Taking the stage Thursday night as a musical guest was Idol judge Jennifer Lopez, who performed On the Floor with Pitbull. She also leaked a sneak peek at her new music video I'm Into You featuring Lil Wayne.

The bottom two were Jacob and Lauren.  While they waited for host Ryan Seacrest to give them the verdict, the pretty teen cried.  The eliminated Idol contender turned out to be Jacob Lusk.

The Top 4 will compete next week, and Steven Tyler is slated to perform Feels So Good.
