American Idol filmed performances with the Top 24 on Friday and Saturday (March 2 and 3) to air later during the season. Check out social media, including photos and videos from the tapings, below.
Each semi-finalist performed twice in front of the judges–a solo and a duet with a special celebrity mentor. The list of star performers included: Luis Fonsi, Bebe Rexha, Cam, Pat Monahan, Andy Grammer, Lea Michele, Allen Stone, Aloe Blacc, Banners, Bishop Briggs, Rachel Platten, Colbie Caillat and Sugarland.
The performances were taped in a performance space in front of a studio audience, so hopefully there will be song spoilers and more soon. These critical performances will determine which singers judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan will choose to move on to the finals.
Check out some fun stuff below. American Idol premieres on ABC Sunday March 11.
