‘American Idol’ recap: Gabby Barrett mentors, Top 11 revealed’American Idol’ recap: Gabby Barrett mentors, Top 11 revealed
And then there were 11.
The search for the next American Idol continued Sunday night as the Top 14 dwindled down to the Top 11.
Before it was revealed who unfortunately hadn’t secured enough of America’s votes, the talented singers took the stage to perform a song fitting of the night’s theme: Breakout Hits. Keeping with the theme it only made sense to have former contestant and Idol icon Gabby Barrett return to mentor the current contestants. After all, her breakout hit “I Hope” went five times platinum and was the best-selling country song of 2020.
After the remaining contestants left it all on the stage, America’s votes were revealed. Here’s who made the Top 11 and who was eliminated.
Jay: “Just The Way You Are” Bruno Mars
Huntergirl: “Baby Girl” Sugarland
Christian Guardino: “Take Me To Church” Hozier
Leah Marlene: “Happy Together” The Turtles
Fritz Hager: “Let It Go”James Bay
Tristen Gressett: “Whataya Want From Me” Adam Lambert
Lady K: “I Believe” Fantasia
Mike Parker: “Hurricane” Luke Combs

Noah Thompson: “Stand By Me” Ben E. King
Nicolina: “Hallelujah” Jeff Buckley
Ava Maybee: “Sign of the Times” Harry Styles

The Top 11 will take the stage again for America’s votes when American Idol returns Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
