Before Ryan got down to the nitty gritty releasing the first results of the night, Harry Connick Jr. took time to address the contestants on the nature of his criticism. It's no secret that Harry has been the most critical judge of the season, even earning the nickname Harsh Harry that has trended on Twitter several times. Harry told the Top 12 that he only has a short time to make the contestants "grow." He added that Season XIII's finalists are the "best group of talent since the first year," but he didn't see it last night. OUCH!
