‘American Idol’ 2019 Finale Schedule

American Idol 2019 Finale

ABC

American Idol 2019 is coming to the end of its season, with only a couple of episodes left, which means that the naming of the new American Idol is just around the corner. With the finale upon us, there is a small change-up in the schedule for the big event. Here are the remaining episodes and show times:

Sunday, May 12, 2019 – Top 5 Performances and Results
8 – 10:01 p.m. ET/5 – 7:01 p.m. PT
7 – 9:01 p.m. CT

Sunday, May 19, 2019 – Finale Part 1
8 – 11 p.m. ET/5 – 8 p.m. PT
7 – 10 p.m. CT

Last week, the top 4 were revealed, but the judges chose to use their only save to create a top 5. So, the top 5 contestants going into tonight’s show are Laci Kaye Booth, Laine Hardy, Wade Cota, Alejandro Aranda, and Madison Vandenburg. And, tonight’s episode pays tribute to the great Elton John. Billboard has stated that when it comes to tonight’s performances, “The first will be a song chosen by their in-house mentor Bobby Bones, while the second will be a song dedicated to their heroes in honor of Mother’s Day.”

Fans can vote for their favorite performers, as they sing live tonight, but only 3 of them will head into the season finale.

As for what’s in store with the finale, Good Housekeeping has reported that Queen frontman Adam Lambert will perform. He recently appeared on the show as a mentor and is a former Idol star. Last year’s winner, Maddie Poppe, who also appeared on the show this season, is said to appear, but there is reportedly some drama behind the scenes, according to Variety. A spokesperson for Idol spoke with Variety and said that, “It was not always a hard and fast rule to have the previous year’s winner at the finale.” Whatever the case, whether she is singing or not, Poppe is said to be making an appearance on the live episode.

If you would like to watch American Idol 2019 live but you do not have a cable subscription, there are still a variety of options.
