“American Idol” Top 24 Will Be Unveiled Feb. 16 & 17

For the first time in its nine season history, the nation’s most watched TV talent show will divide its announcement of the Top 24 over two nights.

American Idol will reveal some of the Top 24 semifinalists on Tuesday night’s two-hour show — which will see several several of the contestants performing their final solo number in front of Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres, Randy Jackson, and Kara DioGuardi. The remainder of the contestants who managed to triumph through the show’s grueling Hollywood Round successfully will be unveiled on Wednesday, Feb. 17.
