Here we go! Nearly 33 million votes came in last night, Seacrest says.
Wow, the twist is announced right away. What is it? THE JUDGES' SAVE.
From now until the Top 5, the judges can override one elimination. Their decision has to be unanimous, and once they use it they can't get it back. Oh, and two contestants are eliminated the week after the save. Sounds good.
After that bomb is dropped, we get some shots of the kids in their mansion. I really like the steam room shots.
Next, it's group song time. They go for a medley of Jackson 5 hits, which basically consists of "I Want You Back" and "ABC." Still, it's not that bad, and Scott even pulls out some dance moves. Is it bad that he's a better dancer than Megan Joy?
During the commercial break, we inexplicably get a shot of Nathaniel Marshall's audition. Man, I miss that weird kid.
