American Idol Results: Top 50 Revealed

Maddie Poppe sings on American Idol 2018

Last night on American Idol 2018, we saw some of our favorites get cut during the grueling Hollywood Week rounds. The group round was particularly brutal, but the solo performances delivered any harder challenges from many of the Hopefuls.

By the end of the show, the Hopefuls had been split into three groups with one of them being sent home just short of a major milestone. The decisions are in and we now officially know the Top 50.

The group below will perform in the Showcase round tonight and then will be cut down to the Top 24. Can’t wait? We’ve got the Top 24 spoilers and even the Top 14 results!

So that’s 24 females and 26 males. And I’m sure, like me, some of your favorites are missing from the list. The one that really sticks out to me is Brandon Elder. His audition was my favorite and I cannot believe they didn’t keep him in the competition. At any rate, I’m really disappointed. Check out his original audition again below.

I was also disappointed to see David Francisco go home. His story was so touching and his initial audition nearly had me in tears. His Hollywood Week performance wasn’t the greatest, but I was still a fan and would have loved to see him move on to the next round.

Rissa Watson was another one that really hurt to see go. I thought her audition during week one, was one of the best of the season. But apparently her Hollywood Week experience didn’t have the same kind of effect on the judges.

Who were you disappointed to see go home after American Idol Season 16 Hollywood Week? Who are you excited to see perform next week?

Oh, and and if you’re a Spoilers kind of person, you can find out who makes it into the Top 24 even before next week’s episode. Just click on that link back there.
