American Idol XIV 2015 was down to top 12 girls on Thursday night after top 12 guys performed on Wednesday. The number of contestants will be narrowed down to just 12 after the three-episode semi-finals.

Semi-finals Recap:

Lovey James kicked off the night with her rendition of OneRepublic's "Love Runs Out" but it was a poor performance despite nigh energy and praises from the judges.

Adanna Duru took on the song, "Rather Be" by Clean Bandit and Jesse Glynne. It was a decent performance and Keith Urban thought it was a good rendition.

Alexis Gomez sang Miranda Lambert's "Gunpowder and Lead". It was a solid performance.

Joey Cook took on Keith Urban's "Somebody Like You" and it was a brave move as Keith is one of the judges of the show. It was a good performance and judges were all praise for her rendition.

Katherine Winston sang "Safe and Sound" by Taylor Swift. It was a decent performance, and Katherine surely has a sweet voice.

Shannon Berthiaume sang Pink's "Who Knew". She has a unique voice and managed to put up a decent performance.

Loren Lott took on JoJo's "Note to God" and it was another decent performance of the night.

Shi Scott sang "Umbrella" by Rihanna. She made the song her own but it was a poor rendition. Judges weren't impressed too.

Maddie Walker rendered Shania Twain's "Love Gets Me Everytime". It was a good performance though judges were of the opinion that it was not the right song for her.

Sarina-Joi Crowe took on "Something's Goin' Down" by Jessie J and it was a beautiful rendition. She looked confident and performed beautifully.

Jax rendered Cher's "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)". It was another beautiful performance. The judges loved her rendition and so too the audience.

Tyana Jones was the last girl to perform on Thursday. She took on Meghan Trainor's "Lips Are Moving" and it was a very good rendition. She has an incredible voice and is expected to go a long way.

Going by the performances on Thursday, it looks like Shi, Shannon, Lovey, Adanna and Alexis will be in danger zone, while Sarina-Joi, Jax and Tyana should be safe. However, it is America who will decide their fate in the competition, as their votes will determine who goes to the next round.
