This year, the voting process began quite early than usual. It gave fans a chance to vote for their favorite artist.

The Disney Aulani Resort in Hawaii hosted the pre-taped performances of the contestants. Out of 24, 12 got to shine with the rest 12, designated to perform in the next episodes.

Amongst those 12 were, Mike Parker, Tristen Gressett, and more. We will put the list below. The judges put their feedback but the contestant’s fate will now be decided through votes.
