Brothers Martin and Aaron Gutierrez, who are fun and instantly likeable, are next on "American Idol." They sing "Lean on Me," and it's totally engaging, they play off each other and both have really pleasant voices. 

Man, it's officially the year of duos on this show; one of the most enjoyable performances so far.

"I loved it," says Jennifer Lopez, "it was unreal," says Steven Tyler. Everyone's blown away and  they're through to Hollywood.

Yeah, I really liked them both. 

Show ends with pimped-out Cooper Robinson, who says he's from a plantation in Arkansas and who "American Idol" decides to subtitle, shows up all bedecked in some purple uniform-like outfit with white feathers and all.

He's just nutty; He's got none of the talent of "Pants on the Ground," a lot of ranting and raving and jangling.

He leaves but lurks and rants in the hallway outside. Since he's the last contestant, Lopez asks, "Is he gone? Cause I'll wait."
