Another 10 contestants - the last of the women -- shrank to just five on the third night of the Sudden Death rounds in Las Vegas. Surveying the landscape, you can't fault the judges for failing to embrace eclecticism. They gave us … Zoanette Johnson: Despite what any of us watching at home think, this out-there Tulsa, Okla., 20-year-old has been a judge favorite almost from the moment she stepped in front of them at auditions and sang the national anthem.

The scene was a car wash fundraiser, replete with cheerleaders, jocks and a few nerds, the kind of thing you might see on high school dramas such as "90210" or "Friday Night Lights." But then, Mercedes (Amber Riley) threw a rock through a car's windshield, and the music began. Lithe cheerleaders stopped soaping tires and started dancing.
