American Idol production just spent a very busy few days in Hawaii auditioninging contestants for the Top 20 (Yes, it’s a Top 20 this year, rather than a Top 24). The Showcase round took place over the weekend which involved forty contestants performing for judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan. Host Ryan Seacrest and mentor Bobby Bones were also on the island to lend a hand.
This Top 20 is about to make a SPLASH! ???
We can’t wait for you to meet them! ???

Tuesday night (Jan 30) the Green Mile episode was taped–that’s when each of the Top 40 are brought before the judges one by one to learn their fate. Twenty singers emerged from the eliminations. It all went down at the Disney Aulani resort in beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii.

*David Vázquez Zermeño (27, from Granada, Spain) and Evelyn Cormier (18, from Claremont, New Hampshire), both from religious Christian families and both virgins before marriage, met after David saw the Facebook page for Evelyn’s band and sent her a message. David had only discussed sex once in his life, with his family at the age of 13, and did not want to talk with Evelyn about sex on camera. Despite David’s objections to living in a small town, they got married and live in Claremont, New Hampshire. Wikipedia
