NEW YORK — We found out one by one who had made it into the Top 16 contestants, and then each competitor immediately gave a performance in an effort to move up into the Top 10.
As soon as the show was over, fans immediately began casting their ballots for the Top 10. The polls closed at 6:00 a.m. Eastern Time (3:00 a.m. Pacific Time).
On Monday night’s episode of American Idol, which contestants are moving on to the next round will be revealed during a live broadcast.
Every performance that took place on Sunday night is as follows:
3. Alyssa Wray
Alyssa Wray was the first competitor to earn a spot in the Top 16 of the competition. She began the night by performing Roberta Flack’s “Killing Me Softly,” and the judges were blown away by how she made the song her own.
Katy Perry referred to you as an artist for the first time, stating that she saw your work for the first time today.
8. Graham DeFranco
Graham DeFranco, who is originally from Texas, gave the timeless song “That’s Life” a fresh new sound.
Lionel Ritchie remarked, “You had the swag, you had the attitude, but I’m loving the fact that you are enjoying this journey.” (You had the swag, you had the attitude.)
12. Grace Kinstler
College student Grace Kinstler is considered a front-runner for the award this year, and she took another step in that direction with a fantastic performance of “Elastic Heart” by Sia. The song was originally performed by Sia.
She shared with Ryan Seacrest her feelings of relief at having made it to the next round, saying, “I was extremely terrified coming into tonight so I’m just really relieved.”
1. Alyssa Sophia Alanis
19-year-old For the purpose of showcasing her voice, Alanis Sophia chose “The Story” by Brandi Carlile, which is in the higher register.
On the most recent episode of American Idol, judge Lionel Ritchie remarked, “We just watched a star exploding on the stage.”
11. Willie Spence
Willie Spence gave an outstanding version of Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain,” which was so good that it was nearly heavenly.
“Every note reflected deep consideration. The instant that you peered directly into the lens of my camera. the instant that you removed your hand from the microphone. You were possessed in a manner that was like to that of God, “According to Katy Perry.
Deshawn Goncalves comes in seventh.
Deshawn Goncalves, a student at an Ohio college, sat down at the piano, began with a chilly start, and then moved away from the instrument for a powerful close.
Luke Bryan remarked that “the entire time I’m watching you, I’m saying that this is his best performance.”
4. Wyatt Pike
The young man from Utah, who is only 20 years old, is one of the more genuine singers in this group, and he contributed his own distinctive sound to the song “Use Somebody” by Kings of Leon.
2. Cassandra Coleman
Cassandra Coleman, who manages a coffee shop, is living her ambition despite the fact that she almost gave up on it when she was a teenager after giving a poor performance. She enchanted the audience with her performance of “Wicked Game,” but it was clear that the judges were hoping for considerably more.
22. Caleb Kennedy
This young country singer may have the appearance of a stone, but his voice is as firm as a rock, as seen in his performance of “Midnight Train to Memphis.”
Colin Jamieson, number 19
Former boy band jammer Tears for Fears’s “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” was the song that Colin Jamieson used in an attempt to take control of the stage.
Casey Bishop, numbered 24
Even though this Florida high school sophomore has never performed in front of an audience before, she consistently bombs the performance. Every one of the three judges was blown away by Casey Bishop’s rendition of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun.”
Katy Perry has been quoted as saying, “You are dangerous and I like that.”
14. Madison Watkins
The singer, who is originally from Arkansas and is now 25 years old, showcased her range with a sophisticated performance of “Gravity.”
Luke Bryan praised the singer, saying, “That was a flawless vocal.”
The ray of sunshine contained within the pocket continues to shine brightly. The “Searching for a Feeling” performance that wedding singer Beane gave at the reception pushed things to an entirely new level.
Katy Perry remarked that it was incredible to see the many dazzling incarnations of the Beane character.
23. Hunter Metts
Another performer who is becoming better with each week is Hunter Metts, who sang “Skinny Love” for his top 16 song performance.
21. Ava August
Ava August continues to amaze, despite the fact that at age 15, she is the youngest participant still performing in this season.
Lionel Ritchie expressed his admiration for the students by saying, “This is one of the most spectacular classes ever had, and for you to break through like this, I’m very, very proud of you.”
The number 18, Chayce Beckham
Chayce Beckham, who is from Apple Valley, California, took the sixteenth and final slot in the top 16. He decided to perform Bob Marley’s “Waiting in Vain” while sitting on a stool and playing the guitar for a stripped-down but powerful version of the performance.
Katy claims that Chayce “checks all the boxes,” and Luke is interested in receiving an email with tips on how to be cool.
This adventure is over for eight of the competitors, but their ambition will continue to be fulfilled. Alana, Anilee List, Andrea Valles, Cecil Ray, Hannah Everhart, Jason Warrior, Liahona, and Mary Jo Young are among those who have decided to part ways.
