American Idol returned on Sunday night (May 3), once again broadcasting from the homes of the cast and contestants around the country. Live to tape from 25 locations, Sunday night’s episode unveiled the Top 10 and showcased the remaining contestants’ talents.
Making the most of the situation, producers shipped each contestant equipment and had them perform from home alongside the Idol band. The judges, Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie and Katy Perry, as well as host, Ryan Seacrest, and in-house mentor, Bobby Bones, also appeared from their homes.
Phillip Phillips, the winner of Season 11 of American Idol, returned to the show for a special performance of his hit song “Home.” The song was a perfect fit as this week’s episode is themed “home,” with contestants singing songs that remind them of home while at home.
Sunday night’s show unveiled the Top 10, and America’s vote will narrow it down to the Top 7.
