In a video released by American Idol, Katy and Luke surprised HunterGirl, Leah and Noah by telling them the names of their finale duet partners. Katy revealed that she will be singing with Leah, explaining that she saw a video of Leah at about 9 years old singing Katy's song "Firework." Leah immediately burst into laughter about the video. She was then thrilled when Katy said, "How powerful would that be if we sang that together on the finale?" As Katy explained, "I only save that song for inaugural events and Leah Marlene." Leah was so excited, and she and Katy hugged each other.

Luke then placed an arm around HunterGirl and told her that they will be performing "I Told You So" by Randy Travis and Carrie Underwood at the finale.
