‘American Idol’ spoilers: Which 26 men made the Top 50 on season 16, what songs did they sing and who made it through?

American Idol” may be on a new network (ABC) but has the same host (Ryan Seacrest) and is following the same format that worked so well for 15 seasons on FOX. After five episodes devoted to the auditions, the show shifted to Hollywood where 169 hopefuls had to sing once again for the three judges: Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.

The first of the Hollywood week episodes, in which the contestants sang in groups of 10 and solo, aired on March 26 and April 1. Only 50 of these contestants were given the chance to be showcased in solo performances that determined the top 24. Those Top 50 took to the stage at the Exchange club in downtown Los Angeles on Feb. 8.

The episode featuring these performances will air on April 2. If you can’t wait for the results, scroll down to see the roster of 26 men who performed, the songs they sung and their eventual fate as revealed by The Idol Pad. The three judges put a dozen of them through to the Top 24. And eight of these men number among the 14 artists who will sing for America’s votes on the first live show on April 22. (Read about the women to make the cut.)
