  • Although introduced last year as the new way of doing results, the video recap/Jimmy's Comments instead of Ryan re-reading the opinions of the judges, is how the results are done in every episode this season (minus the finale).

  • This year's elimination song is "Please Remember Me" by Scotty McCreery.

  • Lauren Alaina performed "Georgia Peaches" and Mary J. Blige performed "Why".

Trivia (6)

  • After being eliminated, Jeremy did not sing a song.

  • For the first time ever, the Judges decided who went home. First the bottom three guys and girls were revealed and then the bottom guy and bottom girl were revealed and the judges chose who they would like to save. The bottom girl and guy were NOT necessarily the bottom two, as it may have been two girls or two guys that had the least amount, but this was the way it was set up.

  • Ryan did not mention the number of votes.

  • Voted Off: Jeremy Rosado

  • Bottom 3 Girls:
    3. Erika Van Pelt
    2. Shannon Magrane

  • Bottom 3 Guys:
