Teddy Swims, Lauren Spencer Smith & Paul Russell to Perform on ‘American Idol’

American Idol is down to its top 24, and next week’s episode will feature a star-studded list of performers.

Teddy Swims, Lauren Spencer Smith and Paul Russell are all set to take the stage on the three-hour April 14 episode of the singing competition series, where the top 20 will be revealed.

Swims is fresh off a Hot 100 chart-topper with his viral hit “Lose Control,” off his 2023 album, I’ve Tried Everything but Therapy (Part 1). “It’s only 1 o’clock, but it’s 5 somewhere, ain’t it?,” Teddy Swims marveled to Billboard after “Lose Control” crowned the tally. “I called my beautiful mother [and] said, ‘We did it.’ I couldn’t be more grateful. I feel so protected. I feel like God’s favorite kid right now.”
