"Judges, quickly, who stood out tonight? Randy?" Seacrest asked.
"Jessica, Elise, Phil Phillips, Colton -- God," a flustered Jackson said.
"Yeah, Elise for me and Colton. [Also] Jessica," Lopez noted.

Sanchez sang Billy Joel's "Everybody has a Dream, while Testone performed "Vienna." Phillips performed "Movin' Out" and Dixon sang a rendition of "Piano Man" while playing the piano onstage.
In addition, Wednesday night's episode featured the debut of fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger as American Idol's new stylist, resulting in a dramatic makeover for Erika Van Pelt -- a 26-year-old from South Kingstown, RI who was originally a blonde with medium-length hair -- in which she had dyed her hair black and sported a short edgy cut.
Assuming the judges do not opt to use "The Judges' Save," the Idol finalist who received the fewest home-viewer votes following last night's broadcast will be eliminated from the competition during Thursday night's live results show.
