In a surprise move, American Idol
will announce some of this season's Top 24 semifinalists in tomorrow night's two-hour episode, which will air from 8pm.
Tomorrow's episode will also feature the final Hollywood round, where the remaining 71 singers perform in front of Simon, Randy, Kara and Ellen one last time. Immediately after the performances, the judges will deliberate and give a partial announcement on who makes it to the Top 24.
So that's what they're doing with the two hours.
As always, the rest of the Top 24 will be announced on Wednesday night's episode, from 9pm. Question, kids: is this move a sensible one? Will it make you watch the last day of the Hollywood episodes, or will you still skip it and just read up on the announcements later?
