All of The Acts in American Idol's Top 14

To kick off the last round of the first live show, host Ryan Seacrest began to gradually announce the first 10 acts heading through to the Top 14, voted for by audiences at home.

The lucky 10 acts secure in the "Victory Zone" then got the chance to perform in celebration, teasing what audiences can expect to see in the weeks to come.

Then, with just four places left, judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richie were left with the difficult task of filling the final spots.

First to sail through to the Top 10 was Ava Maybee, who celebrated by performing "Cuz I Love You" by Lizzo. She was followed by Christian Guardino who sang "Creep" by Radiohead and Lady K, who sang "Bust Your Windows" by Jazmine Sullivan.

The act who secured the final spot in the Top 10 was Fritz Hager who celebrated by singing "Golden" by Harry Styles.

The 10 acts who sailed through to the Victory Zone and therefore the live shows were:

  • Ava Maybee
  • Christian Guardino
  • Lady K
  • Huntergirl
  • Dan Marshall
  • Leah Marlene
  • Nicolina
  • Noah Thompson
  • Emyrson Flora
  • Fritz Hager

Sadly, 10 acts then found themselves in the dreaded "danger zone": where they had to perform for the judges who had the difficult spot of granting just four spots in the Top 14.

Sadly, Allegra Miles, Cameron Whitcomb, Katyrah Love, Candence Baker, Sage, Jay, Jacob Moran, Ellie Rowe, Mike Parker, and Tristen Gressett were the unlucky acts who found themselves vulnerable.

Cameron Whitcomb did not secure the judges' votes with his performance of "If It Hadn't Been For Love."

Also saying goodbye to the competition was Katryah Love, who performed "Through the Fire" as her final track on the Idol stage.

The third contestant to narrowly miss out on a spot in the finals was Cadence Baker.

Unfortunately, her performance of Whitney Houston's "I'm Your Baby Tonight" was not enough to win the judges over.

Jacob Moran performed "Rise" by Idol judge Katy Perry but despite the brave move to cover a judge's own song, it was not enough and Moran was sent home.

Contestant Ellie Rowe was next to be eliminated, following her performance of Kodaline's "All I Want."

Last but not least, Sage was the final contestant to say goodbye to their shot at winning American Idol as unfortunately, her rendition of Allen Stones' "Brown Eyed Lover" was not enough to keep her in the competition.

However, for platinum-ticket winners Jay and Allegra Miles, there was some seriously good news.

Miles found herself in the judge's good books with her performance of her original song "Tainted" and Jay sailed through with his performance of Imagine Dragons' "Believer."

Mike Parker was also in the good books, receiving a spot in the Top 14 with his performance of "Bed on Fire" by Teddy Swims.

Tristen Gressett also received some good news and was the last to survive the danger zone, after he stunned the judges with his rendition of Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way."

American Idol airs Sunday and Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Episodes are available to stream on Hulu the following day.
