American Idol's Top 8 Revealed Live — Did Katy Perry Save the Right Singer?

American Idol Top 8 Results Katy Save

American Idol handed the aux cord over to the judges on Monday, letting them decide which songs the Top 10 would sing live for viewers’ votes — and they made some choices.

Colin Stough, Haven Madison, Iam Tongi, Marybeth Byrd, Megan Danielle, Oliver Steele, Tyson Venegas, Warren Peay, Wé Ani and Zachariah Smith returned to the Idol stage less than 24 hours after bidding farewell to Lucy Love and Nutsa.

And they all had one question on their minds: Which of them would go home next? That answer played out in Idol‘s usual dramatic fashion over the course of the two-hour broadcast, which also included a performance by Season 19 winner Chayce Beckham.

In addition to the competition at hand, Ryan Seacrest also kept track of how many judges had their songs chosen by one of the contestants. And unlike on Whose Line Is It Anyway, these points mattered big-time. Monday’s winner, Katy Perry, got to save one of this week’s bottom three singers — and we know you’re going to have thoughts about who she picked.

Read on for a complete breakdown of Monday’s results — the eight singers declared safe, the two whose Idol journeys reached an abrupt end, and the lucky recipient of Perry’s save. When you’re finished, drop a comment with your thoughts on Monday’s results overall.
