In the world's ultimate talent search - where the eyes of a nation are upon the best undiscovered singers in the country, where the audience has the power to make or break you, and where a million-dollar recording contract is on the line, there is only one rule: If you can sing it, bring it.

Round of 13: Our Favorite Artists
March 9

This week Jimmy Iovine is with the Top 13...singing their "Favorite Artists"

1. Lauren Alaina - Shania Twain..."Any Man of Mine” by Shania Twain. She knew the words, but her performance lacked a bit of zip. It felt very karaoke and plain. TROUBLE.

2. Casey Abrams - Joe Cocker - "With A Little Help from My friends." - Great song choice...but his performance was so OVER THE TOP, it bothered me. Voice was terrible and growly, just like Joe. TROUBLE

3. Ashthon Jones – “When You Tell Me That You Love Me” by Diana Ross –Something about this performance bothered me. The vocals were too forced and the vocals were recited robotically. No passion or energy. TROUBLE.

4. Paul McDonald – “Come Pick Me Up” by Ryan Adams – The first man in the bottom three? What the heck is this? Bad song choice and vocals all over the place...not really good. TROUBLE.

5. Pia Toscano – “All By Myself” by Celine Dion –The first really good performance of the night. Passion, good vocals and she is showing to be a real threat in this competition. SAFE.

6. James Durbin – “Maybe I’m Amazed” by Paul McCartney - I liked the blues/rock aspect of the vocals, and he toned himself down a bit from Judas Priest. Versatility pays off. SAFE.

7. Haley Reinhart – “Blue” by LeAnn Rimes -Ok...a) that dress is too adult for her and b) the vocals are making me blue. Randy is on point

8. Jacob Lusk – “I Believe I Can Fly” by R. Kelly - Heard this song a zillion times...but the vocal gymnastics are too much for me. He has the chops, he will be back next week, but he needs to improve from this. SAFE.

9. Thia Megia – “Smile” by Michael Jackson -- Great stuff, but here's the problem...I want her to not be "Ballad Girl" and I need her to be more energetic next week. SAFE.

10. Stefano Langone – “Lately” by Stevie Wonder --OOoooh Interesting...Techno Stevie....And his voice matches the beat. I like this a lot. SAFE.

11. Karen Rodriguez - "I Could Fall In Love” by Selena Again playing the hispanic card, but this time it works. Big TIME. Vocals and performance rocked. Liked it a lot. SAFE.

12. Scotty McCreery - “The River” by Garth Brooks. Yes I love this guy. And he killed it again. He is country and he isn't running away from it. SAFE.

13, “Umbrella” by Rihanna - Naima Adepopo closes the show with a big performance...and a reggae mix to boot. Loved this as well SAFE.

The verdict....5 people in trouble

Lauren, Casey, Ashthon, Paul and Haley

Bottom Three: Haley, Paul, Ashthon
