'American Idol' reveals remaining Top 14 contestants after more all-star duets

Marcio Donaldson sings

Watch American Idol season 16, episode 11 online

The judges praised her for scaling back her hair flips, which drew earlier criticism from judge Katy Perry.

Following Sunday and Monday's episodes, Mara Justine, Jurnee, Maddie Poppe, Ada Vox, Garrett Jacobs, Marcio Donaldson, and Caleb Lee Hutchinson all made it to the top 14.

Luke reiterated how Jurnee sings so "effortlessly", and Katy pointed out that Jurnee and Lea had a lovely synchronicity in their duet. Bebe got him to loosen up a bit and even show off some dance moves. Luke tells teen crooner Caleb, "Nobody has "aw-shucks" country boy down better than you". It was also the last chance for the singers to duet with celebrity guests like Lea Michele (Glee), Rachel Platten, Sugarland, and Allen Stone. They sing Colbie's hit "Bubbly". The two of them stage an emotional piano-ballad rendition of the tune that leaves Mara in tears by the end. Poor Lionel gets booed for simply being honest and telling Alyssa her identity didn't come through with that performance. "I mean, it's just been so great - this voice is out of control and getting to sing with someone of the vocal caliber was a real honor and it was so fun to get to sing together". And, in the words of judge Luke Bryan, she "brought the house down" yet again. One gave the panel a complete surprise, and another performance garnered a loving hug from Katy Perry.

But They somehow caught on to head coach Steve Kerr's insistence that they must have "ball security" to pull out the victory. In addition to scoring their highest total in more than a week, the team held the Spurs to 40.0 percent from the field.

Marcio and Allen Stone performed "What's Going On", but Marcio only had one day to prepare, as he was originally supposed to sing with Toni Braxton. It turned out to be a flawless pairing. She does her second song of the evening with Amelia, and she tells the contestant that she wants "to feel the grit". Perry commended her protégé's "learning", and Lionel Richie compared the singer to a chick becoming "the whole chicken".

Benton's Garrett Jacobs is moving on to the next round of 'American Idol'.

Ron Bultongez stepped out of his comfort zone to sing the song "Someone to You" with Banners. "Let's go!" from the judges' table.

Trivia time: Banners' dad is Grammy victor Ken Nelson, who produced some of Coldplay's biggest hits, including "Yellow", "Clocks" and "Fix You".

Mara arguably had the best performance of the night, as she belted out "Fight Song" with Rachel Platten on the piano. The judges didn't see her "shine" on it. The duet is fine, but nothing more. Rexha, a pop singer, showed she was comfortable with the style, he said.
