Sure... Quentin Tarantino can direct a film, but can he direct the singers competing on American Idol?
On Tuesday night, he proved he can.
Tarantino --who sat in as a guest judge on Idol five years ago --came back to the show to mentor the remaining seven singers on a night when all the songs were associated with the movies.
The eccentric Oscar winning director, whose films include Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill, has said he's a big fan of Idol.
Meanwhile, the show announced that, due to episodes running too long, each performer would only receive feedback from two of the four judges.
"We're working in teams tonight, so we make it in on time," host Ryan Seacrest said of the adjustments.
The show had to change its judging format, Simon Cowell joked, because Paula Abdul and Kara Dioguardi talked too much last week.
