    • Usually the Duets are mixed in with the regular performances, but in this episode they were done more like an intermission having both, plus a group number sung in between rounds one and two.

    • Each contestant sang two songs, one from or about California and a song they wish they'd written. They also sang Duets and a Group Number. The songs sung tonight were:
      Phillip Phillips-"Have You Ever Seen The Rain?" by Creedence Clearwater Revival
      Hollie Cavanagh-"Faithfully" by Journey
      Joshua Ledet-"You Raise Me Up" by Josh Groban
      Jessica Sanchez-"Steal Away" by Jimmy Hughes 
      Phillip Phillips and Joshua Ledet-"This Love" by Maroon 5
      Hollie Cavanagh and Jessica Sanchez-"Eternal Flame" by The Bangles
