Usher 'hurts their feelings a little bit' on 'American Idol'

Usher is the guest mentor as "American Idol" has its top10 singing soul and R&B tonight. The audience greets his introductory video with a big roar. They show him meeting the contestants, looking cooler than cool.

[UPDATE: Usher was one of the top mentors "Idol" has ever had. Click here to read about how he worked his magic tonight.]

He tells them he might "hurt their feelings a little bit," because he wants to push them to be great. They need to "own their moment," he adds, which is awesome, because apart from Siobhan Magnus, Aaron Kelly and Crystal Bowersox they've been mainly renting the moment.
