Tim Urban, Todrick Hall, Lee Dewyze and Casey James are all brought down. One of them is gone. Others will make "American Idol's" finals. Ryan says some stuff about all of them, then tells Casey he's in.

Tim of the nine lives makes it, too, which means goodbye, Todrick. And also yeah, there's definitely gonna be some surprises Thursday night. And Lee is indeed in. 

Todrick does a great encore of "Somebody to Love," definitely the best goodbye song we've seen all season. He has a good attitude and tons of talent. This isn't the end for him.

He blew us away in the auditions with the song he wrote himself, and he blows Ryan and the audience away again Thursday night. See ya, Todrick. Definitely gonna miss you.
