American Idol 2018 Recap: Top 24 Contestants Revealed

By Steve Dove | Apr 3rd, 2018

American Idol 2018 continued its journey, closing out Hollywood Week with the solo round before sending the remaining contestants on to the Showcase, their first chance to perform in front of a full audience. From there, the 50 remaining contestants sat down, one-by-one, with judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan for their Final Judgment. It was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster as several fan favorites were sent home and others made it through to the next round. Heading into the Top 24 solos next Sunday will be another level of challenge, followed by All-Star Duets on Monday with artists like Bebe Rexha, Luis Fonsi, Lea Michele, Sugarland, and Aloe Blacc. You can stream Episode 7: Hollywood Week and Episode 8: Showcase & Final Judgment right here on ABC.com for the full show, but here are some highlights from the week you won't want to miss, starting off with the full list of the American Idol 2018 Top 24 Contestants!

Jurnee delivered an emotional Showcase performance, bolstered by the fact that her wife was able to be in the audience for the first time. Now she's in the Top 24!

Ada's Cover of "Creep"

Before her Showcase, the judges were speculating that Ada Vox may try one too many tricks in her performance, but instead she sang a stripped-back, unique version of Radiohead's "Creep" that helped propel her to the Top 24.
