The Monday April 15 episode of the ABC revival of “American Idol” saw the Top 14 reduced to the Top 10. Seven of the singers continuing on in the show — Alejandro Aranda, Laci Kaye Booth, Walker Burroughs, Wade Cota, Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon, Laine Hardy and Madison VanDenburg — learnt that they numbered among America’s favorites and earned places in the Top 10 based on their performances on Sunday’s show.
The other seven contestants were told by host Ryan Seacrest that the judges — Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie — would choose just three of them to move forward in the competition based on the songs that they sung on Monday’s show. The trio of talent that the panel put through to the Top 10 were: Dimitrius Graham, Alyssa Raghu and Uche.
That meant elimination for Evelyn Cormier, Ashley Hess, Eddie Island and Riley Thompson. Which of these four do you think was robbed of a place in the Top 10? Take a look at the list of songs they’ve sung throughout the competition and then cast your ballot for the artist you will miss most as season 17 of “American Idol” moves on to the Top 10 on April 21.
