'American Idol' Recap: Enrique Iglesias Performs, J.Lo Cries and Scotty McCreery Advances

Last night's American Idol results show should've been called 'Latin Night!'
Enrique Iglesias stopped by the show last night to perform a mash-up of "Dirty Dancer" and his hit single, "I Like It" (both from his 2010 album Euphoria). Surrounded by green laser lights, and inflatable white balls (watch the performance below), Enrique got really into the performance during the "I Like It" part, jumping up and down with the hundreds of female fans right in front of him in the crowd.
Later in the show, it was time for host Ryan Seacrest to reveal which of the four contestants would be going on to the final three next week, and we were thrilled to see that part Puerto Rican country singer Scotty McCreery edged out fellow contestant James Durbin to become the only guy left standing in the competition. But as relieved as Scotty looked to find out he was sticking around, another boricua, Jennifer Lopez, looked sad about the news that James was headed home, and even shed a few tears. So much drama! Shouldn't every night on Idol be Latin night?
