As featured on Fox on Wednesday night, the four remaining American Idol Season 11 finalists sang two songs each; with this week’s theme is “California Dreamin’” and “Songs They Wish They’d Written” or simply any inspirational song of their own choice.

After each of them performed, the three judges, Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, and Jennifer Lopez made their usual observation, with Jennifer calling the first performance of Phillip Phillips as “perfect and great job”.

Meanwhile, the judges noted that Hollie, who was the second performer that night, has improved a lot, with Steven noting that her creativity has bloomed; and Jennifer, who was seen a bit teary-eyed, said she have always believed in her talent.

Apparently, before the second solo performances of the Top 4 finalists, Joshua Ledet and Phillip Phillips, who had a duet last time, did it again and sang “This Love” by Maroon 5, with Randy saying that was a perfect song and a perfect duet as well.

Later, it was Hollie Cavanagh and Jessica Sanchez who performed a duet and sang “Eternal Flame” by The Bangles, and afterwards, the four of them performed together and sang “I’ve Been Waiting (For A Girl Like You)” by Foreigner.

For Round 2, both Joshua Ledet and Jessica Sanchez received a standing ovation from the judges on each of their performances; where Joshua sang “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World” by James Brown, and Jessica sang “And I’m Not Telling You” by Jennifer Holiday.
