The IDOL™ girls show off their personalities behind the scenes.

Sam, Majesty and Alex answered questions from reporters after the show.

Ryan wasted no time in revealing the contestant who received the lowest number of America's votes. It was Majesty Rose who had been in the bottom three for three weeks in a row! "I knew it!" she exclaimed after the announcement.

Majesty chose to perform "Happy" by Pharell Williams as her save me song. She cheerfully took the microphone from Ryan Seacrest and gave an upbeat and positive performance of the Oscar nominated song.

That put Majesty Rose, Sam Woolf and C.J. Roberts as the bottom three. Harry wasn't surprised at the contestants saying, "America is really, really smart." He went on to add that all the voting has been seemingly purely based on the week's performances and nothing else.

Confidence did not seem to be a problem for Majesty who skillfully commanded the stage during her performance. Jennifer praised her saying, "That's the Majesty I love!" Harry said that he's been waiting to connect with Majesty and, with her latest performance, feels that she's "very close" to making that happen. Harry added that America might not be latching on to Majesty because she's "so different" each week. Keith thought "Shake It Out" was a great song choice for Majesty, but thought she needed to learn to center herself vocally.

Majesty Rose claimed she was only special to herself and her preschool students back in Goldsboro, NC, but now she's special to all her fans across America. Majesty says that "confidence" is the biggest challenge she's had to overcome while on IDOL, but hopes that she'll be able to deliver her performance of "Shake It Out" by Florence and the Machine exactly the way she imagined it.

Who would join Dexter and Majesty in the bottom three? Based on America's votes Sam, C.J. and Jena were safe. That put MK Nobilette in the bottom three and in danger of elimination.

America differed from Randy's feedback this time. Caleb and Alex were named safe, but Majesty Rose was sent to the bottom three again this week. Would be she in danger of elimination?

Fans and contestants alike were shunted back into reality as Caleb, Majesty and Alex were called the the stage for their results. Randy thought Caleb's performance had been "a little lackluster," but thought that Majesty's effort would "bring her back to the front" of the competition. Alex got the most praise from Randy when he said that his performance was "amazing."

Harry "really liked" what Majesty did with the tune and noted that he thinks she's smart and complex. Keith thought that the song didn't work without the dance aspect of the song. Jennifer noted that she saw some fear in Majesty at the beginning of her performance and urged her to be more confident.

Majesty Rose brought a folksy vibe to "Wake Me Up" by Avicii. After being in the bottom three last week Majesty noted that her song choice during Top 10 week was "critical." Majesty ended up performing the song with a simple arrangement accompanied by her guitar.

Majesty and Jessica chatted with the press after the show.

Quickly things were called back to the dramatic when MK Nobilette, Ben Briley, Majesty Rose and Malaya Watson were called to the stage for results. Randy took a moment to share his thoughts on the previous night's performances. Randy thought Majesty's performance was just "OK," but praised Malaya's effort. Randy also thought that MK "delivered," but noted that Ben strayed from who he is as a performer.

Just as soon as Sam was added to the bottom three, he was removed when Ryan Seacrest declared him safe! That put Ben Briley and Majesty Rose in danger of elimination.

Jessica, Alex and Jena were declared safe and in a surprise twist, young hottie Sam Woolf joined Majesty and Ben in the bottom three! Tween girls across America were in tears.

In an instant Malaya and MK were declared safe. It came down to Ben and Majesty. Who would be in the bottom three and in danger of elimination? It turns out both performers were in the bottom three!

Harry noted that Majesty spreads herself "stylistically thin" with all the different types of songs she pulls from, but thought her performance was "strong." Keith urged Majesty to "ease into" the song a little more, while Jennifer noted that Majesty "can do anything!"

Majesty rose chose the current hit, "Let It Go" from the movie "Frozen" as her song from the cinema. Would Majesty be able to overcome the specter of the great Idina Menzel and put her own stamp on the song?

Jena, Dexter, Majesty and Alex were the next contestants called to the stage for results. All the contestants received constructive criticism from the judges, but what did America decide? Dexter, Majesty and Alex were safe, but Jena Irene was headed to the bottom three.

Harry liked how Majesty looked like she belongs on stage while Jennifer urged her to realize that she doesn't have to “always” go big. Keith said, not for the first time tonight, that we'd be seeing Majesty next week!

Batting cleanup for the night was Majesty Rose with Coldplay's “Fix You.” The preschool teacher really misses her students. She chose “Fix You” because the song really has a hopeful message. Majesty performance sure didn't need any fixing!

MK, Sam, Majesty and Dexter were the next contestants called to the stage to hear the results from the previous night. Randy noted that MK did "well" in her performance, but needs to get moving more. Randy praised Sam's voice, but noted that he needed to get his "performance to match his vocal power." He called Majesty's performance "fantastic," while noting that Dexter's effort wasn't his best performance. America's voted kept Sam, Majesty and Dexter safe. MK headed to the bottom three and was in danger of elimination. Keith noted that if MK was lucky enough to stay in the competition she need to work on her "emotional connection" to the song and the audience.

Majesty Rose took the stage next. The pre-school teacher picked Janelle Monae's “Tightrope” as her “this is me” song. Randy maintained that if Majesty could enunciate the words in the first verse she'd “ace it.”

Keith was wowed saying, “that was a killer song choice.” Jennifer loved Majesty's “individuality” and thought the song choice was “perfect” for the young artist. Harry was all praise as well saying, “That was terrific, Majesty.”

Jennifer Lopez announced Majesty Rose, whom we first met in Atlanta, as the first contestant to sing for America. This 21-year-old preschool teacher grew up singing in church, but gospel wasn't her genre. Now she's ready to break free and Randy's workshop helped her get there. She chose Pharrell Williams' "Happy" to perform and as she told vocal coach Michael Orland, she showed she can play the guitar and move on stage at the same time! Majesty brought a lot of energy to her performance and even had Jennifer Lopez clapping along.

"That's how you're supposed to come out here," exclaimed Jennifer after Majesty's performance. Harry felt "very fortunate" that Majesty set a fantastic tone for the competition. Keith praised her song choice and thought it showed her vocal range. When asked how she felt about being surrounded by fans Majesty announced,"I feel like we're all friends." Will Majesty's friends be able to get her to the next round in the competition? We'll have to wait until Thursday to find out.

Singing always seems so effortless for Majesty Rose York, so it was surprising to watch her forget the lyrics to "Stars" by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals. We've heard this song more on Idol than we have on the radio! The forgotten lyrics didn't change the judges' minds - they expect big things from her in the Top 30!

Over at the Dolby Theater, Hollywood Week was officially in session. Majesty Rose York kicked off the performances by letting her quiet voice shine with Feist's "1, 2, 3, 4." Still rocking the fanny pack, Samantha Calmes performed Bon Iver's "Flume." Doesn't that fanny pack interfere with her guitar? Worship Leader John Fox went with Needtobreathe's "The Outsiders." For Brandy Neelly's fourth time in Hollywood, she delivered a strong solo of Grace Potter's "Stars." Majesty, John, and Brandy moved on to the next round, but Samantha is packing her...waist purse.
