American Idol 2015 Top 24 Revealed – Season 14 – Spoilers
American Idol 2015 continued the long process of vetting through thousands of wanna be singers, hoping to make it to Hollywood and beyond. Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. have listened, laughed and cried with too many contestants to count. The judges gave more than 200 contestants golden tickets to Hollywood and Hollywood Week took place on American Idol over the last four episodes. The judges evaluated and eliminated contestants from Hollywood Week as we head toward the top 24 and when the real fun begins.
When Hollywood Week is over, 48 singers remain. With American Idol trying to raise the ratings and bring in more viewers, we saw a twist on Wednesday’s episode. Each artist took the stage at the House of Blues in Los Angeles for a performance in front of a live audience. Following their performance, the judges decided who made the cut and let each contestant know whether they made it into the Top 24. The contestants were going from 48 to 24 on American Idol based on their performance at the House of Blues.
