  • Kirsten

    Weren’t there supposed to be 20? What happened?

  • LeahKittyS

    Either it’s a typo, or someone was disqualified/withdrawn. More likely it’s a typo on MJ’s part.

  • earthy

    19 is a weird typo though you have to mess up back to back characters.

  • mtthew

    it’s a typo.

    first set of ten, being a total of 2 sets for a total of 20 girls. i think the 9 is supposed to be a 0. count the list and there are 10 girls.

  • earthy

    Yeah I guess it is I didn’t read it too fast and had a brain fart thinking it was 20 but first set of 10.

  • http://twitter.com/newbornstarr Wally.

    It’s obviously gonna be:
    Angela
    Kree
    Isabelle
    Shubha
    Tina

    IMO

  • Idolwild

    She meant to say 10. There are on 10 listed which is half of the girls in the top 20.

  • LeahKittyS

    I would replace Tenna with Kamaria and agree otherwise. Angela’s a lock, Kree is awesome, Isabelle is pretty and Shubha is playing it right.

  • http://twitter.com/KariannHart Kariann Hart

    This sounds like the chosen 5, although I have heard Jenny Beth is a good singer.  I wouldn’t know, I haven’t seen her unless she was in the group of country singers?

  • http://twitter.com/newbornstarr Wally.

     Kamaria has no chance of making unless she really nails her performance.

  • LeahKittyS

    Well, I saw a promo where she got special mention, so someone behind the scenes likes her. Plus the little we’ve heard from her was good.

  • LeahKittyS

    Jenny Beth got special mention in that promo as well, so perhaps she, too, is moving on. Which would probably mean the end for Shubha or Isabelle, if not Kamaria.

  • dallashunters

    A month ago my top 4 girls after listening to online music were: 1) Angie 2) Kree 3) Shubha and 4) Jenny Beth……I’ll be dang if they’re not ALL going against each other tonight.  Jenny Beth is Holly!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    This is being such a mess. lol

  • http://twitter.com/deonoxivar Deon Oxivar

    Yup, I think you’re right. Not a bad line-up if you ask me!

  • dallashunters

    Someone posted on Idol forums that no cell phones were allowed in.  No word on fax machines! (:

  • dallashunters

    Of course how did they find out you couldn’t have cell phones, how would they relay that while in show?

  • http://twitter.com/thekatieL Katie Lane

    someone posted a message from the ticketing company about not allowing cameras, cell phones, or any other recording device. Who knows how strict they were though. Concert venues say that too but people always sneak in their cameras. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Nicole-Smith/1387761587 Nicole Smith

    Does anyone know wo they cut? 

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Nicole-Smith/1387761587 Nicole Smith

    *Who 

  • http://twitter.com/MissGolightly22 No Thanks

    I’ve been to enough TV show tapings (including Idol) to know that they always confiscate those things.  It’s usually clearly stated on the ticket. Were people actually expecting video?  I always assumed the most we would get were spoilers on who gets cut and who makes it.

  • dallashunters

     Two years ago when they taped delayed the night Pia sang, it was like getting updates and who and how well they sang every 10 minutes! 

  • http://www.facebook.com/swimgals89 Sultana Saritas

    I’ll be heading to vegas tonight to see the guys perform tomorrow! I’m not even allowed to bring my phone in you guys think? Gonna be a long time waiting without anything to do heh lol, but i know should prob just leave the phone in the car i guess…

  • http://twitter.com/blkeener Brittany Keener

    lol of course no phones allowed. Idol is VERY strict at enforcing this. Doesn’t mean people can’t sneak them in (ahem, I may have done it a few times). But with as many Idol people they have in the theater, it’s very hard to use one (again, not saying its impossible bc I have done it)

  • http://www.facebook.com/swimgals89 Sultana Saritas

    I don’t wanna use it to send spoilers, i just hate being away from my phone lol, gonna be tough!

  • dallashunters

    I guess in 4 minutes, show’s over.  Takes 10 minutes to get phone get outside and text…I’m predicting 8:13 pST the first cut is announced!  

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Nicole-Smith/1387761587 Nicole Smith

    Have any results been announced? 

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    All I care about is how the performances went. I rather know about the cuts when the show airs.

