How does the American Idol wildcard show work?


in Reality Television

Joe Private asked:

I read that the 4th place vote-getter gets into the wildcard show. (why didn’t they announce this person on the show instead of telling everyone they were going home.) The other singers are judges choices and the total number of participants may be 10, 11 or 12.

This is where I’m confused. Does American vote or do the judges determine the best singers for those final 3 slots based on their performance in this show?

Why is American Idol being so vague about the wildcard show?



You’re right. They are being so vague. They haven’t explained to us how the wild card show is going to work. I guess we just have to wait and see. Ryan should have explained it tonight. Oh well, we’re getting used to waiting!!!! :)


I was wondering the same thing and then I found this answer on another question about wildcard. Here is the link:
