With two Idols safe, Ryan Seacrest called both Jason Castro and Syesha Mercado to center stage. However, it was too early in the show for Seacrest to reveal who was going home. For the Ford Music video, the final four performed “Ring Of Fire.” In a viewer call-in segment, one viewer asked David Cook out on a date, and another viewer asked the finalists what the biggest challenge was that they’ve had to overcome.
For the first guest musical performance, Maroon 5 performed “If I Never See Your Face Again.” For the second guest musical performance, American Idol 4 runner-up Bo Bice sang “Witness.” After Bo Bice’s performance, Ryan Seacrest called Jason Castro and Syesha Mercado back to center stage.
