“212 (Top 14)” – After the “American Idol” Top 20 tackled solo and celebrity duet performances, the judges narrowed down the field, revealing the Top 14 finalists. Now, they are handing over the reigns to America, who will vote to crown the next “American Idol.” In this episode, the Top 14 contestants will perform on the iconic Idol stage for the first time, in hopes of winning over the hearts of viewers and being voted through to the next phase of the competition. The search for America’s next superstar continues on The ABC Television Network, SUNDAY, APRIL 14 (8:00–10:01 p.m. EDT), streaming and on demand.

Voting will open at the top of the show on Sunday, April 14 at 8:00 p.m. EDT, and will close the following morning, Monday, April 15 at 9:00 a.m. EDT. You can vote online at AmericanIdol.com/vote, in the American Idol app or via text. You can vote 10 times per contestant, per method.

Helping to determine who America will ultimately vote to become the next singing sensation are music industry legends and all-star judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Emmy® Award-winning host and producer Ryan Seacrest hosts the beloved series, and famed multimedia personality Bobby Bones acts as in-house mentor.
