'American Idol' Recap: Find Out Who the Judges Pick to Round Out the Top 10

After the 14 contestants of season 17 of the singing competition hit the stage to perform last night, the new episode will feature the singers learning the results of America's votes.

AceShowbiz - "American Idol" season 17 revealed its Top 10 in the Sunday, April 15 episode. After the 14 contestants hit the stage to perform last night, seven singers would be announced as the ones who move to the next round. Meanwhile, the judges, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, would pick one singer each to be added to the Top 10.

The first singer that was sent to the next round was Madison VanDenburg, who sang Lady GaGa's "You & I" as her celebratory song. She was carried by emotions as she nearly cried at the end of her performance. Host Ryan Seacrest later called Evelyn Cormier to the stage to learn her results. Unfortunately, she wasn't guaranteed a spot in the Top 10. She sang Kansas' "Dust in the Wind" to impress the judges.

Walker Burroughs was then announced to be among the Top 10. To celebrate it, he performed a "Lovebug" by the Jonas Brothers. Riley Thompson, meanwhile, performed "It Must Be Love" in the hopes that the judges would pick her to be added to the Top 10.

Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon was the next contestant to learn his fate. He got a spot in the Top 10, and he belted out an original song for his victory song. Alyssa Raghu opted to sing Katy's "The One That Got Away" after learning that she wasn't voted into the Top 10 by America. Katy totally loved it as she said it was "100 times better" than she ever sang it herself.

Wade Cota also earned a spot in the Top 10, which honestly wasn't that surprising. He performed "Simple Man" by Lynyrd Skynyrd. The next to hear the results was Dimitrius Graham. Unfortunately, he didn't get a Top 10 spot and he performed "When the Party's Over" by Billie Eilish, hoping the judges would pick him later.

Laci Kaye Booth, who took a risk with her performance of a Blink-182 song last night, got a satisfying result as America voted her through. She sang Fleetwood Mac's "As Long As You" to celebrate the good news. Eddie Island, meanwhile, sang "Use Somebody" by Kings of Leon as he was among who vyed for one of three more spots given by the judges.

Ashley Hess was also not voted into the Top 10 by America, and she opted to sing "Sir Duke" by Stevie Wonder for her redemption song. Laine Hardy was safe as he was announced to be moving to the next round. He flaunted his skills by singing "Hurricane" by The Band of Heathens to celebrate.

The last spot in the Top 10 was given to Alejandro Aranda, who offered a performance of an original song. With that, Uche was among the 7 singers who were battling for 3 available spots in the Top 10. He hoped he would impress the judges with a unique rendition of "Diamonds" by Rihanna. Well, he did as Lionel picked him to join the Top 10.

Katy picked Alyssa, while Luke chose Dimitrius after changing his mind several times.
