In the world's ultimate talent search, where the eyes of a nation are upon the best undiscovered singers in the country, where the audience has the power to make or break you, and where a million-dollar recording contract is on the line, there is only one rule: If you can sing it, bring it.

Final Judgment: Part 2
February 23

Last night on American Idol, fourteen singers made it through to the semfinal round, with one singer - Adam Brock - leaving us hanging. Will he join the 24? Who else will join with him? And what elimination leads to a shocking turn of events? All we know for certain is that by the end of the night, we will have the 24 singers who, next week, will sing for your vote.

Wynn Las Vegas

We pick up where we left off yesterday, with Adam Brock awaiting his fate... Randy can feel the joy in his soul. .... HE IS THROUGH!

And then there were nine.

Next up, Jeremy Rosado, who developed quick rapports with everyone he worked with, and he became a star with his performance of "I Know You Won't" by Carrie Underwood. He says that he's ready. The judges... also say he's ready! And then there were eight.

Shannon Magrane struggled through Hollywood Week, but she made amends with "What A Wonderful World". Will "The Trouble With Love Is" by Kelly Clarkson cap it all off? "Goosies." Thanks for that, Jennifer. She's IN. And then there were seven.

Scott Dangerfield earned a spot in Hollywood last year, but had to pull out. He's here to finish the job this year with "Folsom Prison Blues" by Johnny Cash. He says he was happy with his performance... but he accepted his criticism. And now he'll accept his fate. He's OUT.

Skylar Laine is about to find out if the top 24 has room for TWO country mavens. Her case is proven with "Fancy" by Reba. It wasn't up to HER standards... but it was up to the judges'. And then there were six.

Good news keeps coming for Hallie Day, Chase Likens, and returning contestant Aaron Marcellus. And then there were three.

Deandre Brackensick was cut from the final judgment last year. Will that falsetto carry him through "This Woman's Work" by Kate Bush? The judges loved it... but did they love it enough? They DID! And then there were two.

Next up, Jermaine Jones had his mother throughout her all. He makes no secret of being a momma's boy. His final judgment: "I Believe In You And Me" by the late great Whitney Houston. Before his ultimate moment, his composure begins to crumble. He gathers what he has left and faces his fate... He did not make the top 24 this time.

One spot left for the girls, one more for the guys.

First up, Ariel Sprague, Shelby Tweten, and Hollie Cavanagh.... Taking the final spot for the ladies... HOLLIE.

That leaves Eben Franckewicz and David "Mr. Steal Your Girl" Leathers. Two of the youngest contestants. One of these guys will round out the top 24... That one... EBEN.

So to review... Your Top 24 are...

- DeAndre Brackensick (17; San Jose)
- Adam Brock (27; Washington, PA)
- Baylie Brown (22; Krum, TX)
- Hollie Cavanagh (18; McKinney, TX)

- Eben Franckewitz (15; Loveland, OH)
- Creighton Fraker (28; Queens, NY)
- Reed Grimm (26; Ellsworth, WI)
- Heejun Han (22; Flushing, NY)
- Jen Hirsh (25; Agoura Hills, CA)
- Haley Johnsen (22; Beaverton, OR)
- Skylar Laine (17; Brandon, MS)

- Elise Testone (28; Mount Pleasant, SC)
- Erika Van Pelt (28; South Kingstown, RI)
- Brielle von Hugel (17; Staten Island, NY)

And that's your Top 24.... OR IS IT? There's ONE MORE TWIST.

The judges have felt compelled to reinstate ONE more guy to make it a top 25. It will be ... Richie Law... Jermaine Jones... Johnny Keyser... or David Leathers Jr.

Next week, the MEN will take the stage Tuesday... the WOMEN will take the stage Wednesday. And the finalists get their tickets punch on Thursday. America.... They're ALL YOURS.

We end the show with Steven Tyler's man-boobs going swimming.
