  • Trivia

    • This episode's Twitter hashtags were: #hollywoodweek, #idolsolonight, #idolgirls, #goodbyekezban, #idolsingoff, #idoltop20girls and #idoltop20guys.

    • There was still no mention as to how many girls there were at the start of the Individual Performance, but 24 girls remained after. By the end of Hollywood Week, 40 contestants (20 girls and 20 boys) remained.

    • Ryan mentioned that the girls could sing originals during this round. It was not mentioned if the guys were allowed to though, so it might have been a special rule for the girls.

  • Notes

    • Differences from last year: Although not officially called it, the last part of this episode was kind of like the Final Judgement, however, instead of each contestant going one by one to meet the judges, they had all the girls go on stage and cut three. Then they had two (whom they were undecided about) do a "Sing Off" (like in Season 8) and one of them was eliminated and the other safe. The same happened with the boys, only all the cuts (a total of 8) were made after the Sing Off between the two contestants.
