The final season of American Idol is underway and the Hollywood Week round has come to an end with the announcement of the top 24 contestants!
There are so many talented artists in this group and it is sure to be a competitive season this year. You might notice that there are more girls than boys this year and it comes as no surprise after the judges constantly have remarked that there are so many talented girls this season.
Make sure to tune in next week to watch the top 24 perform. Ten contestants will reportedly be cut next, with 14 singers going to the live shows.

Lauren Alaina gets the giggles after a joke spread on the American Idol panel at the FOX portion during the 2016 Winter TCA Tour held at the Langham Huntington Hotel on Friday afternoon (January 15) in Pasadena, Calif.
On the panel, all three judges and Ryan were quick to say that this current season may not be its’ final.
“You never know with a format like this – it’s possible,” Jennifer shared during the debate of whether season 15 was the “final” or “farewell”. “Whether they’re making a mistake, if that’s the feeling, right now, that’s their feeling….At the end of the day you never know.”
Ryan added, “I was just speaking to Gary and Dana [cochairs/CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman] before the session. The numbers look great this season and we’re all pleased people are watching, and some are coming back to watch…Does that mean it’s the end? I’m not so sure.”
“That moment when @KeithUrban and @JLo are singing your song. #Coolkids,” the band pinched themselves a bit on Twitter.
