A grand total of 175 televised contestants received a Golden Ticket in Season 17.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Like the previous year, episodes featured auditions from multiple cities instead of featuring one (or occasionally two) city per audition episode.
  • There were no televised unsuccessful contestants in Coeur d'Alene.
  • Only three televised contestants were shown in Denver, the fewest for any city on American Idol ever.
