American Idol: Who Made Top 14?

American Idol: Who Made Top 14?

While Seacrest and Richie got a head start on duets night, a roster of other famous names will be on hand to take part in the show's duet portion, which will see a major act perform with finalists from the show's Top 24 contestants. The latest in a string of what will surely become one of the more humorous American Idol moments involves Katy's parents, Mary Christine and Maurice Keith Hudson, who appeared on Sunday night's episode and offered their wisdom about Katy as a musician and judge on the show.

"I'm so impressed with the way you've applied yourself, the way you've listened", Katy Perry said. On Monday, they will really put their star power to the test by singing duets with some of their favorite artists, including Luis Fonsi, Andy Grammer, Aloe Blacc, Sugarland and Allen Stone. To which Katy fired back with, "I feel like it's turned out OK for them" along with a grin. When she first began gaining traction, she framed herself as a mysterious figure, initially neglecting to even reveal her real name. You would think that they'd come on the show to cheer on their daughter, but it was literally quite the opposite.

Katy Perry's time on American Idol continues to provide lots of water cooler moments for viewers, each more unforgettable than the last. "Great song choice", Bryan said.

The Top 24 will be trimmed down to Top 14 before hitting the stage for the Live Shows on April 22.

Michelle Sussett and Luis Fonsi - you know, the "Despacito" guy - duetted on Bonnie Raitt's ballad "I Can't Make You Love Me". The singers slow down the song for a more soulful rendition. Katy Perry calls her performance "amazing", and Lionel Richime adds that she "killed it".

Michael J. Woodard chose The Beatles' "Golden Slumbers" for his solo and performed "Angel in Blue Jeans" by Train with train frontman Pat Monahan. Luke is blown away and says she's the only one who nailed it from top to bottom. He took a risk by not following Bones' advice, and it paid off.

For the final duet of the night, Nettles teamed with Gabby Barrett to sing Sugarland's "Stay".

Kay Kay came through with what Lionel Richie referred to as "poise" as she delivered Rihanna's "Love On The Brain". The first person to make it through is Cade, followed by Michelle, Dennis, Gabby, Jonny, Michael, and Catie.
