American Idol: The top 24

by guest bloggers Becky and Bethany

Hello, Hollywood!

It was Hollywood week on American Idol. The potential idols were put through a rigorous lightning round of single and group auditions to give the judges one last look, before they chose the top 24. Now that they’ve narrowed the field to 24 potential idols, it will be up to us America!

Finally! Move over Randy, Paula and Simon.

There weren’t too many surprises in this week’s show. Here are the top 24 candidates:

Background singers Melinda Doolittle and Brandon Rogers are definitely in for the long haul. It’s top 12 for those two.

Sanjaya Malakar moved on, without his sister, and Gina Glockson got another opportunity to wow the judges, though there were definitely others who deserved top-24-status over her.

Philip Stacy made it through, though he didn’t have our support, and Haley Scarndo, Paul Kim, and Jordin Sparks all passed through with leaps and bounds.

Chris Sligh and Blake Lewis made it to the top 24, but they both had better bring the sing, cause the jokes and beat boppin’ won’t take them too much further.

We are fearlessly predicting that AJ Tabaldo and Leslie Hunt will be the first male and female contestants to go home.

There were a few people who made it that we weren’t even aware existed: Stephanie Edwards, Nicole Tranquillo, Jared Cotter, and Amy Krebs. Let’s hope they can make a better impression on the voting public.

Sundance Head and Antonella Barba made it through, though they both had a less than stellar week. Maybe Sundance’s father’s legacy and Antonella’s looks helped push each of them along.

Rounding out the top 24 top competitors are Nick Pedro, Rudy Cardenas, Lakisha Jones, and Alaina Alexander.

Our what-the-$#@!-moment of the evening was the judges passing on Marissa Rhodes for Antonella Barba. Come on judges; turn your hearing aids on. Just because the girl is all legs, doesn’t make her American Idol material.

Until next week folks, we’ll be “idoling!”

I hate both antonella and amanda. they're both nasty little skanks. besides, they were so rude to bailey. i hope antonella gets voted off soon.

I didn't necessarily have strong feelings as to whether Antonella should go through or not, I just felt Marissa was the best or at least top 3 girls in the competition. I was very sad to see her go and I think preformances by Amy, Nicole, and Antonella show that Marissa was so much more vocally talented. I hope she tries out again next year.
