‘American Idol’ spoilers: Which 12 men and 12 women made the Top 24 on season 16?

The revival of “American Idol” on ABC is following the same format as did on FOX for 15 seasons. On the April 2 episode, host Ryan Seacrest will reveal the Top 24 contestants, who will then fight it out over four episodes for a place in the live shows that start on April 22. These two dozen hopefuls were culled from the Top 50 that were revealed on the April 1 episode. To cut this number by more than half, the three judges — Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie — had the contestants sing again.

The Top 50, which was made up of 26 men and 24 women, took to the stage at the Exchange club in downtown Los Angeles on Feb. 8. If you can’t wait till Monday night to learn the results, scroll down to see the names of the 12 men and 12 women that made it through to the Top 24 as well as the songs they sung that won over the judges as revealed in spoilers by The Idol Pad. We’ve also included the names of the 26 contestants that didn’t make the cut and their songs that weren’t music to the ears of the judges.