  • johnkay

    This person says “angela miller was amazing”
    https://twitter.com/MollyyyxD

    (she put pics of the tickets so she really was there)

  • dallashunters

    That shouldn’t hurt my girl’s frontrunner status!

  • http://twitter.com/thekatieL Katie Lane

    Well the people are out. Hopefully some spoilers will start coming in. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Nicole-Smith/1387761587 Nicole Smith

    Any results? 

  • johnkay

    It’s not over yet:
    twitter @MollyyyxD – “Isabelle did really good but was critized WILL LET U GUYS KNOW WHO MADE IT ONCE ITS OVER I see your tweets to me#americanidol”

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Nicole-Smith/1387761587 Nicole Smith

    Thanks! You just want me to tweet you at #americanidol? 

  • jammasta

    Whoa, who tweeted/posted the info about who’s going through?

    A cheery YESSSS!!!! for Kree and Angela, though.

  • blackberryharvest

    Happy Kree and Angela are through!

  • mjsbigblog

    Super secret source is SUPER SECRET. :) Waiting to hear about the last two

  • jammasta

    Yay, gotcha :P. 

  • http://twitter.com/dam744 Damien Roberts

    The last two have to be Shuba and Isabel.

  • http://twitter.com/dam744 Damien Roberts

    @Jetboi96
    Andrea, Kree, Amber, Angela, & Tina are staying this week#AmericanIdol

  • http://twitter.com/dam744 Damien Roberts

    Adriana and Amber were likely kept to make sure that Angela, Candice, and Janelle can easily make it to the top 5 girls.

  • http://twitter.com/newbornstarr Wally.

    Jett is freaking screwed. DAMN. 

  • kay121

    I saw that Amber got the pimp spot and was very good – dark horse, perhaps???

  • johnkay

    sheesh conspiracy theories before even hearing the performances. I think they’re going for a contemporary artist and shubha’s singing is not current

  • girlygirltoo

    From what I saw of them, Shubda >>>>> Teena, so that’s disappointing

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QKHMAEX5GDZ7CXTLUHXSRUYAZI Guilherme

    Well, thats what this round was about.. To give chance to the fodders to have a breackout performance in front of america and receive a pass from the judges. And about the eliminated ones, we don´t know yet how the wildcard picks will happen this year, so, I wouldn´t count them out yet.

  • http://twitter.com/newbornstarr Wally.

    Adriana in = Jett screwed
    UGH.
     

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Danielle-C-De-Paula/100001042000297 Danielle C. De Paula

    This is the cut to the top 20, not to the top 10 yet… They can both be on the top 20 fighting for a spot at the finals.

  • jammasta

    Shubha and Isabel > Tenna, and I have no idea about anything Adriana related, so that’s a little disappointing.

  • http://twitter.com/newbornstarr Wally.

     They won’t cast two asian females. Unless they cast all of the asians this year.  It might be the year of the fodder.

  • http://twitter.com/Notup2it4life Shannen

    Thats too bad about Shuba. She was the only one from this group I was interested in. Wondering if she made a bad song choice or ended up choking, or the rest were just better than her?

  • http://twitter.com/hotelangel Joe Crisco

    according to @kenaabeezy someone sang Born This Way

  • http://twitter.com/HighTensions Jake W.

    Go Angela! I’m perfectly fine with this entire list based on who I’ve seen perform so far.

  • johnkay

    she said shubha sang born this way

  • blackberryharvest

    Apparently Shubha sang Born This Way.

    I can understand why she was cut now. 

  • http://twitter.com/hotelangel Joe Crisco

    Shubha sang Born This Way

  • lovesickheroine

    I found Adriana Latonio’s youtube channel.  https://www.youtube.com/user/arlynelatonio I’m not impressed with her voice but she might’ve chosen a good song for her performance

  • http://twitter.com/KariannHart Kariann Hart

    Well, two of my favorites are gone.  I thought Isabelle and Shuba might have a chance.  I really don’t know much about Adriana and Amber.  Angela will be on the tour!

  • johnkay

    kree sang up to the mountain

  • blackberryharvest

    Apparently Kree Harrison did a “beautiful version” of Up To The Mountain!

