American Idol 2013 returns this week with the Top 40 competing for their lives in Las Vegas. Each night, 10 contestants will take the stage to perform one song in front of the American Idol judges and a live audience.
After the hopefuls have performed, the judges will cut five singers in 'sudden death' eliminations. Those who are lucky enough to survive will move on to become part of the American Idol Season 12 Top 20.
Will your favorites make it through the Las Vegas rounds? Tune in with us here every Wednesday and Thursday night for our live American Idol recaps!
