The first of the Final Judgements for the top 24 aired last night (Sunday 28), and the remaining contestants have their fate in the judges' hands tonight. Here's who's made it through so far…

Who went home on American Idol last night?

It was the last chance for contestants to prove that they deserved to be in the top 24.

Sunday’s episode marked the end of the road for a few contestants.

Alex Miller, 17, tried his best with a unique take on Merle Haggard’s 'Silver Wings', but fell short of the next round.

Meanwhile fan favourite Amanda Mena, 18, got sent home after missing the top notes in Celine Dion’s “All By Myself.”

Anthony Guzman and Murphy also had to pack their bags after failing to impress the judges.

The episode ended on a huge cliffhanger, as Alanis Sophia, 19, and Casey Bishop, 15, awaited their results in tonight's episode.
