American Idol judges Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, and Randy Jackson narrowed down the competition to 24 contestants on last night's show, but with a spin—one more male contestant will be given the chance to join the semi-finalists.
Seemingly eliminated contestants Jermaine Jones, Johnny Keyser, Richie Law, and David Leathers will be given a second chance to take one more step forward towards their Idol dreams and join the rest of the pack on the musical journey.
The 13th male contestant will be revealed next Tuesday (Feb. 28) and will then join the rest of the male contestants during the show's first live event of the season. The 12 female contestants will then perform their first live performances on the following night.
