The remaining 7 contestants in American Idol performed Wednesday on the shows' "Now and Then" themed night. 

Joshua Ledet put the judges on their feet Wednesday night with his performance of "I Believe" by Fantasia.

"Hopefully America shows up for you tonight cause you are truly one of the most gifted singers i think we've ever met on the show," Randy Jackson said.

Last week, Ledet was on the bottom three alongside Jessica Sanchez and Elise Testone.

Another great performance last night was delivered by Skylar Laine who wowed the judges (and the audience) with a country-rock version of Lady Gaga's "Born this Way."

"'You have no problem connecting with people. Every time you're on stage it's a party. It's the Skylar Laine Rock and Roll Country Party"Jackson told her.

Sanchez, who was saved to remain in the competition last Thursday, was among the top performers last night with a rendition of Alicia Keys' "Fallin." In fact the judges were 'fallin' for her.

"I'm so glad you're here with us. I'm so glad we had a save and I'm so glad we used it on you,' judge Jennifer Lopez said.

One contestant will be eliminated from the show tonight.
