American Idol Season 21 episode 17 release date is here, and we are excited for the performances that await us. We previously witnessed the elimination of Lucy Love and Nutsa. Now, we witnessed in the sixteenth episode how difficult it was for the judges to choose and foretell who would be sent home.

The judges have the authority to help contestants advance to the Top 7 positions, even though America has the power to choose the winners in the Top 7. For this live show, the judges will participate in the song selection process.

This post will reveal the American Idol Season 21 Episode 17 release date and streaming guide along with the recap of American Idol Season 21 Episode 16, so let’s get tight! When given a choice between three songs, Zachariah Smith chose “Wanted Dead or Alive” by Bon Jovi. The song was chosen by Lionel for him. Lionel described it as a terrific act.

The crowd, according to Katy, adored him, and he indeed stayed true to himself. Next up was Haven Madison. She selects “Only Exception” from Paramore. Katy claimed she chose it so that her voice would be both powerful and tender.

Luke remarked that he admires the way she shares her story through her song. She possesses what Lionel called the “it” factor. Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing” was the choice of We Ani. 


Lionel stated she owned the song, and Katy added that she exceeded their expectations by going above and beyond. Radiohead’s “High and Dry” is Oliver Steele’s selection. His singing and playing of the guitar were both superb, according to Luke and Katy.

“Colder Weather” by the Zac Brown Band is sung by Warren Peay. He believes Luke chose the song, but Lionel actually did. Lionel claimed to have owned the situation. 

Katy thinks that his performances will reveal all of his cards. Luke deemed it a wise song selection. Iam Tongi initially chose the Extreme song “More Than Words,”  but the voice instructors push him to sing Louis Armstrong’s “What A Wonderful World” instead. Finally, he chooses “What a Wonderful World.”

Luke chose a song by Iam. Luke claimed that he did an outstanding job. Katy asks him to continue performing “More Than Worlds” for her. She claimed that they had taken them somewhere else and that his presence made the world a better place.

“Wasted On You” by Morgan Wallen is performed by Marybeth Byrd. Although she guessed Luke, Lionel chose her song. According to Katy, she is the butterfly of the show.  This, according to Luke, was her shining moment.

Lewis Capaldi’s song “Somebody You Loved” is performed by Tyson Venegas. Tyson correctly predicted Katy. She chose his tune. She claimed that this time on stage, he had changed completely. He is the total deal, she claimed.

The competitors, according to Luke, are feeding off one another. Vince Gill’s “Go Rest High on the Mountain” is performed by Megan Danielle. Though Luke chooses her song, she guesses Lionel.


He claimed that he merely thought the music was ideal for her. She has the capacity to touch people, according to Lionel. He described her as a gifted storyteller.

Heaven-sent, as Katy described it. Colin Stough is the performer who goes on last. He chose Staind’s “It’s Been Awhile” as his song. Katy chose his song. This year’s judges’ song competition was won by Katy. Meganop, Haven, Warren, We Ani, Colin, I am, and Zachariah has made the top 7.
