‘American Idol’ spoilers: Which Night 2 contestants make the Top 40 on season 17?

ABC has released a sneak peek at the 12 contestants who will be showcased on Night 2 of “American Idol.” Among these dozen artists who are featured on the March 6 episode are several who were given tickets to Hollywood where they competed to make the Top 40. We’ve done some digging and can tell you which of these talents made the cut as well as the results of how they fared in the showcase round. Spoilers ahead.

The Top 40 were flown to Hawaii at the end of January and stayed at the Aulani Resort. That luxury hotel in Honolulu is owned by Disney as is ABC, the new network for “American Idol.” Each of these would-winners of season 17 sang once again for judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie. Only 20 of them were put through to the next round. This episode will air on March 31.

That score was split into two groups. Each had to sing a solo and do a duet with a celebrity act. Those episodes will air in the first half of April. The resulting Top 14 is set to compete for America’s votes on the live shows beginning on April 14.

Below are the official bios of the Night 2 contestants, with special note made of those who advanced in the competition.
