Top 12 Men
Major, major spoiler alert for all of you American Idol fans out there. If you want to be surprised in a couple of weeks and don’t want all the intrigue of the audition episodes completely drained, read no further. What we have here is the rumored Top 24 for season seven of American Idol. Last week, the final Hollywood episodes were filmed in Los Angeles and, according to “JoesPlace” (a reliable inside source), the 24 finalists have been selected. Granted, this is still a rumor at this point and should not be construed as official, but I’m willing to bet this is right on. JoesPlace, before the season even started, but together an almost perfect list of the Hollywood top 50. So, again, Spoiler Alert! Go no further if you want to keep the top 24 a surprise.
Top 12 Girls
Kristy Lee Cook
Top 12 Guys
Quite a few familiar names up there, especially on the female side. Here are the people we’ve seen over the first four audition episodes that have, supposedly, made the top 24:
Alaina Whitaker: A good looking girl with a big voice who Simon said wasn’t as good as she thinks she is. Well, that was still good enough, I guess.
Brooke White: A good looking blonde girl who has never seen an rated R movie in her life.
Kady Malloy: A good looking lady (are we sensing a pattern here?) who, I thought, gave maybe the most impressive female audition we’ve seen this season. She’s also a vocal impressionist who showed off an incredible Britney Spears impersonation (of the singing, that is, not of the underpants-less, child-neglecting, paparazzi-balling harlot we all now know).
Kristy Lee Cook: Kristy Lee is the sweet-as-pie Oregonian who rides horses. It’s come out in the open since her Idol audition that Cook was actually signed to a record label in 2001, which means Idol may have brought her in as a ringer.
Carly Smithson: The tattooed Irish lady who was denied a trip to Hollywood a couple of seasons ago due to visa issues.
David Archuleta: This is the teenager with the raspy voice who once suffered from vocal paralysis. I didn’t think he’d make it into the top 24, but I like his potential.
Michael Johns: It would have been an upset had Johns not made the top 24. This Aussie has a great soul voice and, I think, gave the most impressive audition of the season so far.
