On “American Idol” Monday, April 19th, 10 “American Idol” contestants from last year’s top 20 performed live on the “Idol” stage for the first time ever.

They sang for America’s vote, each hoping to secure the final spot left in this season’s top 10.

So, when will the “comeback” winner be revealed? Fans might have to wait a little while to find out.

For now, the fate of these 10 singers rests in the hands of viewers at home. Voting opened Monday night and won’t close until Monday, April 26th, according to Billboard.

The winning contestant will join season 19’s top 10, which already includes Grace Kinstler, Casey Bishop, Willie Spence, Alyssa Wray, Caleb Kennedy, Deshawn Goncalves, Chayce Beckham, Cassandra Coleman, and Hunter Metts.

“American Idol” executive producer Trish Kinane explained to Billboard that last year’s top contestants didn’t get the full “Idol” experience because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Singers had to perform from their homes, and without a full band, unlike this season’s contestants.

So, when will America find out which former contestant is coming back for a chance to win “American Idol?”
