American Idol 2011 Top 24 Elimination Results

Tonight on American Idol 2011 we’ll find out which five guys and five girls earned enough of your votes to become finalists and which fourteen singers will return next week for one final chance at survival. The stakes are high tonight!

Right off the bat, the FOX announcer says that tonight we’ll get this season’s Top 12. So there’s still a lot of uncertainty on where we’ll end up in two hours. It’ll either be the Top 12 or we’ll get the Top 10 + a few more Wild Cards next week.

More details from Randy. After the Top 10 results are revealed the judges will pick who they want to compete in a sing-off for the 3 Wild Card spots. So now we know there will be a Top 13 this season. Ryan promises massive drama tonight!

You can pick up Jennifer Lopez‘s new single On The Floor on iTunes right now.

Join us in the Idol Chat room as we wait for Seacrest to deliver the big results!
