The first live performance show of the American Idol Top 10 finalists was held on Wednesday, March 13th. The two 10 finalists are Lazaro Arbos, Janelle Arthur, Curtis Finch, Jr., Candice Glover, Kree Harrison, Amber Holcomb, Paul Jolley, Angie Miller, Burnell Taylor and Devin Velez.
The Top 10 finalists performed “Music of the American Idols,” which includes songs performed by any past Idol winner.
On Thursday, March 14, America founded out who received enough votes to continue in the competition and Curtis Finch Jr was sent home.
The Grammy award winning world-renowned rock group Bon Jovi performed their lead single “Because We Can” and quadruple-platinum, Billboard chart-topper and American Idol winner Phillip Phillips performed “Gone, Gone, Gone,” the second single from his debut album.
