That leaves Devin Velez and Johnny Keyser both hoping for the last spot. Ryan's backstage with the two of them. Johnny's a lot more articulate and together than Devin is, which is good because that's a nice way to be remembered going out. After clips of both of them performing, they stand on stage together as Nicki gives a speech bucking them both up before telling Johnny that he's done, again, meaning Devin's still in it. So that's another ten whittled down to five -- Curtis, Elijah, Charlie, Devin and Paul. And we only have to do this twice more next week.
