[Spoiler alert: American Idol 2023 spoilers ahead regarding the top 10 contestants.]

How 8 contestants likely move forward during the Judges’ Song Contest on ‘American Idol’ 2023

It’s time for the Judges’ Song Contest for the American Idol 2023 top 10 singers. During the episode, each of the top 10 is presented with three song options — one from each of the judges. The contestant chooses one of the songs to sing without knowing which judge chose the song. The judge who chose the song performed then attains a point. By the end of the episode, the judge with the most points gets to choose one singer to stay in the competition.

Other outlets continue to report how the top 10 singers become the top seven on Monday, May 1, 2023. But Ryan Seacrest mentioned the top 10 will actually become the top eight. It’s likely that America can vote for the top seven competitors while the eighth competitor moving forward is chosen by the judge with the most points.

Fans on Reddit agree with this assessment.

“They will have Judges’ Song contest tomorrow and whoever wins will get to save one artist I think, so 7 + 1,” the fan wrote.

These contestants made the top 10

When is the ‘American Idol’ 2023 finale?
