On the April 25, 2022 episode of ABC’s “American Idol“, the top 11 artists performed live coast-to-coast with hopes of receiving enough votes from viewers to make it through to the top 9. The top 9 contestants were announced at the end of the episode.
WARNING: Spoilers for the Top 11 performances and top 9 reveal episode of “American Idol” follow. Don’t read on if you don’t want to know who made it through to the Top 9.
Read on below for a live recap of the results as they aired. If you’d rather just have a list of which contestants made it through and which were eliminated, scroll to the bottom for that.
Because the episode aired live coast-to-coast, votes came in in real time from around the country. Voting stopped before the last commercial break, and then the artists who did not make it through were eliminated by the end of the episode.
The singers who did make it through move on to next Sunday night’s Disney night episode. During that episode, the artists will sing one song from a Disney movie.
