TVOM: "All audition roads for this season of American Idol have lead our wannabes to this moment: a showcase performance in front of a live audience at the legendary House of Blues. According to Ryan Seacrest, the winner of Season 14 will be “following in the footsteps of giants” – and we have previous winners flash across the screen to prove it. (Minus the random Taylor Hicks, of course. #SoulPatrol Imagine how annoying that hashtag would’ve been had Twitter been around back in the day?) Our contestants have one final performance to seal their Idol fate. From the final 48, 12 boys and 12 girls will be chosen… after walking down a nearly 12 mile runway (so it seems) to face the judges. Over the next two episodes, the top 24 will be revealed."
