American Idol XIV


“American Idol” finally revealed the Top 12 of season 14 on Wednesday’s show. See the full list here!

As Gossip Cop reported, the Top 16 contestants (eight male, eight female) all performed at the Fillmore in Detroit last week in hopes of winning America’s votes. Host Ryan Seacrest explained on Wednesday’s new show that the top 10 vote-getters would be welcomed into the Top 12, with the judges selecting the final two contestants as wild cards.

During the broadcast, Seacrest revealed who was safe throughout the show, calling people up one by one for new performances. That signified he or she was safe, and put the singer up for votes once more, the results of which will be revealed on Thursday.

So, how did things shake out? Well, the four contestants who did not receive enough votes or get selected as wild cards and were therefore eliminated are: Adam Ezegalien, former “Voice” contestant Mark Andrew, Loren Lott, and Alexis Gomez.

The Top 12 are: Sarina-Joi Crowe, Rayvon Owen, Daniel Seavey, Maddie Walker, Tyanna Jones, Nick Fradiani, Jax, Qassim Middleton, Clark Beckham, and Joey Cook, along with wild cards Quentin Alexander and Adana Duru.

Unfortunately, though, the Top 12 won’t be the Top 12 for long. On Thursday’s episode, one of them will be eliminated based on the votes for tonight’s performances. Then the new Top 11 will all hit the stage once more, with another elimination next Thursday revealing the Top 10 with another round of new performances.
