    • It is revealed in this episode that Tim Urban originally was not selected to be a part of the Top 24. It was originally Chris Golightly. However, was disqualified on February 17, 2010, over an old contract. The contract had expired by the time the top 24 began to tape, but they disqualified him because he was under contract at the time of the tryouts, in violation of Idol rules. Since this occurred before the Final Judgement episode aired, they just edited it and had Tim Urban shown as a Top 24 contestant.
