Take #2: American Idol Season 19 Semi-Finals (Top 24 + Twist)

Sunday, February 21st
Originally Launched, Finalized, & Withdrawn

Thursday, March 11th
Re-Launched As "Take #2"

Monday, March 22nd
"Take #2" Finalized

  • Green Mile twist remains unknown but it is not simply an addition (as with Jermaine Jones expanding the Top 24 to a Top 25 in season 11).
  • There are in fact just 24 slots for the 1st round of the semi-finals.
  • The twist is suspected to be a duel for the final position (as with Ben Briley versus Neco Starr in season 13 and Grace Leer versus Lauren Mascitti in season 18).
  • Benson Boone is confirmed to have withdrawn from the Top 24 and been replaced, making him only the 2nd semi-finalist (or finalist) in American Idol history to do so, with the 1st being Mario Vazquez who withdrew from the AI4 Top 12.
  • It is also confirmed that Anilee List made the Top 24 as a result of Benson's withdrawal, either as a conventional replacement or by invalidating the need for a duel between her and another contestant on the list.
  • The Top 24 will not be divided, alphabetically, based on their first names, after all.

    1. probably not accurate .... !!! -- Richard H. Dodge

    2. Alyssa Wray was accurate and will be in the TOP 24. -- Richard H. Dodge.

  2. What about Alex Miller? He's my favorite.

    1. He’s the last person I want to win. Sorry. I do not like country boys winning. They rely on country biased voters.

  3. This is a huge shocker there are some names thats should have made the top 24.

    1. NO; it still has discrepancies and notable singers missing. for example ALEX MILLER, XAVIER WASHINGTON, MADISON WATKINS -- Richard H. Dodge

  5. Amanda Mena is the champion of The Voice Kids (Spanish Version) and a Golden Buzzer in AGT and she's not in this Top 24 list. Damn. What happened in Hollywood Week?

  6. IF accurate... And from past years, I'm assuming it is, I'm disappointed that Murphy (AKA Blind Boy) didn't make it.

  7. Heather Russell should be on there! I'm so sad about this!

  8. It’s hard to believe that they actually eliminated Alex. I’ll also really miss Murphy

  9. Nahh this must be wrong.. How is Murphy not there?? He is literally the most authentic artist on the whole competition..

  10. such a shame murphy isn't here. he was one of the best and original ones in the whole competition. I hope there is a mistake

  11. Xavier Washington just confirmed on his facebook page he was eliminated in the show stopper round
