After agonizing deliberations during Hollywood Week, the American Idol judges narrowed it down to the Top 40 contenders for Season 12. Now, the guys and the girls are battling it out in Las Vegas, where they get the chance to perform on the Cirque du Soleil stage at The Mirage Resort! 

 

Not surprisingly, this year’s Vegas round is getting a brand new twist, as the men and women are once again split into groups. On Thursday, February 21, ten of the Top 20 guys faced the judges, but only five were able to make it through to the next round.
