Top 20 Revealed In Fox’s ‘American Idol’ On Thursday Night, Highlight Hollywood News

Fox’s American Idol has been on the air for the past 12 seasons. And some seasons seem more exciting than others.  Maybe this season got a slow start, but it’s making its stride known a bit more each week.    The show began with the 10 contestants rising from the floor, Hunger Games-style. Five of them will continue, while five of them met their end. Find out who made it through to the next round … Spoiler Alert! The final picks for the Top 20 follow:Cortez Shaw, Burnell Taylor,  Lazaro Arbos,  Nick Boddington and Vincent Powell. 

 

And yes, it was guys’ night, but finalist Zoanette Johnson made a cameo when she stood up and cheered Powell’s performance, prompting host Ryan Seacrest to run over with a microphone. (For a brief moment, It felt like a ’90s-era episode of Ricki Lake, which is actually a very good thing.)  “Get it, Papa Smurf,” Johnson screamed. “You go get it.”

Tonight’s finalists will join Charlie Askew, Curtis Finch Jr., Paul Jolley, Elijah Liu and Devin Velez – and 10 female finalists – to sing for America’s votes next week.
