'American Idol' Season 18 ended Sunday night's episode with a cliffhanger making fans go crazy wondering if favorite Dillon James advanced to the Top 20 or not. 

The fan-favorite reality talent competition returned on Sunday night for an all-new episode. The Top 40 contestants made their way to Hawaii but sadly not all will move on to the next round. Only the Top 20 contestants who impressed the judges would advance to Hollywood. 

Just Sam, Louis Knight, Nick Merico, Francisco Martin and DeWayne Crocker Jr were amongst the few who made it to the Top 20. Sadly, Camryn Leigh Smith, Amber Fiedler, and a few others didn't make it through. 

Dillon James closed the night with a rendition of Bob Dylan’s 'The Times They Are A-Changin'. It was a powerful performance, and even though he didn't change a lot he somehow managed to make it sound like his own. The only comment we witnessed was Katy Perry telling Dillon she would like to see him tap into his emotional side more. 

So did Dillon make it to the Top 20 or not? Well, we'll have to wait till the series returns for its next episode to see if Dillon made it to the Top 20 or not. Ending the episode in a cliffhanger, fans are going crazy wondering and hoping that he made it through. 

Taking to Twitter a fan wrote, "Y’all really cut Dillon off like that?! I NEED TO KNOW NOW IF HE MAKES IT! LORD JESUS I PRAY HE’S IN THE TOP 20!" a fan wrote. Another added, "That sucked idol. For us not to know about Dillon is BS #AmericanIdol." 

"I can just tell, I think Dillon is going to go through with this Bob Dylan song!" a fan said. While another wrote, "WHY WOULD AMERICAN IDOL DO THAT TO US. WE NEEDED TO KNOW DILLON’S FATE TONIGHT. That was NOT a good move." 

"Omg! Regarding Dillon...We are going to..... to be continued next week! WTH?" a fan shared. Adding to that another said, "I'm not okay about that cliffhanger at the end of #AmericanIdol tonight. I need to know if Dillon made it through." 

"Wow @AmericanIdol is really going to make us wait til next Sunday to find out if Dillon makes it to to the Top 20," a fan said.
