N.A. Yay! You're back!!!  :hearts:

I agree.. I think it will be a female winner this year. The two who really impressed me, Crystal Bowersox and Lilly Scott. On the guy side, Andrew Garcia and Casey James.

Tory, I re-watched last night's show. The one who is a waitress is Didi Benami and the other one you mention is the last one of the day, Crystal Bowersox. I didn't notice her teeth until I replayed it. (I was wrong in the other thread.)

Wonder who we will see tonight. ???

I agree, is he cannon fodder? There certainly is more fodder to come, 12 more for certain.

All in all we got seven confirmed names from the leaked list. However most of the names on the list were mentioned one way or another or had a feature but there were a few not even mentioned last night. Chris Golightly, John Park, Lacey Brown, Paige Miles and Tyler Grady. I could have missed them but they did not get a replay of their auditions as some of the others certainly did. Another one who was barely mentioned was Didi Benami.

Shelby Dressel was an interesting cut, Simon saying it was the wrong decision. Another that I really liked was Jermaine Purifoy but he's not on the list.

The seven confirmed:
Aaron Kelly, Casey James, Katelyn Epperly, Lee DeWyze, Michael Lynche, Todrick Hall, Didi Venami.

What did Y'all think?

I think they should have an episode where they do a recap on all the top 24's performance (auditions, hollywood round) to give us a better idea who America is actually voting for.

Ellen announced on her show today that Shelby Dressel will be on her show next week as well as a guy she really liked that didn't make it.  I think it will be the last one that didn't make it on the show.  I tried to take notes on the ones we knew made it but struggled on so many names.  No clue who they are. :groan:

While I don't think Idol will ever do that, I agree that it would be nice.  Last year was worse since it was more of a one-and-done deal (or one-and-F12).  However, one performance and 1-2 days to decide isn't enough time to make an accurate decision.  Some of those folks weren't even shown during the audition & Hollywood rounds.

Fortunately, there have been contestants that have survived this disadvantage on the way to the Top 12, but it still would be nice to see some sort of Top 24 preview show.  Especially if you're Tim Urban, who replaced the recently disqualified Chris Golightly.
Every reality star is someone's favorite

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

I wish they would have had a more organized show to give us the final 24. I tried to keep track as well but even with a list to check names it was impossible. Especially with the batch of no names that passed by in mere seconds. I don't understand one of the rejectees, Angela Martin, were the other girls better than her? She seemed at the top of her game. I wish she'd been given a chance to perform with the top 24.

Lilly Scott has been someone I've liked but her final song on stage made clear to me what the judges mean when they say you picked the wrong song. Didn't like it at all.

Is it just me? I'm thankful that the finalists are done for now because Ellen is becoming annoying with her never ending, I won't keep you waiting because I know how disappointing it is.... on and on and on! Funny once or twice but not so much after that.

This seems like it might be the year for a girl to win AI.

Chris Golightly: "This is not fair; I don't know what to do"
01:00 PM

When the American Idol machine starts moving, nobody gets to stand in the way.

Not even one of the semifinalists.

Chris Golightly is learning that lesson the hard way this week.

"This is not fair; I don't know what to do," he said when reached by phone this morning.

Chris originally made Season 9's Top 24 -- he was even shown in the group shot with Ryan Seacrest near the end of Wednesday's show. But when the 12 male semifinalists were shown individually, Chris had been replaced by Tim Urban.

"Everything was fine when I made the Top 24," Chris says. But things quickly went sour. Shortly after Chris got the news that he'd made the cut, he says a former manager named Lawrence Franklin emailed 19 Entertainment claiming that Chris was under a recording contract.

The other side:

Chris Golightly was under contract, says recording company head
02:37 PM

Lawrence Franklin of Dream Projects Entertainment disputes Chris Golightly's claim that he was not subject to an existing recording contract when he auditioned for American Idol last year, but he says that he would have worked with the show's producers so that Chris could have continued in the competition.

"Chris was still under contract with Dream Projects Entertainment," Franklin says. Franklin says Chris was part of a vocal group called D.R.E.A.M. 5 and claims that the singer had signed a new, two-year recording contract on May 30, 2009, less than two months before he first auditioned for Idol.

Franklin says he contacted 19 Entertainment in January after learning that Chris was appearing on the show.

Angela will be on Ellen's show tomorrow.  I agree that Ellen's comments were getting old quick.   I guess the singers we haven't seen must have been really good.  Wish we could have heard them all sing.  :groan:

I'm with you bee, I wish we'd have heard more of the auditions.

Here's Ellen's show, it was heartwarming to see Angela get some help for her career.  :tup:

Shelby will be on Ellen tomorrow.  Wonder what she will be offered based on what they are doing for Angela.  Sorry using first names only because I'm too lazy to look up their last name. :waves:

Shelby was not offered anything other than the chance to sing on Ellen.  Ellen did encourage her not to give up and try out again next year.
