In a new twist for American Idol 2013 Season 12, this year all of the Top 40 contestants' solo performances were shown on air over four 'sudden death' rounds at the Las Vegas Cirque du Soleil Beatles LOVE stage at the Mirage hotel & casino.


The Top 40 contestants were split into four groups of 10, alternating guys and girls. Each Wednesday and Thurday night for two weeks, 10 singers would perform. At the end of then night, the American Idol judges selected five to move on to the Season 12 Top 20. The other five were sent home. In the case of a tie, mentor and music producer Jimmy Iovine would choose who would stay and who would be eliminated.


After four Las Vegas sudden death rounds, the official list of American Idol 2013 Top 20 contestants was announced as:


Adriana Latonio
Amber Holcomb
Angela Miller
Aubrey Cleland
Breana Steer
