American Idol 2015 – Season 14 – Who are the Top 9?
American Idol returned with 11 performers following the amazing save last week of Qaasim Middleton by the judges. The save was shocking as it was used veryearly on in the season. While the save has been used by the judges in previous seasons, it has never been used this early. As a result of having 11 contestants left, there were two eliminations on 80’s night of American Idol .
The 11 remaining contestants on American Idol 2015 were:
Before the contestants sang, David Hasselhoff brought out the results…..and sang a medley of hit songs. Boy George, a famous 80’s icon, was also there and joined the top eleven for “Karma Chameleon” by Culture Club.
The new process for American Idol is to announce those singers, in any order, who made it through. They then perform a song that will be voted on by America for the next week’s competition.
Below you will find the contestants who were voted through and the judges comments:
