      Casey Abrams, James Durbin & Scotty McCreery: "Viva la Vida" by Coldplay

    • The Ford Music Video was "World" by Five For Fighting. The group tries to create a serene outback. Casey and Lauren use ropes to pull a cloud over. Stefano and Jacob literally move mountains. James, Haley and Scotty roll out a giant carpet of grass. The group uses water cans to make a river and then they take canoes out and some go out on the river while the others enjoy the scenery.
