To clarify, we did not release and then remove the spoilers. We will release them at the appropriate time.
Although the performances will be pre-filmed, the voting results are suppose to air live, which means that we will be revealing contestants’ fates before they themselves officially learn. We have done so before on only a few occasions, such as with the judges’ 10 rehearsal-based eliminations during season 13’s semi-finals, which we received backlash for, including from the parent of one eliminated contestant. Due to the rarity and controversial nature of such spoilers, we are waiting until after the contestants have filmed their performances.
