‘American Idol’ recap: Top 20 revealed


The results are in, and we have our Top 20 finalists on American Idol.

After the Top 24 performed last week, it was up to America to vote to save their favorites. The results of those votes were revealed Sunday night during a three-hour episode filled with performances from the Top 20, as well as, some of the show’s past favorites, like last year’s winner Chayce Beckham, plus Alejandro, and Phillip Phillips.

After Platinum ticket holder Kenedi Anderson dropped out of the competition last week, citing still unspecified “personal reasons,” that meant three more singing hopefuls would be sent home this week.
