Check out Idol Pad for a partial list of the Top 20 girls.

There are rumblings that contestants MAY be brought back at some point, but there is no confirmation at this point.

  • Brittany Keener

    lol poor David Leathers…can’t catch a break.

  • irockhard

    Yeah neither than Schyler Dixon.

  • raya

    On the plus side, if the other site is to be believed in looks like Candace Glover at least made it to Top 20 girls.

  • Dennis

     I know right I feel bad for David. lol

  • Larc

    Imani Handy was cut.  She’s the one in Johnny Keyser’s group last year who fainted and he kept on singing.

    I’m really surprised that David Leathers got cut, but I heard he sounded very different from last year.  Maybe his voice changed.

  • Ryan

    if she makes live shows she has my vote 100%!

  • Li Wright

    I honestly don’t want to know names and results until the show starts.  This info release kills it for me.

  • Ryan

    then don’t click on the story. especially if it says spoilers……….

  • ptebwwong

    It was reported that David Leathers now has a lower voice than last season.

  • Wally.

     Angie Miller FTW

  • HermeticallySealed

     Guess that’s why the very title of the article says “Spoilers.”

  • fuzzywuzzy

    That would be good. I only vaguely remember David from last year, and at that time, he sounded like a young Michael Jackson.

  • Jonathan Frahm

    This Gurpreet guy is totally a “funny guy” fodder lock for the Top 10.

  • No Thanks

     I think David Leathers testicles are still descending.  He probably should have waited until his voice change was complete.

  • durbesque

    He’ll be back.

  • Claude Dee

    I’m still debating whether I should look at the spoilers this year or not. lol 

  • Kirsten

    Yay! Yay! Yay. I loves spoilers. It enables me to feast on popcorn while I watch the auditions and see if I can detect the (not so) delicate hand of Nigel as he edits the story he wants us to see.

    True, you can do that without spoilers, but I just have more fun this way.

  • SaSa8

    I think the problem with David Leathers may be more of his attitude (arrogance) than his voice.  At least that was the issue that I saw in him that I did not care for.

  • Jake Williams

    Schyler don’t need it. Give someone else a chance. She can mooch off her brother.

  • LeahKittyS

    Curse you, judges and producers! I’ve been following The Idol Pad closely and I’m not liking what I see. Schyler Dixon–Cut. Shelby Lynn Twenten–Cut. Ariel Sprague–Cut. David Leathers, Jr.–Cut. Even that supposedly phenomenal Adam Sanders is out. Oh well, at least I still have Candice and Nick and Johnny and Cortez to follow, I guess.

  • blackberryharvest

    There’s still other good people still in the running also:

    Aubrey Cleland:

    Zoelah Johnson:

    Angie Miller:

    Addi Brown:

  • tripp_ncwy

    American Idol 2012 – David Leathers Jr – american idol 2012 auditions

    ETA: I didn’t even remember him.

  • Anny_nanny

    I’m sorry, I pressed stop.

  • Anny_nanny

    I’m not in love from anyone. I hope the Zoelah’s voice became deeper – it might be of interest, and we must see that all of them will do on the show.

  • mikaylaislove

    I’m so glad David was cut. I’d rather Idol scout R&B artist from YouTube than to settle for David. There is nothing special about him, IMO.

  • Wally.

    The only people from the guy side I see winning is Jimmy Smith/Josh Holiday/Paul Jolley.

    Two of them can be cut before the top10.

  • LeahKittyS

    Yeah, but right now I’m only concerned about repeats from last year. I don’t take any interest in newcomers until the official season premiere.

  • Ratna12

    I thought that David Leathers audition video 2012 was horrible, he was really pitchy.

  • Kariann Hart

    I think they all have that chance to get in the TOP 10.  Maybe Johnny has settled down a bit.  He has a lot of fans.  I am curious as to where Josh Jada JOHN Davila will end up?  I don’t think Davi Leathers has the goods.
