associate director of admissions

SINGLE JEOPARDY!: States' Most Populous Cities, Sitcoms, Newspapers & Magazines, The Language of Sport, The Atmosphere, Waits & Measures

Mattea starts wtih $200 the Language of Sport. Julian finds the Daily Double under $1000 Waits & Measures. He's going for it on this...
- WAITS & MEASURES for $2000: This name for a type of ounce used to measure gold comes from a city in medieval France, not ancient Turkey
"What is bullion?" No, it was a troy ounce. He recovers to $4200 to lead Mattea's $3400. Terri on $1200 gets the first go in...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Politicians in Their School Days, Entertainment Awards, Fun with Cooking Terms, The 18th Century, Felines in Fiction, Middle P

... with $1200 Fun with Cooking Terms. Mattea finds the first Daily Double under $1200 The 18th Century. She wagers $2000 on this...
- THE 18th CENTURY for $2000: The 2 dynasties vying for power in the War of the Spanish Succession were the Habsburg & this French one
"Who are the Bourbons?" RIGHT for $7800! She also finds the other under $2000 Middle P. She goes for $4000 on this...
- MIDDLE P for $4000: 2 linked lines of verse.
"What is anapest?" No, it's a couplet, dropping her to $13,800. She recovers to $17,000 to $11,000 for Julain. Terri is all but out of it with $800.

- MUSICAL INSPIRATIONS: "Tuileries" & "The Great Gate of Kiev" were 2 of the artworks that inspired this classical work completed in 1874
Correct response: what is Pictures at an Exhibition?

Mattea is the only one correct to win $22,001, giving her $460,184 to round the week out on her 19th triumph.

Last week on Idol, the top 11 performed for your votes. The judges end up saving Lady K, while Tristen Gressett was shown the door. Now the top 10 will perform AGAIN as we embark on our annual tradition... DISNEY NIGHT.

The top 10 visit Disneyland where they are greeted by today's mentor, singer/dancer/actor Derek Hough.

We kick this off with the females singing "We Don't Talk About Bruno" from "Encanto", joined by Adassa and Rhenzy Feliz (C-Note: ... the guy from Runaways has pipes?!). The men join in as well.

So while Ryan as Magic Mirror calls Luke the fairest of them all... and Lionel the most talented, we get a wheeled-out Katy Perry in her annual cosplay best... as Ariel the Little Mermaid. And the Little Mermaid took a big fall. Woops.

Okay, on to the matter at hand. Voting is live via phone, app, text, and At the end, we will reveal the result.
- LADY K: "How Far I'll Go" by Auli'i Cravalho (from "Moana"). Lionel says this is the best she's sounded all season. Katy thought Vanessa Williams was on the stage delivering a "stunning" vocal. Luke says the judges were vindicated saving her.
- NOAH THOMPSON: "You've Got a Friend in Me" by Randy Newman & Lyle Lovett (from "Toy Story"). Katy's favorite song is reinvented. Luke thinks Noah has a bright future. Lionel loves the song choice.
- EMYRSON FLORA: "Carried Me With You" by Brandi Carlile (from "Onward") (C-Note: AKA the Disney movie that was released just as the world went all bat-guano insane). Luke enjoyed watching her have fun. Lionel thought she was top notch. Katy says she's come so far and that her voice was spectacular. Translation... meh.
- HUNTERGIRL: "I See The Light" by Mandy Moore & Zachary Levi (from "Tangled"). Katy is quick to say that if this is how everyone sounds by going to Disneyland, they should all go once a week. Luke says she carries the torch of country music (RIP Naomi Judd).
- JAY: "Remember Me" by Benjamin Bratt (from "Coco"). Katy says he used the stage better than anyone and was controlled. Luke says it was timeless. Lionel says Jay is a star.
- LEAH MARLENE: "When She Loved Me" by Sarah MacLachlan (from "Toy Story 2"). Luke thought she was an amazing singer. Lionel says she knocked it out of the park. Katy thought she was silky smooth.
- NICOLINA: "Poor Unfortunate Souls" by Pat Carroll (from "The Little Mermaid"). Katy... was genuinely terrified. She stole the show. Lionel thought this was the best Disney night ever.
- MIKE PARKER: "You'll Be in My Heart" by Phil Collins (from "Tarzan"). Katy could feel every moment. Luke thought he navigated the song masterfully.
- CHRISTIAN GUARDINO: "Circle of Life" by Elton John (from "The Lion King"). Luke thought he nailed it. Lionel thought he was in his light. Katy calls it his best performance yet.
- FRITZ HAGER: "Go the Distance" by Michael Bolton (from "Hercules"). Lionel says Fritz has stepped into his light. Katy wants America to vote... but time's up!

RESULTS: The top 7 in no particular order...
- LEah Marlene
- Jay
- Noah Thompson
- Fritz Hager
- HunterGirl
- Nicolina
- Christian Guardino
Which means that Lady K, Mike Parker, and Emyrson Flora have all been eliminated.

The top 7 will sing again NEXT WEEK, but on Monday, a celebration 20 years in the making.

Disney is the parent company of ABC.
