American Idol Wiki

This page shows the top three contestants of each season of American Idol.


Due to the format in Season 14, Rayvon Owen's fourth place elimination was not revealed until the end of the Top 4 episode. Therefore, he performed his songs for all three rounds and had his hometown visit package shown as well—thus rendering him equivocal to the Top 3. Meanwhile, JAX was cut at the beginning of the next episode before performing again. Therefore, they performed an equal amount of times.
Due to the format shift of Season 18, episodes were condensed. Instead of the standard Top 3, there was a Top 5 followed by a triple elimination of Jonny West, Dillon James, and Francisco Martin, which reduced the contenders down to a Top 2. Thus, all three technically tied for third place.
