Last night we watched as the American Idol 2019 judges took the Top 40 down to the Top 20. Tonight that Top 20 will return to Los Angeles to perform another round of solos before an audience and the judges.
This is just an added round that the judges will take into account after the celebrity duets next week when they cut the 20 down to the Top 14. So no cuts will happen tonight.
From ABC: The stakes grow higher as the Top 20 “American Idol” finalists sing their hearts out in front of a live audience at Los Angeles’ famed venue The Wiltern, airing on The ABC Television Network, MONDAY, APRIL 1 (8:00–10:00 p.m. EDT), streaming and on demand.
Be sure to head back here tonight following the episode for our recap and find out who we think has made the grade and should move on to the Top 14. Below you’ll find the Top 20 song choices for tonight, thanks again to The Idol Pad.

Those are some interesting song choices. I particularly like “Jolene” for Riley and “To Make You Feel My Love” for Jeremiah. I also see some big risks, like “Hello” for Dimitrius. This should be a really interesting round!
