Stevie Nicks was the American Idol guest mentor last night for the Top 9. There were some good and not so good performances last night. My favorite performance of the night was from Elise Testone the 28 year old school teacher from Charleston, S.C. Elise brought down the house with her rocking version of Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love".

The surprise of the night was from  Heejun Han, the goofy 22-year-old nonprofit organizer from New York, delivered a serious take on Leon Russell's "A Song for You."

My prediction on who gets the boot tonight: 17-year-old student Deandre Brackensick of San Jose, Calif., who performed Eric Benet's "Sometimes I Cry."
