American Idol Results March 17 2016


“American Idol” eliminated one contestant and revealed the Top 5 on Thursday’s show. Check out the results video below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, the judges were able to save contestants from elimination over the last two weeks, most recently using that power to keep Sonika Vaid in the competition. With this week’s edition, that power continued but was modified a little. Instead of having a Bottom Three, only two singers were in jeopardy, and only one could earn redemption.

And instead of having the final result determined at the end of the two-hour live broadcast, the moment of truth came about halfway through the show. The six remaining contestants all performed in what was considered the first round of competition. It was revealed, however, that Tristan McIntosh and Vaid were in the Bottom Two based on votes from last week’s performances.

At this point, the judges chose to save Vaid, and McIntosh was eliminated. For the rest of the show, the newly-formed Top 5, which also includes Trent Harmon, Dalton Rapattoni, La’Porsha Renae, and MacKenzie Bourg, competed in a second round of performances. Now votes cast for tonight’s performances will determine the Top 4 next week. Check out the video below!
