What happens during the ‘American Idol’ top 14 round?

During Monday night’s episode, “Idol” revealed the top 14 singers. Each of the 20 remaining contestants performed a song of their choice in the hopes of continuing on in the competition.

Monday’s episode also featured special performances from Lauren Spencer-Smith, Teddy Swims and Paul Russell.

Spencer-Smith reached the “American Idol” top 14 in Season 18, and released her debut album, “Mirror,” last year. Swims is known for his breakout hit last year, “Lose Control,” which hit No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, per the entertainment site Gold Derby. And Russell is well known for his breakout single, “Little Boo Thang,” which started climbing Billboard charts last year. He is an opening act on Meghan Trainor’s 2024 Timeless tour.
