American Idol's Top 9 unleashed their inner rock star Wednesday, tackling songs that fit into the theme "I'm with the Band."
While most of the performers hit some high notes in their performances, the theme was a perfect fit for a few singers who have already drawn comparisons to lead singers from legendary bands.
Leading the pack was Caleb Johnson, 22, who rocked the stage, going toe-to-toe with the band as they jammed "Dazed and Confused" by Led Zeppelin.

American Idol's Top 11 sang songs from the cinema on Wednesday, but who possessed the Gravity to impress the judges and which contestants are destined to be Gone with the Wind?
Jena Irene, 17, who was in the Bottom 3 last week, earned a standing ovation from Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez, and a prolonged ovation from the crowd, following her electrifying performance of "Decode" at the piano.
Urban said there was a "ferocity" about the way she performed the Twilight song, comparing it to "hurtling along the edge of a cliff," while Lopez called it the best performance of the night and yelled, "America, get on board!"

"Harsh Harry" has been out in full force, but it was the fans who made the important decision of who was going home on American Idol Thursday.
"I just want them to get better," Harry Connick Jr. said to fellow judges Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban after a particularly negative critique on Wednesday night's performance show that left at least one contestant in tears.
While no contestants received universal praise from the judges Wednesday, Urban had guaranteed finalists Sam Woolf and Emily Piriz that they would be safe despite the tough criticism.
But who did America deem worthy of another week in the competition?

If you were looking for information that could actually help you win your Oscars pool, this isn't the place. (Here, this will get you started.)
Sure, we're anxious to see who will come out on top in the battle of Lupita Nyong'o vs. Jennifer Lawrence (or, as well call it, Most Charming Category Ever). We're just as curious to see which film will take home Best Picture honors. But, more importantly, which meme will win the night?
It's already been a hairy, heel-tossing and sing-songy awards show season that's produced no shortage of meme-orable moments.

And then there were 12.
The American Idol Top 13 lost their first member on Thursday night just one day after wowing the judges and viewers with their strong first performances.
Sam Woolf, 17, Majesty Rose, 21, and M.K. Nobilette, 20, appeared to be early fan favorites but no one was guaranteed safe as host Ryan Seacrest informed the contestants who would be moving forward in the competition. Spoiler alert: Keep reading to find out who went home.
