In the latest episode of American Idol, viewers witnessed the ultimate showdown between contestants as they competed for a spot in the upcoming season finale, just one week away.

The remaining contenders of Season 22, Jack Blocker, Abi Carter, Will Moseley, Emmy Russell, and Triston Harper, all took center stage, each determined to secure their place in the finale.

Adding to the excitement, country star Kane Brown joined the episode as a mentor for the Top 5. Together, they navigated through Disney night, with each contestant delivering performances of two songs.

Fan-favorite Triston Harper wowed both the audience and judges with his two stellar performances. He started off strong with an impressive rendition of “Almost There” from Princess and the Frog and then he concluded with another breathtaking performance, this time with the beloved Disney song “Life Is A Highway,” a song recorded by country supergroup Rascal Flatts for the 2006 Disney movie Cars.

Triston Harper’s journey to the Top 5 of the competition has been incredible, especially considering he’s the youngest contestant this season, at just 15 years old. Since his audition in February, where he impressed everyone with a cover of Jason Isbell’s “Cover Me Up,” he’s captured viewers’ hearts nationwide. With the finale just around the corner, fans are feeling the tension, eagerly anticipating who will win this season’s intense battle.

Triston’s calm under pressure belied his age. He confidently took the stage and delivered some of the best performances of the season. The voting window was open throughout the two-hour semi-final episode, giving America the chance to decide which three contestants will advance to next week’s finale.

Unfortunately, Triston Harper’s performances weren’t enough to earn him a spot in the finale and his American Idol journey came to an end Sunday night.
