Long-time American Idol host Ryan Seacrest announced the Top 10 contestants for the 2021 season of Idol during the episode that aired on April 12, 2021. The remaining contestants moved on in a new round, competing for their chance to be the next American Idol.

Instead of sending all of the voted off contestants home, the six remaining contestants were able to perform for the American Idol judges in the hopes of securing one of two Wildcard spots.

Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and guest judge Paula Abdul ultimately decided the fate of each of the contestants. Abdul sat in for Luke Bryan after he was diagnosed with COVID-19 and was not able to attend the first live show of the season.
