Tim Urban, Crystal Bowersox, Michael Lynche, Katie Stevens, Siobhan Magnus and Lee Dewyze are all at center stage as "American Idol" cuts its second finalist.

Ryan talks to Lee, then talks about Siobhan, then asks Katie if she feels like she's hitting her stride. She says she just wants to get better each week. Michael says he's savoring every moment he gets to stick around, Crystal gets praised and Tim flashes his big grin as Ryan talks about him.

Crystal is safe, as is Siobhan (yaaaay!), as is Lee -- even though Ryan messes with him a bit. Which means Tim, Michael or Katie are gone.
