Video: ‘American Idol’ Top 11 performances & advice from Bobby Bones


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)- Season 3 of American Idol has been full of surprises, and Sunday night’s episode entitled, “On with the Show: Homeward Bound” was no different!

Viewers voted to reduce the Top 20 down to the Top 10, but they were in for a shocking twist! During the second home-themed episode, judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan used their power to save 17-year-old singer, Makayla Phillips, from elimination! That’s right, this means that the Top 10 has officially become the Top 11!

American Idol in-house mentor, Bobby Bones, chatted with WOTV to describe his reaction to the extraordinary performances, give viewers a heads up on what to expect, and to share some golden nuggets of advice to the remaining contestants!
