American Idol results revealed the Top 24 contestants as the Showcase Round concluded with full house performances and gave us the American Idol 2016 Top 24 who will compete for the final season 15 title.
These results were initially leaked as spoilers thanks to TIP and now FOX has made them official with the Final Judgment “Green Mile” episode this week.
Coming off the Top 51 results we knew who was competing in the excellent Showcase Round which just aired this week at the Dolby Theatre where Idol judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr. had the difficult choice of cutting more than half of these singers from the competition.
Unlike past seasons, there’s no chance of return for the eliminated singers and the loss will weigh even heavier than other years. For the rest of them though, they are now one step closer to achieving their dream and becoming the next and final American Idol.
Update: Elimination results reveal who was cut from the Top 24 to join the Season 15’s Top 14 list of singers.

how many of them will still be around five years from now?????????
sonika and emily brooke
AI can only hope they can find a winner nearly as good as the Voice’s Jordan Smith. He overtook Adele’s Hello with the Freddie Mercury song on iTunes this week. My prediction for next Monday: Jordan sings Hello and overtakes Adele on iTunes with her own song. Twitter feeds: better than the original!
Jordan doesn’t have artistry and good luck to his recording history… If your looking for a similar contestant to Jordan it would be Jordan Sasser
So he’s fat (like Adele) but a man can get away with it, but Adele hasn’t done too bad with her blubber and F bomb profanity. LOL
Note: young artists trying to emulate already “MADE IT” singers like Adele or for that matter Jlo, hear them use profanity and think it’s cute and do the same “BEFORE THEY MAKE IT” thus somewhat hindering their chances to be the same singing star.
Note: Adele has a NBC show directly after the Monday Voice, so may not hear Jordan do Adele’s Hello.
I think i saw jordan smith auditioned in front of clay aiken in episode 1 and dont get pass through to the judges. Better see it to clarify.
Seems like they cut all the best singers. Not sure what Idol is up to this season.
YAAAAAAAAAAAASSSS QUEEN OLIVIA YAAAASS JTNJFJVFNJFV OH MY GAAAAWWWWDD
Why is it only one black boy tho…
Because the rest weren’t good enough
What an interesting curation of female contestants. Huge amount of talent and creative edge on that side. How much recruiting was involved, I wonder? The other side is almost entirely boring WGW, with only a couple of interesting exceptions. AI wants its final winner to be a woman. Can’t wait! I like Amelia, Dalton, Jenn, and Jeneve.
sonika and emily brookie might be the only ones that would even make the radio
My top 3 guys are Dalton, Mackenzie, and Thomas. My girls are Jenn, Olivia, and Emily.
I can see that. I’m digging Mannie, Mackenzie and Lee for boys and Stepany, Shelbie and Gianna for girls, but truthfully all of them are decent.
I really like Dalton, too.
Does any one remember Sonika Vaid on the voice? She didn’t make it then and she wont make it now!
I hope that Amelia Eisenhauser is eliminated quickly. She is very entitled; she’s had several interviews at a radio station in my town and to hear her and her mother talk, she was “recruited” by AI and she has made comments such as she can’t say how far she gets but she does pretty good and that she and her family, who moved to Nashville to expand their musical careers, “Yeah, we’re kinda a big thing” when people talk about how she’s won local singing contests, etc. What she describes as quirky is coming across as arrogance, in *my* opinion. I just don’t care for her.
Shelbie Z is walking the fine line between confidence and cockiness, too, in my opinion.
Tristan McIntosh, right now, is where my votes will be going.
