The Top 6 vote-getters were announced Monday and advanced to the Top 10, while the remaining eight performed a second song for the judges' favor, in hopes of being one of the four artists they would save to round out the Top 10.
Well, America, the Top 10 has officially been decided for this season of American Idol. Over two hours, Ryan Seacrest revealed whether each contestant had been voted into the top 10 by America. During the very first live taping of American Idol Sunday night, San Antonio's Ada Vox made it into the top ten. The singer from Clarksville, Iowa was the first to know she was chosen for the Top 10, and she sang "Walk Like an Egyptian" decked out in a shimmering gold pantsuit. He also pointed out "The Danger Zone" where 8 seats were placed that represented those contestants that are in danger of being sent home. "My glam team and I want to give you the makeover of life for American Idol finals", Visage wrote. During the show, Catie sang "Havana" by Camila Cabello.
After Sunday's performance, drag queen Ada Vox wasn't voted to go to the next round by the audience; she got a golden opportunity to redeem herself. Brenns did not make it through to the Top 10 based on America's vote and sang "Demons" by Imagine Dragons to show his talent to the judges.
RuPaul showed love to Vox on Twitter, writing, "SHANTAY, you slay!" Dennis is the only one who had to impress the judges. Richie made a decision to save Jurnee while Perry and Bryan chose to save Michelle Sussett and Dennis Lorenzo respectively. You could tell from the judges' comments that there was no way they were putting him through.
Perry said, "Enough was enough and you put your foot down when it's real".
Even judge Luke Bryan, a country star, seemed befuddled by viewer tastes.
