The American Idol 2023 Top 20 will be unveiled on Sunday. And as a matter of fact, the show taped on Thursday night (April 20). The six contestants who were eliminated may leak or not (BUT IF THEY DO NO SPOILING IN COMMENTS!)

UPDATE The Spoilers have leaked:

American Idol 2023 Spoilers: Season 21 Top 20 Contestants Revealed!

American Idol split the Top 26 into two groups. Thirteen singers performed on each night on the beach at the Disney Aulani Resort in Hawaii in front of the judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan. But for the first time this season, fans participated in an overnight vote to determine the Top 20 contestants.

After each episode, we conducted a poll. Many fans share that the most accurate results determinate is Facebook views and likes. So what we’ve done is post Facebook views and Poll results side by side. If Facebook is at all accurate, results could be surprising.

Just remember that NONE OF IT–Facebook or Internet Polls is scientific!

Thee singers will be eliminated from each night for a total of six eliminations.

Facebook Stats (Views) – Top 3 Eliminated (Poll) (NIGHT 1)

Poor PJAE landed at the bottom of both Night 1 lists. He seems like a goner. But while fans think Haven might be in trouble, she’s about mid-pack when it comes to Facebook views. Oliver Steele, who had a solid performance but performed 2nd (death spot!) could be in trouble, according to Facebook. Elise Kristine performed first and she rates low on both lists. Take note of Warren Peay: In danger on the poll, but the second most Facebook views to Iam Tongi who again garnered MILLIONS of viewers, blowing the competition away.

Facebook Stats (Views) – Top 3 Eliminated (Poll) (NIGHT 2)

Nutsa joins Iam in the million view club. But did that whole (pretty stupid) thing about Katy getting “booed” for criticizing Nutsa entice fans to watch but not necessarily vote? And are the views from overseas–ie people who aren’t voting? She’s surely safe this week. But how far will America’s Vote take her?

SHOCKING that Hannah Nicolaisen who turned in a tender and heartfelt cover of Pink’s “Glitter in the Air” despite being sick received so few views. Her number is rock bottom. Malik Heard, and Dawson Wayne, who weren’t featured during auditions, land low on both lists.

Only two of four Platinum Ticket holders remain. Elijah McCormick appears to be in danger, while Tyson Venegas garnered the second highest views on Facebook. After the show pushed Elijah so hard, his elimination would be shocking, indeed.

On Monday May 1, the judges choose songs for the Top 10. A top 7 is revealed.
