The next duet of the night belonged to Trevor McBane and Bishop, who took the stage with "River".

"I love seeing that connection, you re singing to your family and singing with your whole heart", said Katy Perry. Richie agreed, saying "there's an opening attraction and a starring attraction", and Dominique was definitely "the star attraction".

When Dennis Lorenzo met soul singer Allen Stone, Lorenzo told Stone that he was excited to sing Stone's hit song "Unaware" with him because it had been the song he auditioned, and made it to Hollywood, with.

"Way to show up, Gabby", said Perry. She sang Call Me.

First up was Catie Turner with Andy Grammer for a performance of "Good To Be Alive".

Host Ryan Seacrest even manages to put Katy on the spot at one point, by asking her who she'd like to duet with in her career. All rights reserved.

Her energy was infectious and appreciated by the gracious Nettles.

Starting April 22, "American Idol" will air live and each of the top 14 contestants will perform for America's votes.

The "Born This Way" hitmaker said on her "Gaga: Five Foot Two" Netflix documentary when criticizing the singer for feuding with her through the media rather than to her face: "I just want Madonna to f**king push me up against the wall and kiss me and tell me I'm a piece of s**t".

Lionel said Catie "killed it", and Luke added that it sounded like Andy and Catie had been on tour together all year long. He sang Lionel Richie's "Hello" and he did not outshine the original version of the track. It was clear Kay Kay was out of her comfort zone with this song, but she did the best she could with it. The judges agreed, with Richie giving the pair a standing ovation mid-song. Later, he joined Brandon for an impromptu duet of the tune.

The key blow to Spring's chances seemed to be when the judges picked the other female country singer in the field, Pittsburgh 18-year-old Gabby Barrett, about half way through the selection. She chose Morris' "My Church" for her solo performance. He shocks the judges from the starts when he sings in Spanish! Briggs has the kind of presence and energy that can overtake a stage, but Foehner has a power of his own, simply by singing. Perry was overwhelmed by the performance, joking afterwards, "I saw some things my minister parents had to shun". You sure are a minister and you can preach to me any time you want! All of these talents are already stars in the making, some just need to find their personal identity and artistry, while others are not quite ready for the ringer of the "American Idol" process.
