SPOILER ahead! To find out who’s leaving on Idol — and, in a new twist, the official ranking of the rest of the Top 9 — read on.

‘American Idol’ results for Thursday, March 14, 2013:

Eliminated: Curtis Finch, Jr.

Also in the bottom two: Devin Velez

Borrowing a note from The X Factor, Idol is now revealing the official ranking of contestants below the top 3. So here are those results, too:

Top Three (in no particular order): Angie Miller, Kree Harrison, Candice Glover (pictured)

4th place: Lazaro Arbos

5th place: Amber Holcomb

6th place: Janelle Arthur

7th place: Burnell Taylor

8th place: Paul Jolley

The judges will get one save this season, and it has to be unanimous. Nicki Minaj threatened to walk away from the judges’ table in protest of Curtis having to sing his survival song, “I Believe I Can Fly.” (It was pitchy, Dawg!) She later complained to Ryan Seacrest, “I think we really needed an extra minute to discuss it.”

Meanwhile, last week’s runner-up girl and the runner-up guy — Aubrey Cleland and Charlie Askew — competed in a sing-off to see who will make this summer’s American Idol tour.

Stay tuned for my full recap later on, but discuss tonight’s results here!

And do you like the new format? Ryan sure is getting a full-body workout!
