'American Idol' Season 17: With the top 40 contestants decided, fans reveal who they are rooting for
On Sunday when the next episode of 'American Idol' airs we will get to witness the Showcase Round and the Final Judgment before they reveal the top 20 contestants
On Monday night when the seventh episode of 'American Idol' season 17 aired, we witnessed a very hectic Hollywood Week continue and come to a surprising end. We got to witness a lot of amazing talent, some wonderful original songs performed by contestants and surprisingly, a contestant got engaged.
The last episode of the Hollywood week started off with the final set of group rounds that were not featured on Sunday. After the group rounds ended, there were 70 contestants left. The final round was another solo performance round, where the remaining 70 contestants had to perform from which only 40 contestants advanced to the next round.
On Sunday when the next episode of 'American Idol' airs we will get to witness the Showcase Round and Final Judgment before they reveal the top 20 contestants. And now with the top 40 revealed, fans are sharing who they are rooting for and also requesting the series to feature the contestants that haven't been showcased much as yet.
"Hey I see @thepaytontaylor amongst this group of #Top40 #Hawai #AmericanIdol Not seeing a lot of her so I am giving a big shout out to #Paytontaylor & all the #paytoners #paytonattics #paytonies #paytonlove #redhead I will come up with a catchy one yet lol," wrote a fan. While another added, "I'm here for Jeremiah, Laci, Walker, Logan, Madison..... and Alejandro..... and Nick..... and Ashley..... and Margie.... and I like to choose more."
Fans also revealed they are having a hard time choosing one contestant who they think might win, because of the huge number of talented singers this season. "I’m so obsessed with this show. The talent on this season is THROUGH THE ROOF! How are we ever going to pick just one winner?!" asked a fan. To which another replied, saying, "Absolutely, some very talented singers! It’s amazing how much! #bringyourAgame."
This is true, because this season we did witness some spectacular talent. With just the auditions and Hollywood Week done, we have already witnessed many contestants perform original songs that the judges fell in love with, and with voices that can hit any range.
While we cannot wait to see what the top 40 contestants bring in the upcoming episode, some fans are also requesting the series to showcase the performance of contestants that they haven't much featured yet on the series. "I hope we actually see performances from the ones we haven’t seen since auditions or never.. how will the public get behind them if we never see them perform," wrote a fan. While another added, "Maybe we’ll actually get to see @ashleyhessmusic perform in Hawaii because we haven’t heard her sing since her audition."
On Sunday when 'American Idol' airs its 8th episode, we will get to witness the contestants battle it out to make it to the top 20.
