We’re getting closer and closer to the live shows on American Idol‘s final season and a major round of cuts happened on tonight’s show!
Five contestants were sent packing and the other seven will be going on to the top 14 round.
The judges had all the power in the showcase round, in which 12 contestants are singing this week and the other 12 are singing next week.
Five contestants are being sent home each week to create the final 14 singers, who will compete in the live shows.
