Ryan revealed three yeses immediately! Maybe these close friends had chosen to stay together! However, it was not meant to be because the final two votes were no. Someone would be going home tonight.

The contestants were each given one vote. If the Top 5 decided to stay together for another week then no one would be eliminated. However, the save meant TWO contestants would be sent home next week and the votes had to be unanimous.

The votes would be anonymous, but the contestants chatted with each other about their likely decisions before they cast their official votes.

Ryan revealed that for the first time in IDOL™ history the contestants had all the power. The Top 5 themselves would decide if the person with the lowest amount of votes would go home.

The contestants huddled around Sam Woolf after his elimination. They may be consoling their friend this week, but come next week, another of them will be on the chopping block. Tune in Wednesdays at 8/7c and Thursdays at 9/8c on FOX!

Sam Woolf performed Imagine Dragons' hit "It's Time" for his final IDOL™ performance.

Sam took his elimination in stride giving a solid performance to an emotional IDOL audience.

The final five discussed how much they loved America's song choices for them. The consensus was that this week was going to be a really tight competition.

After the vote was revealed, Ryan wasted no time in revealing that Sam Woolf had received the lowest number of votes and would be leaving the competition.

The judges walked on stage looking their best for what would prove to be a dramatic results show.

"It's a good thing when I see it" crooned Keith, and his performance definitely delivered!

Keith performed "Good Thing" off his album "Fuse."

Before any of the results were announced our talented judge and Country super star Keith Urban took the stage.

The Top 5 Results show started with a shocker when Ryan Seacrest introduced a new IDOL™ twist never seen on the show before! He promised an event that would knock the Top 5 off their feet!

Randy Jackson took a moment to give his take on the previous night's performance. "It's a mad dash to the end," said the IDOL™ veteran, and everyone wants to win. "Jena had an amazing night. She killed it," said Randy. He was "so proud" of Alex, but thought Jessica didn't have the best of nights "performance-wise." He noted that Sam "started shaky" and said "Caleb really turned the place upside down." How would the votes fall and what about this mysterious twist?
