Now that classic rock week is in the rearview mirror, season 12 of American Idol chugs along with a new theme: “Song I Wish I Had Written.”

The top six, which include five girls -- Janelle Arthur, Candice Glover, Kree Harrison, Amber Holcomb and Angie Miller -- will each perform two songs on the April 10 show.

And on Thursday’s results show, two Idol winners return: Kelly Clarkson, the viewer favorite that started it all, and season 10’s Scotty McCreery. The former will perform her new single, “People Like Us.” McCreery’s song has yet to be announced.

Another unknown: whether this year's season’s sole male hopeful will advance or if Lazaro Arbos has reached the end of his Idol road.
