    • David Cook performed "Laying Me Low", performed "Bang Bang" and Harry Connick Jr. performed "Every Man Should Know". The beginning part of's performance was in black in white as it was a promotion for the upcoming film "The Great Gatsby" which this song appears on the movie soundtrack.

    • The Group Number was "Crazy in Love" by Beyoncè.

    • This episode's Live Tweet "question" was "Harry Connick Jr was a good Mentor".

    • This episode's Twitter hashtags were: #idolgirlpower, #idolTBT, #TheGreatGatsby, #AngieComesHome, #CandiceComesHome and #KreeComesHome.

    • Voted Off: Amber Holcomb

    • The results were in random order tonight, so even though Kree and Amber were left standing, it does not mean Kree was actually in the Bottom 2, however the way Ryan referred to Kree and Amber as the last two made it seem like she actually might be.

  • Notes

    • This is the first time ever that there was a non-elimination week which did not result in either a double elimination the next week, or was due to a disqualification that had two people leaving the week before (ie Seasons 2 and 11).

    • This week's Idol Update was on Constantine Maroulis who neither performed nor was there. This is the first time this has happened this season.
