April 2nd Confirmation: This is not an April Fool's Day joke.

 

For those who forgot or didn't know, the most recent episode was suppose to end with "a surprise twist that no one saw coming," according to its official synopsis, but it didn't happen. Well, the announcement of said twist was simply delayed. It's not just any twist, either. In our opinion, it's the largest twist in American Idol history, by far.

 

  • The major twist is that 10 contestants from the AI18 Top 20 will be returning for a second chance, effectively making a Top 34.
  • To clarify, the Second Chance contestants are in addition to the 2 wild cards, which will be selected by the judges.
  • Second Chance contestants will in fact be voted on by the public.
  • Second Chance Performances will air Monday, April 19th, with the voting results serving as the cliffhanger for the 13-day hiatus.
  • Only a "few" of the 10 Second Chance contestants will ultimately compete with the new contestants.
  • The "few" winners of Second Chance will be officially revealed and merge with the remaining newbie finalists on Sunday, May 2nd.

Now I lost interest.... if they announced this in the beginning of the season, I would be fine. But it seems they are screwing the current Top 24 over. The last season artists had their chance, its ov

disagree completely on this one. last year was more talented and more experienced than half of the ones in the top 24. and it is not their fault that the season got cancelled due to a worldwide pandem

Idk, even if I love the twist (Queen Makayla's coming back after all), it kinds feels unfair to the Top 24 this season? Since some of them are just on their way to strengthen their fan bases or make t

LOL. This should be interesting if its not an April Fools prank, but I honestly dont think it is because of how late in the day its coming.

Has there been any proof of these 10 being in LA ?

Louis has been in LA since the 14th of February. I didn’t think anything of it until just now lol.

Same. He deserves a second chance though.