    Here is a youtube video of her singing it(pre idol of course)

     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPGMk2IKG7U

  • http://twitter.com/hotelangel Joe Crisco

    heres what we can expect from Kree

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JH6ynj-dLUA

  • lovesickheroine

    I see Jett going up against Melinda and Adriana for top 10 since the three of them are pretty much are in the same genre.

  • johnkay

    Angela sang an original…maybe the tweet was deleted

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=619146318 Arkarch

     Just back from the show.  I’ll neither confirm nor deny anything
    because apparently I swore to Stage Manager Debbie not to reveal a thing
    :)  But I will say I agree with the final choices even though it meant
    one of my earlier faves went home – for good reason.

      Other notes -

      – You get a hard ticket when you check-in
      – Come back by 4:30 to wait in the nightclub.  It took forever there.  But it was their first live show so things got behind.
     
    – Show probably got started around 7:30 (I had no phone to check). 
    Finished up around 9:45.  It was supposed to be 6:00 – 8:00 but I didnt
    mind.
      – If you are parking, be warned the Mirage Parking garage was
    a mess.  I went back inside and had dinner at CPK to wait it out.

      Oh – and Keith is inside Nicki’s head.  :) 

      Fun Fun Fun.  This was great.  Applause for bringing a portion of the live show out here!  Now if I can win a free burrito! 

  • lovesickheroine

     Yay! I can’t wait to hear her original song! The girl is so smart for doing it, she’s really shows she’s an artist!

  • http://www.facebook.com/redsphilliesastros Shannon Hayden

    thanks for the spoilers.i might read the others to.but i’m nervous about the guys results this year 

  • jammasta

    Angela sang an original…maybe the tweet was deleted

    …Again?

  • blackberryharvest

    I don’t have a problem with that, it could give her another moment.

  • http://twitter.com/blkeener Brittany Keener

    From what I gathered by asking (stalking…whatever) around on twitter…it’s like pulling teeth to get people to give any bit of info bc they think Idol will ban them forever..fyi, they can’t stop you and they aren’t going to ban you:
    “Aint No Way” (Aretha Franklin) – ?”My Funny Valentine” – ?”Up to the Mountain” – KreeOriginal – Amanda”Born This Way” -Shubha (Audience loved her, judges did not)Someone also noted, there was lots of country.Someone said Mariah and Nicki were civil.Another noted that the judges were kinda mean but had interesting things to say.Adriana is the last to make it thru to T20.
    For the curious of mind, judges seating order was Mariah, Randy, Keith, Nicki.

  • http://www.facebook.com/tammyluebrecht Tammy Luebrecht

    If this Teena Torres is the same one I’ve see on her YT channel, I think she’s really good w/ a very current sound. I also love Kree and Angela but Adriana and Amber have me wondering. I really wish Shubha would have made it over one of them.

  • jammasta

    You’re right. That first song was very magical, IMO.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=619146318 Arkarch

    Brittany – order was K-N-R-M.

    The Producers are going to have a tough time making short shows.  The past few years they could depend on Steven Tyler saying “That was Beautiful” and bumping it immediately to JLo for some more babble.  These judges love to talk.  And talk.  But its good, thoughtful stuff.  Expect more two hour shows.

  • http://twitter.com/jepriy Jepoy Ramos

    ughhh ikr?! based of their YT, i prefer her much better than Adriana. But there’s still chance she might go thru. *pls producers make it happen*

  • http://twitter.com/KariannHart Kariann Hart

    Well, glad to see Mariah and Nicki were civil to each other!  Looking forward to more results!

  • Anny_nanny

    “Kree Harrison – Up to the Mountain by Patti Griffin”

    Ha! Kree has decided to remind Crystal.

  • dallashunters

    Well you have to admit 1 thing for good or bad,  has there EVER been this much angst and excitement at this stage of competition?  If Shubha (who I like) couldn’t get to top 10 girls how was she going to get into top 5 girls where it “appears” that Angie, Kree, Candice, and Janelle have reserved 4 of the spots!  Food for thought!

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    As in, Keith knew what he was talking about, Nicki had interesting things to say, and Mariah and Randy were empty vessels (aka, producer’s mouthpiece).

