We were out of our seats cheering when Puerto Rican Devin Velez’s name was announced as one of the five males to make it into the top 10 of American Idol’s 12th season. It was clear he would be a front-runner from the moment he hit his first note, but it wasn’t until he belted out an immaculate bilingual version of “Somos Novios” that we knew we’d seen Idol gold.

It was a tense elimination episode on last night’s American Idol. The show started switching up their tactic for revelations and slowly revealed the top three contestants who included, Candice Glover, Angie Miller, and Kree Harrison.

It was a rough night for the top ten as they covered hits from American Idols past winners on last night’s show. While Nicki Minaj decided to arrive fashionably late to the judges panel (a first in Idol history), the show went on without her.

The top 10 guys were serving up eye candy and romance during last night’s American Idol. Starting out the night was one of the judges’ favorites Elijah Liu, who had enough swag to seduce Nicki Minaj right off her seat (she did previously joke about wanting to have his baby after all).

Las Vegas was all about female power on last night’s American Idol! The top ten graced the stage as voting was finally opened up to fans at home. The infamous Zoanette kicked things off with a karaoke-worthy performance of Tina Turner's "What's Love Got to Do With It," which the judges painfully laughed at. Thankfully, that was just the start of the evening.

Sudden death round 2 delivered quite the soul last night on American Idol, when the guys battled it out for the top 10.
