American Idol 2022 – Top 14 performing tonight after Sage, Cameron Whitcomb, Jacob Moran & more eliminated

AMERICAN Idol is back again now — with this season’s top 14 performers left standing.

Tonight’s American Idol episode comes after Sage McNeely, Cadence Baker, Katyrah Love, Elli Rowe, Jacob Moran, and Cameron Whitcomb were sent home by the judges last week.

America’s vote determined who made it into the Top 10, and the judges saved four contestants, sending home the remaining six from the Top 20.

The judges saved Allegra Miles, Jay Copeland, Mike Parker, and Tristen Gressett.

The shocking eliminations came after host Ryan Seacrest revealed Sunday night that Scarlet Ayliz, Danielle Finn, and Sir Blayke did not make it through to the Top 20.
