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 8: The 1980s
April 4

In our first shocker of the season (but not the last), Colton gets booted on his favorite worship song. You can't take that time back, but we can go back in time. Thanks to guest mentors Gwen Stefani and Tony Kanal, we're going back to the 80s, and no doubt will the competition be fierce.

1. Deandre Brackensick - I Like It - Debarge - NOW I remember this song...do I like this performance...not so much. For a guy with pipes like this, his passion level is zero. And why with a killer falsetto like this, he didn't choose a Prince song? (depending on the availability of course) TROUBLE

2. Elise Testone - Foreigner - I Want to Know What Love is - I am trying to remember who she is trying to sound like...but it isn't good. This is a pale, passionless performance that means nothing. She is definitely in the bottom three...AGAIN. TROUBLE.

DUET #1 - Colton/Skylar - Islands in the Stream

3. Phillip Phillips - That's All - Genesis - Same Phil Phillips. While I was bored, the girlies will vote to keep him. This was his WORST performance by a LONG SHOT. But it doesn't matter. SAFE.

DUET #2 - Hollie/Deandre - I'm So Excited

4. Joshua Ledet - If You Dont Know Me By Now -Simply Red - Oversinging mess. TROUBLE.

5. Jessica Sanchez - How Will I Know - Whitney Houston - Wise beyond her years, perfect song choice, and killer pipes. Best performance of the night, by a long shot. SAFE.

DUET #3 - Phillip/Elise - Stop Dragging My Heart Around

6. Hollie Cavanagh - What a Feeling - Irene Cara - The thing about this was a) it was Karaoke b) this felt like a cruise ship program c) this was boring. TROUBLE.

Duet #4 - Joshua/Jessica - Knew You Were Waiting for Me

7. Colton Dixon - Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper(by way of Quiet Drive) - He took their version(and very cool that he made sure to acknowledge it) and absolutely KILLED it. LOVED THIS. SAFE.

8. Skylar Laine - Wind Beneath My Wings - Bette Midler - Again, another great vocal by Skylar. Great choice and arrangement. SAFE.

Trouble - Deandre, Elise, Joshua, Hollie
Bottom Three - Deandre, Elise, Hollie
Bottom Two -. Elise, Hollie
Out - Hollie with no save.
