– 2011 top 13 perform Lady Gaga’s Born This Way all dressed in white.
– One of my favorites, James Durbin, performs with Judas Priest and rocks out the Idol stage.
– Jacob Lusk performs gospel number with Gladys Night.
– Casey Abrams and Jack Black perform a hilarious routine – my eyes were fixed on Jack, love him. With Jack Black and Gladys Night in the same arena I was hoping Robert Downey Jr and Ben Stiller would show up for a dose of Midnight Train to Georgia.
– The ladies perform a medly of Beyoncé’s songs and all of a sudden the diva herself appears on stage looking hot and fabulous and performs One Plus One.
– Haley Reinhart performs with Tony Bennett for a duet.
– TLC with L’il Jon (woot woot – a little Celebrity Apprentice in the house) perform with the top 13 girls – the crowd is up out of their seats.
– Scotty McCreery performs with Tim McGraw, Live Like You Are Dying – OMG, I am going to faint. Scotty melted my heart tonight, he was so freaking amazing that I am at a lost for words – but I’m singing along, clapping and swaying back and forth, love it.
– Marc Anthony, a.k.a. Mr. JLo, performs a Latin number with his wife that is so self indulging, it is boring. Yawn.
– Top 13 guys are back on stage dressed in black singing …. amongst other things, Pussycat Pussycat! ok, where is Tom Jones? Oh, there he is, damn that man has aged well.
Lauren and Scotty surprise their favorite teacher’s with a Ford Focus each and then Ryan Seacrest in turn surprises the two finalists with any Ford vehicle of their choice! Wow.
– Lady Gaga performs Edge of Glory.
– Lauren Alaina sings Before He Cheats with previous American Idol winner Carrie Underwood.
– Beyoncé is back performing by herself this time, singing Make Love To Me. I don’t know about you, but having Beyoncé repeatedly demanding me to make love to her is kind of creeping me out!
– U2’s Bono and The Edge performing with cast-members from the troubled Broadway musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.
– Steven Tyler closes out the performances with a solo of Dream On.
