Pretty decent schedule compared to what we got the last two seasons. Six weeks of finals, not bad.

It doesn't mean the judges won't have wildcard picks and have some control over who stays, who leaves.

We're doing two weekends for the semi-finals? :huh: Don't see why they couldn't start the finals a week earlier and just get rid of one of the double eliminations.

There’s probably too many singers in the Semifinals for just one week.

They had no problem with it last season.

I think that I considered the Top 20 week and the Top 14 week as the Semifinals, making it two weeks.  You may have just considered the Top 14 week as the Semifinals.

Ooh, right. I always forget about the Top 14 round because I find it stupid. I guess the schedule makes a little more sense, then. I think it'd make more sense to just do it all on Sunday again like last year and make the Monday night the results/WC performances, and just skip the Top 14 round completely. :haha:

i don't want to say it and put it out in the universe but...what if they get split into two groups for the semi final performances then we vote for a top 5 from each group...🤡

My guess is all in one night again, with the Top 14 round happening the next weekend.

So Top 14 is two episodes while Top 20 is one episode? How would a Monday overnight voting episode work anyways? Would they reveal results on next Sunday?

Why don't we just have live voting for all of those episodes then? Top 20, then Top 14, then Top 12

Top 14 will work like it has the past two years - they perform on Sunday, we vote. The next night, the Top 7 are announced and perform their "victory" songs while the remaining seven perform their second chance songs for the judges' wildcard spots. The only difference is the Top 20/21 show will have voting, and they'll announce the 14 moving on at the beginning of the Top 14 show.

 

As for the second part, they don't want to have live voting on the Monday episodes because they're not able to air the show live in all timezones on Mondays (think of all the talk shows, local affiliate news programs, soap operas, etc. that air during the weekdays) compared to being able to do so on Sunday.

Is it just one hour on Monday night, or have they re-edited the green mile to be 4 hours now?

I hope every single one of the top 40 will be on the episodes with their full performances for condoling that the season is destined to be cancelled.

I see that the April 5th episode, which was originally supposed to be semi-finals, has been re-titled "This Is Me Part #1."   Could this be like that "look back" episode they did at final 8 (I think) last year?
