As featured at Fox on Wednesday night, the remaining American Idol 2012 finalists compete with each other via 80s songs and were also divided into four duets, from the trio groups last Wednesday.

As reported last week, Heejun Han was eliminated from the show despite being among the five finalists who received a standing ovation from the three judges, who did not save him after having the least number of votes.

Meanwhile, for the duets this week, Colton and Skylar performed the Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton duet ‘Islands in the Stream’, and Hollie and DeAndre did a duet of The Pointer Sisters‘ ‘I’m So Excited’.
