Last night, "American Idol" narrowed the field to the Top 13, with at least one of the pack appearing to save himself with an 11th hour knockout performance.
Making up the Final 13 are Casey Abrams, Naima Adedapo, Lauren Alaina, James Durbin, Ashthon Jones, Stefano Langone, Jacob Lusk, Scotty McCreery, Paul McDonald, Thia Megia, Haley Reinhart, Karen Rodriquez, and Pia Toscano.
Langone, who appeared to be very close to elimination, saved himself with a rendition of "I Need You Know" that won over the judges and may have moved him from wild card to potential frontrunner heading into the home stretch.
