Latoya London. Simon said that he could tell by watching Latoya that she knew she had that confidence in her to win and be the next idol winner.
Mandy. By far this was John's best performance of the competition. The judges thought that he fell short, but the audience did not agree with them. He seemed the most comfortable on stage during this performance.
Quentin Tarantino. Quentin was very enthusiastic about being on the show because he is such a big fan. He seems to be the only judge so far this season that can give Simon a run for his money.
Jon Peter Lewis. Jon Peter Lewis best know as the pen salesman became the fifth victim of season three.
Jon Peter, John, and Diana. Diana was sent back to safety, leaving Jon Peter and John in the bottom two for the evening.

Jacket. They all really liked his choice of wardrobe for the evening. It was a shiny blue jacket.
Fantasia Barrino. Fantasia said in the fourth episode that this was the best time in her life aside from the time that she had her daughter, Zion.
|What word did Simon use to describe the performance of John Stevens' rendition of "Crocodile Rock"?||"American Idol" Season 3
Excruciating. Simon said it was absolutely excruciating to watch. I guess that the audience didn't agree with him on this because he wasn't even sent to the bottom three following that performance.
Camile. Camile Velasco and fellow Hawaiian, Jasmine Trias, were in the bottom two for the evening. Camile ultimately became the 4th contestant voted out of the competition.

|In the third episode of the big top twelve, what did Simon say looked like was sitting on top of Latoya London's head?||"American Idol" Season 3
a cat. I believe he said that her hair addition looked like a dead cat. He thought, along with Randy, that it was a terrible choice for her to get extensions to her extremely short hair.
Matthew Rogers. Matthew Rogers is a 25 year old former college football player. He did a terrible rendition of Lonestar's "Amazed".
|Usually, only one celebrity guest judge appears per show. One night, during season three, there were two guest judges (a husband and wife pair). On what night were there two guest judges?||"American Idols" Dreaming of Stardom
Motown. Ashford and Simpson did an awesome job that night. With time constraints, Ashford gave the first comment, then Simpson gave the comments for the next contestant. Let us all hope "American Idol" will be back for a fourth season.
|The ages of the contestants vary from 16-25. LaToya and Matt are both 25, with Diana and John, both 16. The rest fall in between. What is the average age of the final 12, combined?||"American Idols" Dreaming of Stardom
20. This is the youngest top 12, on average in the history of "American Idol", except of course, "American Juniors".
|Jon Peter Lewis, formally known as JPL, was voted out of the competition on movie night. The problem could have been that he got too confident with his signature dancing moves, that he forgot about song choice. He took on the challenges of one amazing artist. Which artist's song did he sing?||"American Idols" Dreaming of Stardom
Elvis. The judges thought that it was a bad song choice because Elvis is so hard to sing.
|Simon has produced many shows, including the original "Pop Idol" in UK, and "American Idol". He also brought the show "Cupid" to life. Did Simon Cowell create both the "WB Superstar", and "The X-Factor"?||"American Idols" Dreaming of Stardom
No. Simon has produced, "Cupid", another reality dating show, as well as a new show coming to British television called "The X-Factor". This show will audition all age groups, from 16-30. The name comes from Cowell's term, "you just don't have it." Simon calls "it" the X-factor.
Hawaii. When Camile was voted off, she encouraged Jasmine to represent Hawaii.
