Poor little Jenny from the block was in tears sending away over half of the remaning contestants (specifically one early season favorite) after they stumbled through some [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Beatles[/lastfm] tunes in Vegas, got axed (or moved on to L.A.) and whittled down to the last twenty-four.

Except we only got to see ten of the contestants that went through.

The remaining 61 contestants headed to Las Vegas’ Mirage Hotel & Casino and performed Beatles songs for the Cirque du Soleil’s LOVE show.

Interscope Records president Jimmy Iovine and producer [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Alex Da Kid[/lastfm] were there with other music industry elite who dispensed advice to those remaining.

Here were some of the best performances:

Kendra and Paul – “Blackbird”

Pia and Karen – “Can’t Buy Me Love”

Robbie, Aaron and Jordan – “Got To Get You Into My Life”
