AceShowbiz - "American Idol" returned with a new episode on Sunday, April 5. In the new episode, the remaining contestants hit the stage in Hawaii to earn the coveted 12 spots left in the Top 20.
Dillon James opened the show with a performance Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are a-Changin' " and it was totally stunning, enough to convince the judges that Dillon was worth to be put in the Top 20. Genavieve Lincowski, however, was eliminated.
Joining Dillon in the Top 20 was Franklin Boone, who wowed judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie with a performance of "Daughters" by John Mayer. Julia Gargano, who sang "Glitter in the Air" by Pink, and Aliana Jester also made it to the Top 20.
Next up were Sophia Wackerman and Kimmy Gabriela. Their performances were not disappointing, so they were sent to the next round. Meanwhile, that night marked the end of Robert Taylor and Shannon Gibbons' journey on the show.
More singers were sent to the Top 20, including Cyniah Elise, Makayla Phillips, Lauren Spencer-Smith, Olivia Ximines and unsurprisingly frontrunner Arthur Gunn. Later, Demi Rae hit the stage to belt out a stellar performance of Noah Cyrus' "Lonely". However, the judges didn't think it was Top 20 material so she was eliminated.
That left 2 final singers--Lauren Mascitti and Grace Leer. Grace sang a rendition of Aretha Franklin's "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman". Meanwhile, Lauren took the stage to perform "Two More Bottles of Wine" by Emmylou Harris. The two country singers were both stunning, so the judges left the decision to the viewers through a voting.
Voting will close on Tuesday, April 7 at 9 A.M. E.T.
