American Idol 2024 Top 24 song list with pictures, performance order and more

American Idol Hollywood Week is over and the Top 24 is in place. Now, the singers will head to the Disney Aulani Resort in Hawaii to perform for AMERICA’S VOTE for the very first time this season. Idol filmed the performances, which will air in two parts, on April 7 and 8, back in February, right before the season premiered.

As a side note, American Idol 2024 is moving closer and closer to the live shows. On the day that Top 24 part two airs, the Top 24 will assemble in Los Angeles to tape the Top 20 reveal. It’s a 3 hour show that will air the following Sunday on April 14. More voting will commence that night and then the show will reveal the Top 14 LIVE on Monday April 15. For the rest of Season 22, American Idol WILL be LIVE.

Check out the schedule for more HERE. Themes will included Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Billboard No. 1s and more. Get your Studio Audience tickets HERE.

Tori Kelly and Jelly Roll will mentor and sit on the panel

The Top 24 episodes will feature American Idol alum Tori Kelly and country singer Jelly Roll who will mentor and join the judges–Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan–on the panel. Reigning winner, Iam Tongi, performs. Also, according to press photos, Vanna White joins host Ryan Seacrest, most likely to promote Wheel of Fortune, which Ryan will take over as host next season.

Back in February, TheIdolPad (@IdolSpoilers) provided accurate Top 24 Spoilers which also included song spoilers. More recently, they provided contestant performance order for both episodes! Tori Kelly and Jelly Roll each mentored 12 contestants on two different nights. Kelly’s episode will air first on April 7, followed by Jelly Roll on April 8.

UPDATE: Made corrections based on Voting numbers which are always in performance order the first night of voting. Keep in mind the order on TV might not be the order it happened live (Hence Idol Spoilers posting a few errors).
