‘American Idol’ spoilers: Which Night 3 contestants make the Top 14 on season 17?

In advance of Sunday’s episode of “American Idol,” ABC has given us a sneak peek at the dozen contestants we will see audition for judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie. Among the 12 artists featured on the Night 3 episode are eight who ended up being given tickets to Hollywood and then competing there to make the Top 40. We’ve done some digging and can tell you which of these hopefuls made that first cut as well as the results of how they fared in the showcase round. Spoilers ahead.

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

In turn, those 20 singers were 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 will sing for America’s votes on the live shows beginning on April 14.

Below are the official bios of the Night 3 contestants, with special note made of those who advanced in the competition.
