And then there were 40.
American Idol narrowed the remaining pool of contestants Thursday night to the 20 guys and 20 girls who will be going to the semifinals in Las Vegas next week. First up was the conclusion of the girls’ competition, which began on Wednesday’s show.

Let’s break down some of the best and worst moments of Thursday’s episode.
