew Garcia, Katie Stevens, Michael Lynche, Siobhan Magnus, Aaron Kelly at risk on 'American Idol'

Andrew Garcia, Katie Stevens, Michael Lynche, Siobhan Magnus and Aaron Kelly are all candidates to be among the two contestants eliminated tonight on 'American Idol,' if you believe our insightful panel of Newsday experts.

With usual scapegoat Tim Urban having a strong night Tuesday, it's going to be interesting to see if there are indeed some surprises among the lowest-vote-getters. At this stage, nobody should really count themselves safe -- even "frontrunners" Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze have been "solid," not spectacular, as of late.

In our Newsday contest for no prize, Jonathan McCarthy has knocked Peggy Lundquist out of first place for the first time since the finals started.

Here are all our picks, below. (Scoring system: You get one point for each contestant correctly predicted to be in the bottom three, with an extra point if you pick who went home.)
