The elimination episode will be telecast at 9:00pm EST Thursday on Fox (7:30am IST, Friday). Last week's elimination round saw 22-year-old Dexter Roberts being sent home.
Wednesday's episode was a sort of a litmus test for the contestants as they had to perform two songs each from country and rock genres.
Jena Irene, who rocked last week with "Creep", started off the night with "Barracuda" by Heart. It was a good performance though the judges opined that she should have opened up a little bit. She also sang "So Small" by Carrie Underwood, which got her heaps of praises, especially from Jennifer Lopez.
Sam Woolf sang "It's Time" by Imagine Dragons and it was a good rendition. His second song was "You're Still the One" by Shania Twain. He did reasonably well but it looked like he had to open up a little bit more.
CJ Harris took on "American Woman" by The Guess Who and it was not very impressive. He then sang "Whatever It Is" by Zac Brown Band, which also did not come out good.
Alex Preston sang "Animal" by Neon Trees. It was a good rendition but something seemed to be missing. He then took on "Always On My Mind" by Willie Nelson, receiving praises from the judges.
Jessica Meuse sang "Somebody to Love" by Jefferson Airplane and it was a good performance. She then took on "Jolene" by Dolly Parton, for which she got mixed response from the judges.
Caleb Johnson took on "Sting Me" by Black Crowes and it was a good rendition. He dropped his microphone midway through the performance but that did not dampen his spirit. He then sang "Undo It" by Carrie Underwood, which was also impressive.
