'American Idol' Will Go on a Two-Week Hiatus After Tonight - Here's Why

Following tonight’s episode, the ABC reality competition series will be going on a two-week hiatus with the next episode airing on Sunday, May 2.

The reason for the hiatus is the airing of the 2021 Oscars this coming weekend and the elimination of Monday night episodes. Beginning on May 2, American Idol will go back to a one episode a week format.

After the results of the comeback show are announced, the Top 10 contestants will perform songs from the renowned Disney songbook in hopes of securing America’s real-time vote. The episode will air live across the country so that everyone is given a chance to vote before the end of the night.

The top seven finalists will be revealed at the end of the episode on May 2!
