The Ford Music Video was "Fireflies" by Owl City. The contestants used some sort of magic marker that left neon lights as the swooshed to make pictures of things.
There was no Group Number tonight. Instead there were two duets. The songs sung tonight were: James Durbin & Scotty McCreery: "Start a Band" by Brad Paisley & Keith Urban
Lauren Alaina & Haley Reinhart: "Gunpowder & Lead" by Miranda Lambert
After being eliminated James sang "Maybe I'm Amazed" by Paul McCartney. After Ryan closed the show the band played the song, as suppose to the typical theme music being played.
After Jordin Sparks' performance there was some feedback.
There were 72 million votes.

Bottom 3: No Bottom 3 as results were given at random
This week's Co-Mentor was Lady Gaga. She was only shown mentoring for the second song of each contestant as the first song just had a video clip of the contestants announcing the song choice they made.
At the beginning of the recap, Ryan's mic was left on and you could hear him talking.
song writer (and inspiration for tonight's theme) Mike Stoller was in the audience tonight
Like often at this stage, Ryan revealed the results by making two groups of two (James and Haley on one side and Lauren and Jacob on the other side) and then announced that Scotty was safe and to pick which side he also believed was safe, to which Scotty refused.
Lady Antebellum performed "Just a Kiss" and Jennifer Lopez Ft. Pitbull performed "On The Floor". This is the second time that a Judge has performed on the Idol stage, the first being Paula Abdul in Season 8. There was also a trailer video for Jennifer's newest single "I'm Into You". This is her second music video shown this season and the third time a Judge has shown a music video (although unlike the other two, this wasn't the full video, just a clip).
The Group Number was "Happy Together" by The Turtles.
The Ford Music Video was "Be Yourself" by Morcheeba. The Idols are showing off their talents. Jacob is singing, James is juggling and balancing a chair on his chin, Lauren is throwing cards at a board and making a diamond shape, Scotty is doing a wheelie. Haley pulls up and parks her car without having to touch the steering wheel.
After his elimination, Jacob sang "A House Is Not a Home" by Dionne Warwick.
There were 60 million votes.
When Ryan was reading Lauren's critique there was a weird buzzing like noise.
When Ryan was talking before the Ford Video was shown for a few seconds some music could be heard playing.
Ryan goofed up Lady Antebellum's name when he was first mentioning that they would be performing.
