  • Trivia

    • A video was shown of the Idols watching a tape of Lady Gaga performing "You and I". Enrique Iglesias performed "Dirty Dancer" and "I Like It". During "Dirty Dancer" a video of Usher singing his part was shown and Pitbull's part of "I Like It" was used in the backtrack. Jordin Sparks performed "I Am Woman" and a music video for "(It) Feels Good" by Steven Tyler was shown. This is the third different Judge to premiere a music video on Idol, and the second time this season (three including the preview for Jennifer's last week).
