And next Thursday, the revamped wild-card round will bring back 12 booted contestants vying for the final three spots in the top 12.At press time, a spokesperson for the show said the details on the format of the wild-card round were not yet available.Whoever advances to the top 12 following Thursday's show will join the three top contenders from last week's first round of cuts: Gokey, Alexis Grace and Michael Sarver.
Joy auditioned for the eighth season of American Idol in Salt Lake City, Utah, in 2008, coincidentally on her birthday.
She sang "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man" by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II.
With funding by her fans through Kickstarter, Joy was able to compose her self-titled debut EP.
Backers of the project received the EP on April 27, 2012.
But things crank up again Wednesday with group-two auditions, which will yield the second trio of singers going on to the show's top 12.
