It’s up to the voters now.
ABC’s “American Idol” finished its two-night Top 24 performances Monday, with the remaining 12 singers taking the Los Angeles stage for solos and duets with Jewel, Jason Aldean, Josh Groban and other music stars.
Following Sunday’s example, each contestant performed in front of a small, mask-wearing studio audience, along with “Idol” judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie.
Viewers, who have until Tuesday at 6 a.m. EDT to cast their votes, will decide which eight of Monday’s singers will advance to the Top 16, with results announced on Sunday’s show (8 EDT/PDT). Fans can vote at americanidol.com/vote, the “American Idol” app or via text message.
