Urkel's theme song?! That's how one "American Idol" season 11 contestant won his golden ticket to Hollywood on Thursday night's episode.

Reed Grimm, a 26-year-old Wisconsin man, has been performing with his family band since he was two-years-old. So, out of all the songs he must have learned in more than two decades of performing, the obvious choice for him was clearly … the "Family Matters" theme song, with a big dose of scattin'.

Also during the Pittsburgh auditions, the judges rejected endearing, promising 19-year-old West Virginia coal miner Shane Bruce, who nervously sang "Hallelujah," but were wowed by 15-year-old Ohioan Eben Frankowitz, whose stage mom advised him on the road trip to the tryouts, "Let everybody else do their thing -- you do Eben's thing." Eben's thing: giving a passable performance of "Ain't No Sunshine," but looking like Justin Bieber. He made it through to Hollywood.

And the final audition of the evening: 24-year-old former girl group singer-turned-addict-turned-waitress Hallie Day. The Baltimore native told the judges she became and addict and tried to commit suicide after a stint in New York at 15 with a girl band didn't work out. Her audition song: "I Will Survive." And she did, earning a ticket to the next round in Hollywood.
