Good job, America. We're apparently making the right decisions, at least when it comes to American Idol

So far, as the Top 10 have been whittled down to the Top 6, the judges haven't used their save on any of the eliminated contestants, and that's just because they think that so far, America is getting it right.

"It was one of those things where we didn't think that America got it wrong. They're paying attention," Lionel Richie told E! News after the Top 6 reveal. "And the thing about it is right now we want to save that one critical vote for something that we know is the potential killer. So you know, we're gonna hold it." 

From here on out, contestants will have to bring their all to win, and it would also help to realize where they are. Katy Perry used Wade Cota as an example. 

"We're still trying to convince him that he is in Top 6 now. Like, you could do this buddy. And once he starts to really believe that, he might show us something spectacular," she says. 

Richie thinks that after they get past these last two weeks of theme nights (Disney, Queen), things will change for the remaining singers, and Luke Bryan agrees, and says he's not even proficient in Disney songs. 

Hit play on the video above for more from the judges, and from eliminated contestants Alyssa Raghu and Walker Burroughs.
