This Sunday on American Idol 2019, The Top 6 will be taking on show stopping inspirational songs as they’re mentored by former Idol contestant Lauren Daigle. They’ll also be singing songs from the Woodstock setlist, which I find way more exciting than the other theme.
Of course at the end of the night we’ll also be getting the voting results, which means two more could be going home unless the judges use their one save of the season. And something tells me they will be using it this week.
The stakes are high as the remaining “American Idol” finalists sing their hearts out in hopes of winning America’s vote and advancing to the next phase of the competition. In this episode, each contestant will perform one inspirationally powerful “showstopper” song, with the help of former Idol hopeful and now GRAMMY® Award-winning artist, Lauren Daigle, who serves as celebrity guest mentor. Each finalist will also take on a song performed at the famed Woodstock music festival in 1969, which remains one of the most historic moments in popular music history. Sunday night’s show will be the final opportunity for the judges to use their coveted save on one contestant this season. Last season’s second runner-up and powerhouse vocalist, Gabby Barrett, returns to the Idol stage to perform her latest song, “I Hope,” claiming her the No. 1 spot on Radio Disney Country’s Top 50 Chart and continuing to rise to the Top 3 on SiriusXM’s “The Highway.” The journey to find the next superstar continues SUNDAY, MAY 5 (8:00–10:01 p.m. EDT/5:00-7:01 p.m. PDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.
After making history last season as the first reality competition series on American television to allow viewers to watch and vote from coast to coast simultaneously, “American Idol” continues its simulcast once again in all time zones across the country. For this episode, viewers will be able to vote by text, via AmericanIdol.com/vote and on the “American Idol” app during the show. Results will be revealed at the end of the show in real time, across all time zones. The episode will be rebroadcast during its normal time slot on Sunday at 8:00-10:01 p.m. PDT on the west coast.
