American Idol Season 19 Schedule

Am I the only one who thinks the Monday shows might just serve as another performance episode rather than a 2-hour results show?

 

ABC doesn't really have much to air given the circumstances. And ABC has already experimented with doing the whole live voting followed by an actual elimination on Monday night rather than Sunday with the most recent season of Dancing With the Stars.

 

4/04 - Top 24, Group A Solo

4/05 - Top 24, Group A Duets

4/11 - Top 24, Group B Solo

4/12 - Top 24, Group B Duets

4/18 - Top 16 Perform

4/19 - Top 16 Results (Direct Advancements + Wildcards Akin to S16/S17's Top 14 Round)

4/25 - No Episode

4/26 - Top 10

5/02 - Top 9

5/03 - Top 8

5/09 - Top 7

5/10 - Top 6

5/16 - Top 5

5/17 - Top 4

5/23 - Top 3 / Finale

 

The only reason I could see it not being a thing is because once they get to multiple song weeks, it'd be hard on the contestants, but there's way to alleviate some of that as well.

 

Just an idea.

Im going to guess the format is 

 

24-16-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-3

 

This is assuming that after the Final 12 reveal episode, all Sunday and Monday episodes are performances. They have room for one double elimination but IDK where they would put it, for now Ill guess right before Finale.

 

They also completely removed the episodes the week of the Oscars which is interesting.

An update on my schedule prediction:

I'm really hoping that Mondays will be another performance show rather than a two hour results show. If you're gonna throw a twist at the contestants, THAT would be a major twist.

I dont see them doing the Top 12 reveal and then an elimination on the Monday April 12th episode. It will probably be similar to S16 and S17 F14 where there were victory performances/wildcard performances.

Yeah, you're right. I just edited the schedule. Do you think there's any way theyre gonna go back to announcing the results at the beginning of the episode?

I think we’re going to see live voting on both nights for the entire season. DWTS just did it on Monday nights for their most recent season, and ABC has experience doing it for Idol on Sunday nights.

Yeah i agree, I think theyre most likely gonna go with that format. Gives viewers more of an incentive to watch. I feel for the contestants though, two performances a week and theyre really gonna have to be on their A game

It’s no different than the multi-song weeks in the past, just with then being spread over two nights. I think the real issues may come towards the entire when both performance shows are multiple songs.

Updated guess at what our schedule looks like now:

 

SUN 4/04 - Top 24, Group A

MON 4/05 - Top 24, Group B

SUN 4/11 - Top 24 Results & Top 16 Perform

MON 4/12 - Top 16 Results (I'm guessing it'd be similar to the Victory/Second Chance performances from S16 & S17)

SUN 4/18 - Top 12 Perform

MON 4/19 - Top 11 Perform (Not sure when they'd do the double elimination, but I'll put it here just since it happening before the week off makes sense to me.)

SUN 5/02 - Top 9 Perform

MON 5/03 - Top 8 Perform

SUN 5/09 - Top 7 Perform

MON 5/10 - Top 6 Perform

SUN 5/16 - Top 5 Perform

MON 5/17 - Top 4 Perform

SUN 5/23 - Top 3 Finale

Forgot to ask — why is there a week off?

The Oscars air on ABC on Sunday the 25th, and they just recently decided to take that Monday off as well.
