For the first time ever, “American Idol’s” iconic showcase round hits the road, heading to Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawaii, where the show’s top 40 contestants take to the beach for incredible solo performances in front of a live audience and the superstar judge panel. Following the performances, it’s an emotional roller coaster in paradise as the judges sit down with each contestant to reveal their fate, culminating with the show’s top 20 finalists.
The search for America’s next superstar continues on The ABC Television Network, Sunday, March 31 (8 p.m. EDT), streaming and on demand.
Helping to determine whom America will ultimately vote to become the next singing sensation are judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Emmy Award-winning host and producer Ryan Seacrest hosts the series, while famed multimedia personality Bobby Bones acts as in-house mentor.
