The top 20 on season 17 of “American Idol” will be revealed at the end of a three-hour edition of the reality series on March 31. These contenders will be culled from the 40 contestants who survived Hollywood Week. If you don’t want to sit through the longest show in the history of the franchise, then keep reading as we’ve got all the details as to who made the cut. Spoilers ahead.
The Top 40 auditioned for the three judges — Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie — at the end of January against the backdrop of Disney’s Aulani Resort in Honolulu, Hawaii. We’ve done some digging and can let you in on the results, including the names of the 9 women and 11 men to make the grade and the titles of the tracks that they sang.
The score of singers still standing at this stage of the competition had to sing twice more (solo, celebrity duet) to secure a place in the T0p 14 who will feature on the live shows that start on April 14.