  • http://twitter.com/HighTensions Jake W.

    Holy cow! Check out Angela’s incredible cover of Home by Phil Phillips. So amazing!

    Kree Harrison – Up To The Mountain – 3/1/2010

  • geekygirl

    I DO NOT like this idol format, it should be Darwin’s survival of the fittest.  I fear with all the strong girls we are going to get the inevitable mediocre boy taking the place of a more deserved girl just because of Nigel’s evil format. Luck of the draw about which group you are up against is going to play in some contestants’ favour.  Let the chips fall where they will, why does it have to be equal numbers of both???? To quote Suess

    “I do not like this Sam I am,
    I do not like this Idol scam!”

  • http://twitter.com/Sassycatz Sassycatz

    I really liked Melinda Ademi’s performance last week (Price Tag), so I’ll be interested to see how she does during these rounds. Good to know she hasn’t gone home yet. 

  • http://twitter.com/raya4 raya

    I can’t really criticize the judges picks without seeing the performances, so we shall see.  I didn’t really like the little I saw of Shubha in the solo Hollywood round, where I thought she made a bad song choice, so we will see if it’s the same here.  Angela and Kree going through were the only two givens here short of them completely choking on stage.  Angela doing another original was probably a smart choice, though I wonder how she’s going to deal when forced into theme weeks with little wiggle room, since it’s obvious she’s headed for Top 10.  I hazard to think she will have a harder time shining when not able to perform her own songs. 

  • http://twitter.com/TeamCandiGlover Team Candice Glover

    Excited to hear Adriana tonight! Finally!

  • http://www.twitter.com/sarahruth3 Sarah

    I didn’t listen to Angela’s YouTubes initially, but I finally did over the weekend, because it seems that she is going to go far so I wanted to see more of what she’s about. After watching some of those, I think she’ll be fine with the theme weeks, as long as she picks the right songs. Hopefully she has an extensive enough knowledge/catalog of music to do that. She should do “Skyscraper” or “Titanium” on one of the “open” theme weeks because those were two of her best, IMO.

    But, honestly, if Kree makes the voting rounds, I could probably see myself voting/rooting for her above the other girls. Her voice & style are more my preference. But, is she the one who looks like the crazy girl from The Bachelor? I’ll have to get past that first. Ha. :)

  • http://twitter.com/diedrupo diedrupo

    da fuq? they got rid of Shubha Vedula? and obviously their song choices didn’t matter since the top 10 girls have been pre-chosen by producers weeks ago.

  • Elizabeth Lee

     May you please tell me how JDA does? I’ve been waiting to hear him but, so far, nothing. Please? Thanks. :)

  • tucker davis

    I understand your point, but because she writes her own songs, she may be able to make interesting changes to theme songs. IMO that is why some of our latest winners (David, Kris, P2) stood out. 

  • CB40

    I’m glad Isabelle left, I don’t think you should use ONE NAME until you’re really big in the industry ;)

  • http://twitter.com/lizzie20114 Elizabeth

    So glad Kree and Angela went through sad for Isabelle  and Brandy really liked them :(

  • http://twitter.com/mafs95 Mafalda Abreu

    I’m actually happy that Shubha didn’t make it to the Top 20. It means she can come back next year or two years later. She’s still 16 and from her song choices I think she still has some work to do. I liked her a lot, but she needs some training and that way she may become a dark horse and a real contender!

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    But are you allowed to come back after top 40?

  • kay121

    Not sure, but I don’t think so?

  • Daniel Fernandez

    Amber is actually really good and apparently she was a standout in Hollywood

  • Larc

    I think Idol contestants can try for another season unless they are cut by public voting.  Anybody cut from the Top 40 could try for another season, but not those who get cut from the Top 20 in S12.  Aubrey Cleland and Cortez Shaw were in the Top 42 for S11 as well as the Top 40 this year.

  • davedpg

    dizzyfeet (Nigel Lythgoe) RT @krztfr: @dizzyfeet Can those contestants that will be cut in the Las Vegas Round this season still audition for next year? [Yes.]

    First 10 boys and girls this week and next week. Only five girls and boys each week go through. So we’ll have 10 boys and girls for America to decide who will be in Top 10.
