"American Idol" Top 4 Pulls Quadruple Duty - Who Will Make The Finale?
This is it - the penultimate "American Idol" of 2021! In order to make it into the finale, the Top 4 take the stage four times, including duets with each other for the first time. The show is truly packed with performances as guest mentor and super producer Finneas also sings his song "Till Forever Falls Apart" with Ashe and judge Luke Bryan dons his denim for "Waves".
It was truly a love fest from Luke and fellow judges Katy Perry and Lionel Richie as Chayce Beckham, Casey Bishop, Wille Spence, and Grace Kinstler put on mini-concerts to rave comments from all three every time. Host Ryan Seacrest helped give context for the episode's proceedings - the first round the Top 4 performed songs by their personal idols (Zac Brown Band, Billie Eilish, John Legend, and original Idol Kelly Clarkson). Next was back-to-back songs as they performed their new singles, which are already on sale and charting(!), and an encore of a song they performed prior to the Top 24. Finally, duets! Finneas opened up his songbook, pairing Willie and Grace and Chayce and Casey together for "What They'll Say About Us" and "Break My Heart Again" respectively.
With a night full of such strong vocals, who did America's votes put through to the finale? Revealed in no particular order, Chayce and Willie are the first to make it into the Top 3. With Grace and Casey left, Grace takes the last spot and Casey has been eliminated.The Top 3 are now set! How many hometown awards will be given during the hometown visits?
