Three more singers were eliminated on Sunday’s American Idol, which welcomed back Season 16 finalist Gabby Barrett to mentor the show’s rapidly shallowing pool of contestants.
Idol also switched up its run of show this week: Instead of performing just seconds after they’d gotten their results from host Ryan Seacrest, all 14 contestants sang for America’s votes first this time, and they learned their fates at the very end of the broadcast.
The pressure was especially high for the four singers saved from elimination by the judges last week. Allegra Miles, Jay, Mike Parker and Tristen Gressett didn’t just have to earn the viewers’ votes — they also had to win them back.
Were they successful? And what of the other contestants who took the stage this week? Read on for a complete breakdown of the just-announced Top 11, for which we’ll add videos when they become available, then drop a comment with your thoughts: Were the right three singers booted from the competition?
