    HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - "American Idol 2018" continued its journey, closing out Hollywood Week with the solo round before sending the remaining contestants on to the Showcase, their first chance to perform in front of a full audience.

    From there, the 50 remaining contestants sat down, one-by-one, with judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan for their Final Judgment.

    It was a bit of an emotional roller coaster as several fan favorites were sent home and others made it through to the next round.
