  • Really?

    Judges hell bent on putting through contestants based on something other than talent. Some of the better singers didn't go through so that the judges, especially Keith Urban, could show he supports gays.
  • Top 13

    There were a few okay performances near the end, but for the most part this episode was pretty poor singing all around. Stop showing Randy Jackson too much as well, it makes it look like the show is about him and not the performers.
  • American Idol going Downhill.

    In my opinion this show stinks. The judges have to much power. It is a joke that 7 girls and 6 boys were picked when the boys this year are truly better. This show is dying because the judges are making poor choices. And why is it ?? that 15 boys and girls are picked then only 10 of each get to sing??? Goodbye American Idol !!!

    • Each Wild Card sang the same song they did in the Individual Performance Round during Hollywood Week. Songs sung tonight were:
      C.J. Harris-"Bring It Home To Me" by Sam Cooke
      Jena Irene-"Unbreakable Me" (Original)
      Spencer Lloyd-"Ordinary Girl" (Original)
      Bria Anai-"It's A Man's Man's Man's World" by James Brown
      Kristen O'Conner-"Unconditionally" by Katy Perry

      *This is the first time ever that Originals have been sung past the Hollywood Rounds.

    • This is the fifth time in the series that there is an odd amount of girls and boys. This is the third time there are more girls with the other two being Seasons 3 and 10. There are 7 Girls and 6 Boys.

    • Similar to last year instead of having just two or three contestants come up at a time and being told who is safe and who is not, like in years past, Ryan just announced one by one who was in the Top 13. The difference is that everyone was in The Lounge, as suppose to all the boys in one room and all the girls in another, and there were no winning songs. Ryan did however go back and forth between a guy and a girl. The 10 people put through based on America's votes were: Malaya Watson, Ben Briley, Emily Piriz, Alex Preston, Jessica Meuse, Dexter Roberts, Caleb Johnson, Majesty Rose, M.K. Nobilette and Sam Woolf. Next the Judges picked five of the remaining ten contestants to sing for three Wild Card spots, and those were: C.J. Harris, Jena Irene, Spencer Lloyd, Bria Anai and Kristen O'Conner, which automatically eliminated Briana Oakley, Emmanuel Zidor, George Lovett, Malcolm Allen and Marrialle Sellars. The Judges then chose the three that made it through which were Jena Irene, Kristen O'Conner and C.J. Harris, automatically eliminating Bria Anai and Spencer Lloyd.
