'American Idol' Recap: Viewers Get to Pick the 30th Semifinalist

February 14, 2014, 3:32 am GMT

Ben Briley and Neco Starr are still vying for the final spot in the Top 30 as judges can't decide who deserves to go through to the semifinals.



"American Idol" announced the remaining of the Top 30 on Thursday, February 13, but not without a twist. At the end of the episode, 31 are still in the competition, leaving America to choose the 30th semifinalist.

The episode picked up where the Wednesday episode left off, with revealing the results of Casey Thrasher and C.J. Harris' performances. As many had predicted, both of them survived following their strong performances.

Marialle Sellars, who came out as a frontrunner early in the season, learned her fate next. Harry Connick Jr. criticized her inconsistency, but she made it to the next round anyway. "I forgot how to breathe," she said.

Jena Ascuitto, whom Harry thought a "sleeper," was also in. The judges easily decided to send Majesty Rose York to the Top 30. Kenzie Hall, who cried during her performance dedicated to her mom, made it as well. Brandy Neelly and Briana Oakley, who went up together, were both in the Top 30, while Austin Wolfe earned the final spot for the girls.

There's one place left for the guys, with Ben Briley and Neco Starr still awaiting the decision. The judges told them that it was a tough choice, so they let viewers choose which one of them who makes the Top 30.
