Here they are, American Idol fans! Your Top 24!
These Season 11 hopefuls passed the audition rounds, survived the grueling Hollywood Week, and sang for their lives in Vegas. Now, they will perform for the fans’ votes in the semifinals next week.
Without further ado…
Meet the Top 12 Boys: Deandre Brackensick, Adam Brock, Colton Dixon. Creighton Fraker, Eben Franckewitz, Reed Grimm, Heejun Han, Joshua Ledet, Chase Likens, Aaron Marcellus, Phil Phillips, and Jeremy Rosado
Meet the Top 12 Girls: Baylie Brown, Hollie Cavanagh, Hallie Day, Jen Hirsh, Haley Johnson, Skylar Laine, Shannon Magrane, Jessica Sanchez, Chelsea Sorrell, Elise Testone, Erika Van Pelt, and Brielle Von Hugel
* In a surprise twist, the guys will soon see an additional member to their Top 12. Either Jermaine Jones, David Leathers Jr., Richie Law, or Johnny Keysey will be given a wildcard spot during Tuesday night’s live show. Will a Top 13 also be extended to the girls group during their live show on Wednesday night? I for one would love to see Candice Glover or Skylar Dixon return.
Check out the Top 24’s celebratory dances above and get a glimpse of the personalities and star quality potential behind those great voices.
