The episode starts off with Homer Simpson taking over Ryan's role and trying to introduce the show. This is the second time this season that the Simpsons have appeared on AI.
In Blake's "Going Home" video, you can see former Idol auditioner Jonathan Jayne in the crowd. He was one of the more popular auditioners in Season 6, known as the best friend of Kenneth (the one Simon said looked like a monkey).
The final American Idol Challenge was: "Which of these Season 5 finalists was not in the Top 2?" The options were Elliott, Katharine and Taylor.
