Emmy Russell and Triston Harper are sent home and reveal the Top 3

The contestant pool for Season 22 of ‘American Idol’ has officially landed in the Top 3.

With the coronation of the “Idol” champion just a week away, it was time to take on the finalists in the penultimate public vote on Sunday night. Luckily, the Disney Network also let the Top 5 have some family fun at the Walt Disney Resort with their moms and provided some extra free advertising for the House of Mouse before potentially sending them home.

Yes, we made it to Disney Week and the five finalists sang songs from the Disney, Pixar and Marvel repertoire with original and licensed music to create brand synergy and make viewers nostalgic for the films they couldn’t stop rewatching as kids. Judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan also joined in on the fun, with the ever-theatrical Perry in full Cinderella outfit, Gus Gus accompaniment and all.

Abi Carter, Emmy Russell, Jack Blocker, Triston Harper and Will Moseley took the stage with two songs each to convince America to take them into the top three, and at the end of the two-hour episode, two beloved contestants were sent home sent.

Here’s what everyone performed and who was eliminated in episode 17.
