The Top 13 posed and strutted their stuff for a photo shoot Saturday night, and TV Line has the exclusive video.

  • Watch the Top 13 Photo Shoot preview HERE.
  • BONUS: Check out photos of sweet mansion the contestants have moved into via TMZ HERE.

So what do you think? Does Paul McDonald look good in a tux? Which Idol has the style thing down pat? Are you looking forward to the photos?

OMG that mansion! I don’t think it’s big enough. (Yikes).

    I think that these are publicity photos for the press.

  • Marie Ruffin

    Pia & Haley look like TV stars….Lauren definitely has “it” confidence in spades. she’s going to be in the top 5. Just needs to lose some weight (think: kelly)

    Dammnit, lol. Nonetheless she looks gorgeous.

  • girlygirl

    Is this a different house than the S8 people lived in? I think that one was in Bel Air

  • girlygirl

    why should Lauren have to lose any weight? She looks fine. It’s so stupid that female celebs feel like they need to be super skinny to be successful. And it’s not healthy.

  • tinawina

    Those stylists need a bonus. Everyone looks so much better!

  • BootStar

    Oh, man, Lauren and James need a fashion overhaul STAT. Are the stylists trying to help these kids or just give them enough rope to hang themselves?

    Thia has so much more personality when she’s just talking. I wish we could see more of that when she performs.

    I think so. If I am not mistaken, the S8 house is a famous house featured in several movies, including the Godfather and the Bodyguard. This one doesn’t look like it.

    Are there are only two minors, Scotty & Thia, who will have guardians living in the house also?

    The problem w/ a big gorgeous hose like that is they will hardly be there to enjoy it. I don’t get the impression they have a lot of down time…

  • emmuzka

    After watching that I noticed that I’m already so much more emotionally invested in this season’s contestants that I was to last year’s folks. :) :)

    Thia, Lauren, Scotty and Haley had a bit trouble appearing likable, but it was probably due to nerves because of their age, and with Haley because she just has no presence.

    only 9 bedrooms?

    Yes, but hopefully it will give them some chemistry with each other. I think putting the contestants in apartments, last season, ruined that.

    They look great – James looks much more polished. And Paul looks great in that tux. Ahem. I kinda hope they’ll do something with Casey’s beard – he seems to have that same pretty translucent skin that Cookie has. This is really a very attractive group for the most part. I can’t wait for their first group song to see how they sound together.

    Yep. However, if lip syncing is involved, I may have to hurt someone (I’m looking at you Nigel ;) .

  • claudette

    Paul looks so amazing. Stephano and james too.

    Princess Pia is officially the first to totally get on my nerves and 1st to dislike.

    Lauren looks terrible. She really needs a make-over. Her weight is fine but she and the stylists are not picking flattering things out.

    I REALLY REALLY miss Kendra. She would have been my fav of the bunch.

  • hazuki

    Princess Pia is officially the first to totally get on my nerves and 1st to dislike.

    Really, Pia? She seems so humble and sweet. I love her personality. Hardly annoying, imo. I don’t think anyone is really getting on my nerves yet. Though does Scotty really have to mention that he loves country alot? kinda annoying but eh whatever I guess. I don’t like country anyways, maybe thats it.

    Tell that to Jennifer Hudson….I also think the same about Casey.

    From an architect’s point of view…that is one ugly cheap looking 12 million dollar home with absolute no character. It’s just a blow up of a typical California psuedo spanish home…and it uses an abundance of really cheap looking finishes. Other than its location I wouldn’t give it a second look…probably not even a first.

  • missytoots

    in the pic above James looks like the villain in the kids show LazyTown

    Far too many of the mansion-type houses in that area lack character. They tend to look as if a lot of Hollywood set designers are moonlighting as architects. An old Southern word that comes to mind is “tacky.”
