American Idol 10 Top 4: Inspirational and Lieber & Stoller 

Here’s how it goes. Para peserta yang tersisa diberi kesempatan untuk memilih lagu apapun yang menurut mereka menginspirasi, tanpa bantuan Jimmy Iovine untuk mementori. Setelah itu, mereka menyanyikan lagu karya Lieber & Stoller. Disini, Jimmy membawa Lady Gaga untuk ikut mementori mereka. Surprise-nya adalah semua kontestan melakukan apa yang disarankan oleh Gaga supaya penampilan mereka lebih menarik.

James Durbin – “Don’t Stop Believing” By Journey
ST: “What you can’t do with your voice, you did tonight.”
JL: “You know what that showed me James. that you can sing anything. ‘Cause I wasn’t sure about that song for you, I’m gonna be honest…but you just told me that I was absolutely wrong.”
RJ: “You’re peaking at the right time, dude. You’re having a moment every single week and I love it.”
AI: Cara yang bagus untuk memulai acara. Tapi lagi-lagi James kehilangan kendali vokal dan para juri kehilangan kesadaran karena terlalu asyik menikmati apa yang disajikannya di panggung. Inilah alasan mengapa aku enggak suka aksi panggung seperti konser. (7.5/10)

Haley Reinhart – “Earthsong” by Michael Jackson
JL: “That song has a beautiful message, no doubt, but I want you to be thinking about (what everybody else is doing) when choosing. That’s part of competing.”
RJ: “Just keeping it really real…it confused me with who you are as an artist. It felt like to me you were screaming; you were at the top of your range.”
ST: “That song showed me that you can. It wasn’t a hit song but you sang it, you nailed it.”
AI: Interesting song choice, tapi J.Lo dan Randy malah sepakat menyebutnya wrong choice of song. Mungkin sangat sakit di hati mereka saat tahu Haley memilih lagu balada yang dinyanyikannya dengan caranya tanpa sedikitpun embel-embel “membosankan”. (8/10)

Scotty McCreery – “Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning”
RJ: “Dude, I think it’s the perfect song choice for where we are now as a country. I applaud you for that, big time, heart to heart.”
ST: “I saw you almost lose it in the middle because of your passion for what you were singing about. That’s real important, I see it in your eyes right now. You keep that up.”
JL: “I’m in love with you. I can’t help it…I can tell that you know who you are. I can tell you know what touches other people. And that is just, it’s the mark of really somebody who was meant to do this.”
AI: Untuk yang ini, aku kasih tepuk tangan buat juri yang memuji pilihan lagunya yang sangat tepat, sehingga tidak sedikitpun komentar mereka menyinggung vokalnya. Bukan, tidak ada masalah dengan nyanyian Scotty di lagu ini. Hanya saja enggak ada progress dari awal kehadirannya di American Idol hingga nyanyiannya ini. (8/10)

Lauren Alaina – “Anyway” by Martina McBride
ST: “Your voice is so pure and perfect and right on pitch, and you just deliver a song like a blue plate special. And I’m in love with the buckles on your shoes.”
JL: “I really do feel like you’re listening to what we’re telling you. We may seem tough at times, but it’s all about helping you get there to that last moment.”
RJ: “America, Lauren is back in it to win it! That was hot…amazing, and a great time to do it.”
AI: Jadi teringat Kristy Lee Cook. Dia punya moment dengan lagu ini, di Top 7 dengan tema yang sama, inspirational. Lauren mengeluarkan kemampuan maksimalnya menyanyikan lagu ini. Nafasnya masih kurang panjang sehingga bagian akhir chorusnya enggak dinyanyikan dalam satu nafas. Tapi di babak 1, Lauren yang terbaiklah. (8.5/10)

Haley Reinhart – “I Who Have Nothing”
JL: “Look what you’re capable of! We will never take it easy on you, because you’re that amazing.”
RJ: “We were hard on you before, but what you did is you came back…baby, you just had a moment right here which put you in it to win it! Yo! Haley! This is what’s going down.”
ST: “This was a classic moment with classic Haley — you just Reinharted yourself into the middle of next week.”
AI: Aku suka komentar Steven Tyler, aku suka standing o yang dikasih para juri, aku suka penampilan Haley yang dramatis dibantu oleh Lady Gaga. Aku suka tak ada seorangpun yang ingat akan moment Jordin Sparks saat menyanyikan lagu ini di Idol 4 tahun lalu. (9/10)

Scotty McCreery – “Young Blood”
RJ: “You were actually having fun with Gaga. You’re like a seasoned professional on this show now, dude.”
ST: “Dude, you made Gaga’s yaya go la-la. How could you do that?”
JL: “It seems like you really hit your stride right now, and now it’s about the sprint kind of to the finish line.”
AI: Mestinya Scotty enggak menambah aroma Gaga dalam penampilannya. Dia sendiri udah punya cara untuk menampilkan lagu dengan cara yang eksentrik. Yang ini mengubah segalanya menjadi Scotty McCreepy. (5/10)

Lauren Alaina – “Trouble”
ST: “That was well done…there’s the character that came out again. And I just love you.”
JL: “I saw a performance quality in you when you came out of…that screen in the back that I had not seen in you before…it was total attack, and it was really, really good.”
RJ: “Like we were saying to Scotty earlier, we saw a fun side of you…it’s definitely kind of out of your typical, like, pop country kind of thing, and I actually really enjoyed it.”
AI: Ah, it was sassy, it was bitchy. Aku merasa Lauren terengah-engah menyanyikan bagian kedua lagunya, dimana dia harus gerak dan sebagainya. (7/10)

James Durbin “Love Potion #9″
JL: “You know what that showed me James. that you can sing anything. ‘Cause I wasn’t sure about that song for you, I’m gonna be honest…but you just told me that I was absolutely wrong.”
RJ: “You’re peaking at the right time, dude. You’re having a moment every single week and I love it.”
ST: “What you can’t do with your voice, you did tonight.”
AI: Aku enggak yakin kalau aku lebih enjoy penampilan yang ini dari penampilannya yang pertama. Secara vokal sih memang lebih bagus yang ini, lebih terkontrol dan teriakannya sempurna. Tapi bagaimana dia menutup lagunya dengan suasana hening yang dibuat sampai 2 kali itu berlebihan. (8/10)

Beberapa blog memprediksi Haley Reinhart yang akan tersisih minggu ini. Tapi, bagaimana Amerika bisa mengeliminasi satu-satunya kontestan dengan standing o dalam 2 minggu berturut? Menurut buku sejarah AI 10, penampilan penutup selalu aman. Jadi James Durbin aman. Lauren Alaina dari 2 penampilannya adalah yang paling solid, jadi dia kemungkinan besar aman. Scotty McCreery selalu menjadi pengecualian, banyak yang vote untuknya. Dan memang akan sangat disayangkan kalau Haley Reinhart yang harus tersisih. But then again, we never know.

RESULT!
72juta vote yang masuk! Terbanyak dari yang pernah ada…
Perform: Lady Gaga “You And I”, Enrique Iglesias “Dirty Dancer” & “I Like It”, Jordin Sparks “The Real Woman”. Juga ada premiere video Steven Tyler “It Feels So Good”.

Result: Bottom 2 adalah Scotty dan James
Eliminasi: James Durbin!
