(Las Vegas, NV) — The popular tv singing contest, “American Idol” is coming back to Las Vegas.
Forty semi-finalists on the Fox reality competition show are on the Las Vegas Strip this week–along with judges Randy Jackson, Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, and Keith Urban.
Elimination rounds got underway Tuesday at Cirque du Soleil’s Love theater at The Mirage.
Over the next two weeks, 10 women and 10 men will be eliminated. That will leave 20 competitors in the running for the “Idol” title. Those names will be announced on the February 28th show.
The first two live shows will be broadcast from Las Vegas on March 5th and 6th, before production returns to Los Angeles.
