Judges use their powers to save Matt Giraud

It was an American Idol first!  The judges used their one-time saving power to give Matt Giraud a second chance at stardom.

The crowd went wild after hearing the decision that even brought Matt to tears.  Simon told Matt he would likely not win the competition, but they were going to give him another chance:  "Well, we said we would use it at the time we thought was the right time.  It was the only time from the audience that you actually felt they cared. I mean look, he did his best at the end."

Now that the one-time save has been used, two contestants will be sent home next week.  Tune in Tuesday starting at eight as the Idol stage goes disco.
