UPDATE: And, the contestants going through to the top 8 are … Dalton, Lee, Sonika, MacKenzie, La’Porsha, Trent, Tristan and Avalon.
On tonight’s episode of American Idol, the top 10 contestants will be narrowed down to the top 8, who will all perform for America. As Idol 2016 shifts its schedule to one night a week, the results and performances fit into one two-hour-long episode each Thursday. With a double elimination tonight, emotions are running high as the journey must end for two favorites.
Yesterday, we took a poll, asking our readers to choose their favorite contestant so that we could come up with an accurate prediction of who may be going home tonight. Have a look at the results below.
So, if the rest of America feels the same way our readers do, it looks like Lee Jean and Gianna Isabella may be voted off the show.
TV Line has posted the song choices for tonight’s prepared performances. Here is the reported performance list:
La’Porsha Renae — Beyoncé’s “Halo”
MacKenzie Bourg — Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)”
Tristan McIntosh — Vince Gill’s “Go Rest High on That Mountain”
Trent Harmon — Percy Sledge’s “When A Man Loves A Woman”
Olivia Rox — Pink’s “Trouble”
Gianna Isabella — Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You”
Sonika Vaid — Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone”
Dalton Rapattoni — Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive”
