LOS ANGELES (AP) - The top 13 singers have been selected on “American Idol.”

Hollie Cavanaugh, Colton Dixon, Heejun Han, Jermaine Jones, Skylar Laine, Joshua Ledet, Shannon Magrane, Phillip Phillips, Jessica Sanchez and Elise Testone were revealed Thursday as the singers with the most viewer votes after Tuesday and Wednesday’s performances.

Once the viewer-selected finalists were revealed, the show’s judges picked five of the 15 remaining semifinalists to deliver a last-chance tune. The judges chose Erika Van Pelt, Jeremy Rosado and Deandre Brackensick as their “wild card” selections.

The contestants will return to the stage next Wednesday.

The male singers will perform the music of Stevie Wonder, while the female finalists will pay tribute to the late Whitney Houston.
