The race to the Top 3 of American Idol is a tough one

Continuing in the mood for celebration, the reality singing competition had another treat of a night for its viewers. The show has been known to produce some superstars in the music industry throughout its time on television. The Top 5 this season have proved just that: they are in line to be the next superstars in the industry.

Episode 19 of American Idol aired on ABC on Sunday, May 15, 2022, at 8.00 pm ET. This week, the contestants had to prove their mettle to impress viewers at home to vote for them and move forward to the finale. They were mentored by the show's alumni and Grammy award winner Carie Underwood.

They had to perform their rendition of the mentor's songs in the first round. All of them were immensely inspired and delivered some impressive performances. While some connected with fans, others didn't. The contestants indeed made their mark on the Entertainment Capital of the World, Las Vegas.

The official synopsis of the episode reads:

"Each contestant will perform two songs, leaving it all on the stage in hopes of earning America’s vote and landing a spot in the Grand Finale. GRAMMY and Academy Award®-winning singer-songwriter and producer Finneas will also perform his new single 'Naked.'"

For the second round of American Idol, the contestants had to perform to close the show and make it worth remembering ahead of the big finale. They put their best foot forward and delivered strong performances that stunned the judges and the audience excited. The show also saw a special appearance by Rita Ora and Diane Warren, who unveiled an exclusive video clip of their new song Finish Line.


American Idol has set its standards high this season with quality stage performances and the tremendous talent that several contestants have brought. However, the contestants have also had to fight hard and compete to win the country's votes to move forward in the competition.
