In the event that Lazaro Arbos isn’t eliminated from American Idol on tonight’s results show, he’ll have his work cut out for him next week, as one of the themes just might represent Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick’s most embarrassingly transparent attempt to bus a contestant in series history.

[UPDATE: So yeah, about all that. Nevermind]

Via The Idol Pad:

For the sixth week of the finals, there are two themes – Divas and Birth Year.

Amber Holcomb – 1994
Angela Miller – 1994
Candice Glover – 1989
Janelle Arthur – 1989
Kree Harrison – 1990
Lazaro Arbos – 1990

What do you think each contestant should sing? Are Nigel and Ken playing dirty pool to try and get Lazaro out? Sound off in the comments!

And don’t forget to take our “Who’s Going Home?” poll! Lock in your predictions before tonight’s results show!

I'm ready for the spoilers. I'm predicting Candice to sing Home by Stephanie Mills as one of her songs

Yeah, since obviously no male can be successful at covering a Diva's song... #DavidCook #ABMB

How subtle, Nigel! The week after that the theme will be "Stop Voting for Lazaro week."

@Klope62 I thought the same thing! We're all getting old!

@jhgebel You're absolutely right. But I still think it's a bit of a lopsided theme though, and I question Nigel and Ken's motives for choosing it, is all.

@NickRoman1 - Perhaps they know Lazaro is gone tonight? I'm not holding my breath on that one... It'll still be interesting to see how next week goes. I just hope for some good song choices! I really want (need) to see Kree perform something upbeat soon!

@jhgebel I'm right there with ya, re: Kree. I love her slow, dreamy songs like her Kris Kristofferson pick last night, but I want to see her stretch her legs a little bit, maybe do something a little bit outside of her wheelhouse.
