The American Idol 2023 spoilers Showcase Round edition! The showcase round, which comes at the end of Hollywood Week, taped in front of a live audience on Sunday December 11. Here’s a list of 49 contestants which is reportedly from a Top 55 via TheIdolpad.com (@IdolSpoilers on Twitter).
While there is only one American Idol returnee on the list so far (Kya Monee, Season 20) there are at least 7 from The Voice! Notably, Wé McDonald a standout finalist from season 11 and Samuel Harness from The Voice season 21. There is evan a Songland grad in there.
It’s worth noting that Avalon Young from American Idol season 15, who confirmed she auditioned, didn’t make the cut.
Additionally, an audience member contacted me to say there are FOUR platinum tickets, in addition to Elijah McCormick who won the American Music Awards fan vote. The two singers who competed against Elijah–Matt Wilson and Haven Madison–are also on the list.
We’ll be updating this post with more information. Actually, will keep all the showcase spoilers in this post!
Updated: Added Jayna Brown (AGT alum), Joseph Lee White Jr. and Nutsa Buzaladze. According to Blake Busch, It also appears the contestants been taping around Malibu, Nutsa posted a story wearing a Lei, so perhaps the Top 24 will tape in Hawaii again.
UPDATED: According to @IdolSpoilers the Top 24 are heading back to Disney Aulani in Kapolei, Hawaii and will take place February 8 to February 14.
Fun fact: Wé McDonald reportedly performed last. She also performed last on The Voice finale singing “Don’t Rain on My Parade.”
