On Sunday night, American Idol contestants kicked off their performances alongside celebrities. And, we were not disappointed when Jason Mraz, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, Brett Young, Elle King, and Shaggy, graced the stage to duet with half of the Top 20 contestants in front of judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan.
Sadly, at the end of the night three contestants — Kate Barnette, Shawn Robinson, and Bumbly — were sent home, failing to make it into the Top 14. While fans were impressed with the talent level of the contestants’ performances, one moment that definitely stood out during the night was Laine Hardy’s brother making a surprise appearance.
Cue the tears!
