AMERICAN IDOL: JUDGES SAVE MAKAYLA PHILLIPS, REVEAL TOP 11 IN SECOND STAY-AT-HOME SHOW

On Sunday, the second socially distant stay at a home show, “American Idol” brought down the competition from 20 contestants to 10 contestants revealing the top 10 singers of the show who received the maximum numbers of votes from the viewers. 

But, just when the host, Ryan Seacrest was about to send the other 10 disqualified contestants back, the judges decided to use their one-time power to save one contestant from elimination.

They decided to keep back Makayla Phillips, a 17-year-old singer from Temecula, California who previously competed on America’s Got Talent season 13 in 2018 and was eliminated during the semifinals.

Judge Katy Perry said of her decision, “It was difficult. But I think she can give some of the other contestants that are in our top 10 a run for their money locally, as long as she is picking the right song that connects with the people that are watching and listening.” 

Judge Luke Bryan said, “Early in the audition, I heard this amazing voice out of you and I’ve been really wanting America to hear that, and that’s why we fought for you and saved you. I’m so glad you came back just to allow America to hear what a great singer you are.”

Judge Lionel Richie said to this, “You are a star, Ms. 17-year-old. Keep working hard because you are on your way somewhere to the stars.” 

HOW DID PHILLIPS REACT? |

Phillips, when heard of the judges’ decision, got visibly emotional and relieved. She said, “Oh, my god! I’m going to cry right now. This has been my dream since I was very little, so this means the world and more to me.” 

And in this way, the show got it’s Top 11 instead of Top 10. 

The Top 11 are:

  1. Julia Gargano, 21, New York 
  2. Arthur Gunn, 21, Kanas
  3. Dillion James, 26, California
  4. Sophia James, 20, California
