It was the guys’ turn to be subjected to the sudden death round on Thursday’s American Idol. Following the same format as the ladies a night earlier, the first group of guy semifinalists — 10 in total — performed for the judges, and five were sent home at the end of the night.
Next week, the Vegas rounds continue, with the remaining 10 guys and 10 girls performing on Wednesday and Thursday respectively. After five eliminations each night, just 20 finalists will remain as this season’s competition heads into the live rounds.
By all accounts, Season 12 seems to be the year for a girl to win, so how did the guys measure up? Here’s a breakdown of who stayed in the competition and who was eliminated.
