American Idol is back in Hawaii for the Top 40 Showcase Round. Judges Lionel RichieKaty Perry and Luke Bryan as well as host Ryan Seacrest and mentor Bobby Bones are on hand to watch contestant performances and whittle the field down to a…Top 20? Probably. We’ll soon find out. As previously reported, the American Idol 2020 Showcase Round is taking place at the Disney Aulani Resort and Spa.

The episode is set to be taped in two parts Friday Jan 31. And as in previous seasons, the Idol Pad insiders are spoiling contestant names. So far, there are 30 contestants rumored to have made the showcase round. Watch this space for updates. After Friday, hopefully we will get some song spoilers as well. 

We already spoiled most of the names on this list, in our Hollywood Round Spoiler List. There were a few we didn’t have–that list was incomplete.
