CJ, Jena, Spencer, Bria and Kristen were all vying for a spot, but the judges could only pick three. The judges only had moments to announce their decisions and quickly settled on Jena Irene, Kristen O'Connor and CJ Harris. In an instant Spencer Lloyd's and Bria Anai's dreams were dashed.

"The next person to sing for their life, not to make it dramatic or anything, is Spencer Lloyd," Jennifer announced. How could it be any less dramatic? Spencer took the stage performing his original song "Ordinary Girl," which wasn't a huge hit with the judges back during Hollywood Week. It wasn't a big hit with them this time around, either. Jennifer said that while she wanted to give him a chance, she wasn't "sure that's what we wanted America to see in this moment."

Keith criticized Spencer's song choice and thought this showing wasn't his best vocal. Jennifer praised Spencer's stage presence and thought he was a “star.” Harsh Harry struck again. “Stick to what you know. This was not good.” This earned Harry another strong set of boos from the enamored audience. This might be a trend for the season.

Keith announced that the final spot of the night would go to Spencer Lloyd who impressed the judges during Hollywood Week. Spencer wanted to move away from performing with his guitar, but Randy urged him to “stick with it” and “ride the horse that brought you here.” Adam Lambert felt differently, saying that Spencer came alive without it. In the end Spencer chose to perform "Love Don't Die" by The Fray sans guitar. His performance was solid, but his guitar couldn't have made the ladies in the audience love him any more.

"Say Something" really worked for Spencer Lloyd's first Hollywood solo, but the judges weren't as in love with his final solo - an original song on the guitar. That didn't keep him from making the Top 15 guys.

In addition to that last two groups of ladies, we learned that Brandy Neelly, Emily Piriz, and Kenzie Hall were moving on in the competition. It was looking good for the ladies. Speaking of looking good, here's Spencer Lloyd. Spencer knew his group song - Gavin DeGraw's "Best I Ever Had" - and didn't want to rehearse with group members Alyssa Siebken and Megan Miller. When the group took the stage, there were some forgotten lyrics from the girls, and their voices sounded rough. It was the end of the road for Alyssa, but Spencer and Megan were continuing on. Did she take a defeated selfie? Also going home were Madisen Walker, Keith London, Austin Precario, Stephanie Petronelli, and Adam Roth.

Spencer Lloyd took his time as he performed "Say Something" on the keyboard, and he sounded even stronger in Hollywood than he did during his initial audition. The judges were impressed with his song choice and said it shows that he knows who he is as an artist. "Spencer Lloyd, you're here to stay," Jennifer Lopez announced. Amen!
