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: Imported From Detroit
March 28

Last night, the Idolers went to Michigan to write their songbook. But when all is said and done, only seven will motor to the next round. The other one's going to have his or her Idol dreams stalled by the side of the road. All that, and performances by Katharine McPhee & One Republic, Keith Urban, and season 11's Colton Dixon. It's Results Time!

First of all, happy 450th episode! Here's "Old Time Rock & Roll" by Bob Seger courtesy the top 8.

It's been a while since Ford has asked anything of the Idols. This week, we start our first "Fiesta Movement Idol Mission": give the gift of song to a bunch of school kids. Means a lot more than a music video with these finalists and a lot more pleasing to the ear, frankly.

So we got what you think about last night. Here's what Jimmy thought.

Candice: "She's not going anywhere but the top."

Kree/Janelle: "Kree is a pro, Janelle looked like an amateur."

Lazaro: "Lazaro did much better this week than he did last week."

Janelle: "It was so, so transcending of anything she did."

Devin: "He was very very good, but compared to every one else, he came up short."

Candice/Angie/Amber: "It was really , really , really good. Unique sound and unique look. I'd make a record with those girls tomorrow."

Burnell: "I was impressed."

Angie: "I'm not sure if these kids should be picking their own songs."

Amber: "I would bet anything that she's not in the bottom three this week."

Lazaro/Devin/Burnell: "I guess we have a new boy band in town, and this one's called WRONG Direction."

Kree: "(Her top register) is so beautiful."

OVERALL: "I would say the boys are in the bottom three, and I would think Lazaro is going home."

Last night, Smokey Robinson told Aretha Franklin to turn on Kree's performance... she said she was NOT going anywhere. ... She's right. She ISN'T going anywhere.

Let's break from the results to welcome back to the Idol stage a finalist who is tearing up the Christian and gospel charts. Singing his new single, "Love Has Come For Me", COLTON DIXON! (The album is called "A Messenger", it's out now).

Next up, singing their new single "If I Lose Myself" with season 4 alum and "Smash" star Katharine McPhee, it's ONEREPUBLIC!

And finally... Ryan's in Keith's seat, because KEITH URBAN is hitting the stage with his new one, "Long Hot Summer". Hey, we got an hour to fill. Oh, Keith'll be out on tour soon with Little Big Town and Dustin Lynch. More info at americanidol.com.

And Jimmy called it. The MEN are in the bottom three.

Mariah makes another bold prediction: it will not be a unanimous decision on the one-save tonight.... but Burnell doesn't have to worry about that. He's safe.

Singing for his life tonight... after nearly 26 million votes... is DEVIN VELEZ.

Devin will sing for the save, "It's Impossible (Somos Novios)". See, if he sang like this all the time, he wouldn't be in danger. He'd be more than just one of the five R&B singers in the contest. And yes, there's still a glut.

Three weeks to use the save... but they will NOT use it tonight. As Mariah predicted, it was not unanimous.

And then there were seven. Until next week, remember to support local & independent music!
