I can’t remember a season of American Idol when I’ve been more pleased with the Top 24 contestants. Season 10 is going to go down in history as the best year yet!
After more than a month of auditions, the Top 24 contestants of American Idol season 10 were announced Feb. 24. (What a fitting date, right?) Outside of fan favorite Chris Medina, who was sadly cut the night before, there weren’t too many surprises with the big reveal — and honestly, I didn’t mind it one bit!
Thankfully, my three favorite youngsters — big voiced Lauren Alaina, country cutie Scotty McCreery and Charice-esque Thia Megia — all made the cut, so I was pleased as punch. Who else will be competing for our votes to make the Top 12? Here’s your official list:
Naima Adedapo, Haley Reinhart, Clint Jun Gamboa, Paul McDonald, Ashthon Jones, Karen Rodriguez, Robbie Rosen, Julie Zorrilla, Tim Halperin, Scotty McCreery, Tatynisa Wilson, Jovany Barreto, Lauren Turner, Rachel Zevita, Kendra Chantelle, Jordan Dorsey, Lauren Alaina, Stefano Langone, Jacob Lusk, Pia Toscano, James Durbin, Casey Abrams, Thia Megia and Brett Loewenstern.
The top 12 girls and the top 12 guys will perform pre-taped songs next week and we’ll vote on our Top 12. Plus, don’t forget to register for Facebook if you don’t have one already — you can vote for your top picks on there this year!
