HOLLYWOOD—71 contestants are left, all trying to become YOUR AMERICAN IDOL! Tonight, we found out some of the 24- the other half will be named Wednesday night.
The singers have been divided into 3 rooms. They are reflecting on the past week-- for some, it's good news-- others are done.
Two rooms make it through, and celebrate in the hallway! Back on stage in front of the judges, to find out their fate. It's the most emotional cut yet! For the first time in Idol history, the final cut will take place at the Kodak Theatre.
Here's the partial list of who you'll be voting for (or not) this season:
- Michael Lynche (26, New York) aka "Big Mike". We have heard he gets removed from the top 24 because his dad talked to the newspaper-- we'll have to see next week if he's still here.
- Didi Benami (23, Texas) She sang a song written by Kara during Hollywood Week. Also, talked about her best friend who died, and she sings in her honor.
- Katelyn Epperly (Chicago Auditions)
- Casey James (27, Texas) cute guy who took off his shirt during auditions. (I'm with you, Kara- he's hot)
- Aaron Kelly (16) aka David Archuleta 2.0
- Lee Dewyze - Illinois guy - had his own band before A.I.
- Todrick Hall -- was on Broadway in 'Color Purple' with Fantasia
