'American Idol' Recap: Fourteen Contestants Have Made It to Top 24


'American Idol' Recap: Fourteen Contestants Have Made It to Top 24


Jen Hirsh, Phil Phillips and Erika Van Pelt are among the first batch of singers who will perform in next week's live shows.

"American Idol" trims the number of contestants from 42 to 24 this week, but only fourteen of them were unveiled in the Wednesday, February 22 episode. Jen Hirsh was the first who made it through to the next round.

Creighton Fraker followed in the footsteps of Jen after performing "New York State of Mind", but Lauren Gray was not that lucky and got sent home. Baylie Brown and Chelsea Sorrell, who had auditioned in season 6 and 10 respectively, made the cut this time.

Erika Van Pelt was criticized by Jennifer Lopez for her choice of song in the latest performance, but she made it through anyway. Heejun Han and Phil Phillips were also given "yes" from the judges, but Richie "the Cowboy" Law, who once was in the same team with Heejun and Phil in the Hollywood round, did not make it.

The last performer shown in the episode was Adam Brock, who got emotional as he awaited the result. The show, however, ended before the judges made the announcement, leaving his fate up in the air until Thursday's episode.

The first 14 of the Top 24:

  • Jen Hirsh
  • Creighton Fraker
  • Joshua Ledet
  • Haley Johnsen
  • Elise Testone
  • Reed Grimm
  • Erika Van Pelt
  • Chelsea Sorrell
  • Baylie Brown
  • Heejun Han
  • Jessica Sanchez
  • Phil Phillips
  • Colton Dixon
  • Brielle Von Hugel
