    • This episode was pre-recorded instead of live like most Performance episodes.

    • For this season instead of having a specific celebrity mentor for each week, the contestants work with music producers from Interscope, and Jimmy Iovine oversees everything, and meets with each contestant each week.

    Trivia (1)

    • Music producer and song writer Berry Gordy Jr. was in the audience tonight.
