Reed Grimm is singing the theme song to "Family Matters" next on "American Idol," and it's all jazzy and scatting style. It's fun and the judges love it -- he's got a huge smile.

"You had us all enthralled," says Randy Jackson.

Aaron Marcellus is through, Chase Likens as well. Just snippets; some other people are shown making it through without names or even snippets.

Sisters Patricia Bell and Samantha Novacek; Patricia is a "planker," and says her sister sings better when she lies horizontally.

OK. Sings "Like We Never Loved at All," with some emotion and urgency in her voice. I like her.

"I feel like there were some guts behind the voice," says Jennifer Lopez. "Sweet, clever, great notes" says Steven Tyler, as Randy drops Faith Hill as someone she reminds him of.
