In Episode 15 of "American Idol" Season 15, judges picked their choices and 10 other contestants competed for the wildcard night. 

The panel selected the eccentric rocker, Dalton Rapattoni, Olivia Rox, La'Porsha Renae, and Trent Harmon, as reported by Vulture. As a result, they are all exempted from performing on the next episode which puts them on the safe side. 

Meanwhile, four will be sent home later. What is the evaluation for the 10 remaining performers? Some totally nailed it while some might be unanimously saying goodbye to the "Idol" journey.

The breakdown of performance started with Manny Torres who sang "Master Blaster" by Stevie Wonder. They wrote that there was nothing special about his performance and he might be removed from the contest. Meanwhile, they said that they were not sure about Gianna Isabella's rendition of "I Put a Spell on You" by Annie Lennox.

On the other hand, they straightforwardly stated that Tristan McIntosh and Thomas Straightfellow could both be going home on the elimination. However, they thought otherwise about Avalon Young, whom they commended for singing "Yo (Excuse Me Miss)" by Chris Brown.

Other performers, namely, Jenn Blosil, Lee Jean, Sonika Vaid, and Jeneve Rose Mitchell got an average kind of review while they think Mackenzie Bourg nailed his performance.

The final 10 will be announced on the next episode of "American Idol" and Refinery revealed that Kelly Clarkson will be there.
