The show must go on! American Idolbegan whittling down the competition in a big way on Sunday, and this left some viewers with strong feelings about the season.

Sunday's Idol began a new round of Showstopper Performances, and marked the start of the judges' unenviable task of cutting the wide field of hopefuls down to just the Top 24.

One of the night's many lucky ones was 17-year-old Hannah Everhart, who grabbed people's attention for her uncanny resemblance to Katy Perry, as well as her seemingly unpolished, take-no-gruff personality.

Last week, Everhart made headlines during the duets round when she was paired with Claudia Conway. Together they delivered a cover of "Sign of the Times," which pushed Everhart to the next round but left Conway packing her bags.

On Sunday's newest Idol, Everhart stepped out of her country music comfort zone and tried her hand at some pop, with a rendition of Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball."
