Sin City played host to the next round of American Idol, where music of the '50s and '60s ruled supreme.

Viva Las Vegas -- Make that, viva American Idol!

The Idol hopefuls hit the Vegas stage this week, taking on the killer tunes of the '50s and '60s.

David Leathers Jr., Jeremy Rosado, Ariel Sprague and Gabi Carrubba got the judges chirping with "Rockin' Robin," while Adam Brock, Erika Van Pelt, Angie Zeiderman and Shelby Tweten set the stage on fire with "Great Balls of Fire."

The judges gave a standing ovation to Reed Grimm, Haley Johnson, Eben Franckewitz and Elise Testone thanks to their funky beat box surprise.

See you later, alligator

Despite pulling out killer performances, we said goodbye to Gabi Carrubba, Angie Zeiderman, Johnny Keyser, Britnee Kellogg, Schyler Dixon and a number of other hopefuls.
