This sounds more like who you don't like.  This is really a moot point, because Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler were not the judges the last 2 seasons.

The point is if they were, they wouldn’t have picked singers that weren’t great to begin with. These were the worst singers in the Top 20 and Top 24 for those two seasons. Most people in general didn’t like the singers I mentioned above. It’s just a fact.

it looks like they already filmed the grace/lauren vote - they aired a commercial of a split screen of them standing in their house lol

You can say the exact same thing for the entire Top 11 though... in the end they made the decision to come on this show and are aware of the potential outcomes.

Good for Phillip Phillips, though.  ABC has pretty much ignored the alums from FOX, only bringing back Carrie and Adam to perform.  They did have Lauren Daigle on, but fans don't associate her with Id

It's not a fact.  It's an opinion - based on personal taste.   Someone like Wade Cota obviously had enough people voting for him to make it to Top 5 - whether you like him or not. 

 

Also, this is about Spoilers for Season 18 - not about contestants from Seasons 16 & 17.

Can’t confirm 100%, but I’m fairly confident that Franklin Boone is also in Top 40 based on some evidence I’ve found.

 

And by fairly certain I mean 99% sure.

I don't think that's someone singing Riptide lol, that's the original recording of the song. They're just playing music before the show starts.

Thanks! Didn’t know that was her. She’s singing “Como La Flor” by Selena. 

Thanks! I put it on the list.

So far, not too impressed with the cast. My favorites from these performances are Sam, Jonny, Amelia, and Elyjuh.

Hope Genevieve isn’t doing Lady Marmalade.  But if the “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word” is the same song that I remember from my youth, then I wouldn’t mind seeing her sing that song.

Wait I’m confused. Did Margie Mays make the Top 40 or not? The other page on this website for the Top 40 says she didn’t make the Top 40, while this forum in particular said she did.

i would go by idolmaniac's - these are just my findings from instagram

While Genavieve Linkowski and Travis Finlay didn’t make the Top 20, Nick Merico did make the Top 20. He was the one out of all the 8 returnees that I really wanted to make the Top 20. So I got what I wanted and that feels great. I’m guessing Travis Finlay and Genavieve Linkowski really messed up on their Top 40 performance since they didn’t make the Top 20.

Why nine of the contestants did or didn't make the Top 20 based on their Showcase Performance Video.

1. Shannon Gibbons - Sang (Send My Love) To Your New Lover by Adele. Didn't make the Top 20. While this sounds like a good performance, there were others that probably sounded better and there were parts in Hollywood Week she probably messed up in. Although, the judges might say how they didn't really her emotions of the Top 40 performance from her. They did the same with Shayy Winn last season when they told Shayy Winn they didn't really feel her emotion from her Top 40 All I Ask also by Adele performance. So that's why she didn't make the Top 20.
