Monday evening american idol there was not only a competition between the contestants, there was also a kind of friendly competition between the judges. Tonight’s episode also brought performances and eliminations. We now have the Top 10 of this season.
A friendly competition took place between the judges. For the first time, the show introduced something new. Each contestant had three songs to choose from, one from each judge. But the Idol hopefuls weren’t sure which judge picked which song. At the end of their performance, it was revealed.
The judge whose songs were chosen the most became the champion. At the end of the night, there was a clear winner between judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. And that was…a drum roll, please. Katy Perry and Luke Bryan. It was a tie!
But the episode wasn’t all fun and games. We also had to say goodbye to a singer. So who advances in the competition and who went home?
