“American Idol” is just one show away from finalizing the Top 14 who will get to sing on the first live show of season 16 on April 22. On Sunday (April 15), the second group from the Top 24 took to the stage to sing solos for judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. On Monday (April 16), they will partner with celebrities on duets that will decide their fate.
The 12 singers in Group 2 are: Ron Bultongez, Marcio Donaldson, Amelia Harris, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Garrett Jacobs, Jurnee Siani, Mara Justine, Shannon O’Hara, Effie Passero, Alyssa Raghunandan, Maddie Poppe and Ada Vox.
These performances were taped weeks ago and we have discovered the songs that you’ll see them sing on Monday and the stars that will join them. Below, the list of the dozen artists in contention for the seven slots remaining in the Top 14 and those celebrity duets (as well as the ones they sung Sunday).
On April 8 and April 9, the first group of 12 singers performed. The lucky seven to make the grade with were: Gabby Barrett, Jonny Brenns, Cade Foehner, Dennis Lorenzo, Michelle Sussett, Catie Turner and Michael J. Woodard. (Of the five singers who didn’t make the cut, be sure to vote in our poll to let us know who YOU think was robbed.)
