        Colton Dixon-"Love the Way You Lie" by Eminem Ft. Rihanna (2010) 
        Phillip Phillips & Elise Testone-"Somebody That I Use to Know" by Gotye Ft. Kimbra (2011)

        Elise Testone-"You and I" by Lady Gaga (2011)


        *Despite the theme being songs from 2010-2012, Skylar's song was initially released in 2008 on Kellie Pickler's album, and the single released in 2009, both before the cut off, however it is not explained why she could do so, but it is not the first time there has been a date switch.

      • For the first time ever during the performance show, there are both Duets AND a Trio. Previously it was either all Duets or all Trios.
