Season 20 of ABC’s “American Idol” is in full swing as the live shows officially air simultaneously coast-to-coast on Sunday, April 24th.
During the episode in which the top 14 contestants were announced, 10 contestants were chosen directly and four of the bottom 10 were then saved by judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.
Perry said the decision was unanimous entertainment tonight.
“We picked our four and it was unanimous, which is great,” Perry told the outlet. “Because this season has been interesting because we’ve had some real public arguments about a couple of contestants — like Sam Moss and Grace Franklin.”
However, fans didn’t agree with all of her decisions.
Fans believe some contestants were robbed
Fans took to Twitter and Reddit after the episode aired to chat about which contestants they felt should have made it through.
“HOW did @KatyrahLove not make American Idol’s Top 14? Shocked but sure it won’t be the last of this beautiful and talented young lady?” one person tweeted.
Another, however, that Cadence Baker and Jacob Moran were stripped of their place on the show.
“20 down to 14 yuck”, reads a tweet. Cadence and Jacob robbed! #American Idol.”
in one GoldDerby surveyHer fans thought Jacob Moran was the contestant who got robbed from the Top 14 reveal.
People on a Reddit thread agreed.
“I think Jacob was robbed last night. He was so amazing” the post reads.
one person replied, “I was surprised and felt sorry for him, it seems particularly hard to hear one night that you’re the best singer in the competition and the next night you weren’t voted in the top 10 and you aren’t be saved.”
Fans also shared other things they don’t understand about the show following the Top 14 reveal show in a Reddit thread.

another wrote“Why do the judges give each contestant a standing ovation and refuse to give them honest feedback?”
