Joe’s Place reports there will be a Top 12 instead of a Top 13 AND that the wild cards will not be picked until NEXT WEDNESDAY after all the rejects sing AGAIN on TUESDAY.
That’s an entire week without viewer voting.
Tomorrow American Idol names the top 10 that WE put through with our votes.
HOWEVER, they will NOT be naming any Wild cards during Thursdays show. Instead, the 14 contestants that were not put through with the votes, will ALL come back to sing next Wednesday to earn a spot as a Wild Card. Then, on Thursday, the judges will name TWO (YES TWO) Wild cards to round out the top 12.
With multiple sources reporting a Top 13, it’s obvious the producers considered it. If Joe’s tidbit is true, I wonder what changed their minds?
I don’t see the point of bringing everybody back to sing if America can’t pick.
ETA: I’m hearing there’s a big red carpet event tomorrow night introducing the new cast. This latest bit of info could be false.
