Some of the most fun on American Idol occurs in the audition room; wacky locals, delusional hopefuls and even some honest talents belt the song of their choice for a golden ticket forward. This Wednesday Idol will take contestants back to where their whirlwind journey began, inviting the top eight to sing the song they first performed in the audition room.

Thursday's elimination show will once again take a 30 minute format, with Chris Daughtery performing. Whoever receives the lowest amount of America's votes may find solace in the judge's remaining "save." With only three opportunities left for the save to be used, America's vote may not be the final word.

Tune in Wednesday 8/7c and Thursday 9/8c to watch the Remaining Contestants:

Sam Woolf

C.J Harris

Alex Preston

Malaya Watson

Dexter Roberts

Caleb Johnson

Jena Irene

Jessica Meuse
