  • Notes

    • There was a special video shown of why the Boys all got eliminated back-to-back, revealing that the girls plotted it and the mastermind was no other than Season 6 Winner Jordin Sparks, who was the last female Winner. In this video Candice said it was "easy" to do since none of the guys played guitar. This was eluding to the WGWG (White Guys With Guitar) controversy which had five years in a row of a white male who performed mostly with their guitar on stage, winding up winning, from Season 7 (David Cook) until Season 11 (Phillip Phillips).
