American Idol 2022 - Who Was Eliminated Last Night? Top 20 Contestants Revealed

On Sunday, April 17, American Idol watchers were treated to a three-hour program jam-packed with spectacular performances and memorable experiences. The episode included three American Idol alumni: Chayce Beckham, Alejandro Aranda, and Phillip Phillips, in addition to displaying the Top 20 artists. Of course, a night of Idol wouldn’t be complete without a few chuckles — and even a few tears — from judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie.

The popular reality talent show is presently in its 20th season, and the top 20 contestants have just been revealed. But, thus far, who has been knocked off American Idol in 2022?

The singing competition has given fans with a yearly source of entertainment for the past 20 years.

And now that the semi-finalists have been chosen, the show is one step closer to crowning its 20th winner.

Let’s take a look at which contestants are still in the game — and which ones are not.

Who Was Eliminated Last Night? 

In the most recent elimination, Scarlet Ayliz, Danielle Finn, and Sir Blayke were sent home.

Kenedi Anderson, a 17-year-old vocalist from Virginia, was the fourth contestant to withdraw from the competition.

She was dubbed “the biggest star we’ve ever seen” by judge Luke Bryan. Katy Perry was taken aback by the fact that Anderson had not yet been signed to a record label.

Anderson was one of three contestants to receive a platinum ticket, which allowed her to skip the Hollywood round and compete in season 20.

Anderson didn’t say why she dropped out of the competition, but she did say it was due to personal reasons.
