American Idol 2022 Spoilers: Showstopper Contestant List and Song Choices


American Idol season 20 kicked off it’s first taping with a live studio audience on Friday (Dec 10). And now, only hours later, a spoiler list has emerged!

Last year spoilers were few and far between. COVID kept sets closed until season 19 premiered in February. There were limited audience members for live shows. But most, strict COVID-19 protocols kept sets locked down tight. But now with LIVE audiences returning, so are the Spoilers.

According to The Idol Pad (@IdolSpoilers on Twitter) 59 singers who made it out of Hollywood Week sang in front of judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan. Ryan Seacrest was on hand to host.

TIP has the list of singers. But keep in mind these names are SPOILERS, not an official list. We have not confirmed the list. Although TIP’s track record is excellent, there could be information on this list that is incorrect. We will update the list with any and all corrections.

Also, we will update this post with SONG CHOICES for each contestant and other biographical information, so stay tuned. Bookmark this post!

UPDATE: Song choices!
