Tonight on FOX American Idol returns with a whole new episode. On last week’s show we saw the final ladies individual performances and the ladies were tapered down to 20 ladies. We also also saw an additional 8 men who were sent through last week eliminated.
By the end of the evening 40 contestants move ahead to the Las Vegas round. There were tears, crying, cat fights and a lot of contestants that did not impress the judges. Did you watch last week’s show? We did and we recapped it here for you.
On tonight’s show the Vegas move is a new twist in the competition, during which the Top 40 once again will be split by gender. On Wednesday, Feb. 20 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and continuing Thursday, Feb. 21 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), Wednesday, Feb. 27 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Thursday, Feb. 28 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), 10 semifinalists will perform each night – girls on Wednesdays and guys on Thursdays.
Each night, the judges will be faced with the tough decision of choosing which five will stay and which five will be sent home. At the end of the first stage of the semifinals, only 20 contestants will remain.
