Pop star Miley Cyrus not only sat front row, but also served as mentor for the remaining contestants. But after a barefoot and dreadlocked Bowersox sang Janis Joplin's Me & Bobby McGee, Simon couldn't help but sing her praises saying to the other AI hopefuls:

    "I thought Crystal was in a different league. You’ve gotta start pushing yourselves now."

Siobhan Magnus also stood out amongst the Top 11 after impressing the judges with her rendition of Stevie Wonder's Superstition.

However, Paige Miles didn't quite impress the judges with her version of Phil Collins' Against All Odds. Kara didn't hold back her feelings, telling Miles:

    "It was the worst vocal that I ever heard from you and possibly of the season."

Tim Urban, Aaron Kelly, Michael Lynche, AKA Big Mike, Andrew Garcia, Katie Stevens, Didi Benami and Casey James also left mixed impressions with both audiences and the four judges.

Tonight, we'll see which singer gets eliminated. This is a pivotal decision because the Top 10 will be part of the American Idol tour.
