The American Idol Season 18 finale will be filled with familiar faces. The performer, who fine-tuned her skills by singing in and around New York City's subway system, now needs America's votes to keep her journey moving forward on ABC's reality talent competition.

In a fun touch, as the hopefuls belted out numbers plucked from The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast and elsewhere, reigning Idol champion Laine Hardy showed up for his own Disney turn.

The Best Seven contenders getting the most number of votes were selected on Sunday from among best 11 competitors. To cast your vote for Just Sam, text "19" to 21523. The remaining five singers will perform two songs, and real-time voting will determine the next American Idol.

One contestant really stood out.

Martin continued to impress during last night's third stay-at-home episode, in which the contestents were each asked to sing one Disney song and another song dedicated to their mom or mother figure. Season 2 victor, Laine Hardy, returns to perform "Life is a Highway" and share his journey after winning the show a year ago.

Judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richie, as well as host Ryan Seacrest and in-house mentor Bobby Bones are all appearing via video from their homes for the show. Live episodes with performances in front of a crowd were supposed to begin in April, but the COVID-19 crisis forced the show to make changes; Gargano has been performing from her family home on Staten Island.
