We’re getting a lot more episodes of”American Idol” season 19 than we thought. You will find five episodes dedicated to the highs (and lows) of these auditions in front of judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richie. They gave Golden Tickets to upwards of 150 contenders to become”American Idol” season 19 winners.
They got them to Tinseltown, in which they took place in Hollywood Week last December. They sang solo songs spanning six Genres: Country, Indie Folk, Pop, R&B, Rock, and Soul. Subsequently, the judges paired them up to perform duets.
Only 64 of them moved on to the brand new Showstoppers round of the competition, where they once again had to sing for survival. The judges delivered their Final Judgment at the conclusion of their shows that aired on March 28 and March 29.
This Top 24 will perform both solos and with celebrity spouses on pre-taped reveals that air on April 4 and April 5. America will have to vote to choose the Top 16 that will perform live on April 11. The top 10 contenders in the overnight vote are going to be revealed on April 12. The remaining two slots in the Top 12 will probably be determined by a different public vote after the six remaining contestants do this night.
The Top 12 will sing live on Sunday, April 18 with the Top 10 reveal on Monday, April 19. There will not be some episodes of”American Idol” the following week, because of the Oscars and a”Sesame Street” special.
The month of May is going to be filled with lots of live shows. Every Sunday and Monday will see the competition narrow down. We expect the fan-favorite Disney Nights will return on May 2 and May 3. The live”American Idol” season 4 finale on ABC is slated for Sunday, May 23.
