    OK, who is the guy with the blue and black striped shirt and the guy with the black shirt? Am I supposed to know them?

  • monleo1705

    Out of the whole bunch, only Crystal, Siobhan and Casey seem to have the most star appeal physically.

    OK, who is the guy with the blue and black striped shirt and the guy with the black shirt? Am I supposed to know them?

    They’re from the cast of Glee! Mark Salling and Cory Monteith. Maybe Todrick will end up on that show – he would probably be great on it!

    Those are 2 guys from Glee – Puck and Finn.

  • OhMyRawrrr

    Glad to see they recovered from the funereal atmosphere of the show.

  • jersey

    Thanks, I knew not watching Glee was going to catch up to me eventually!

  • lucy

    Those smiling faces are *before* they start tackling the Rolling Stone Songbook. heh.

    Tim, Aaron, Katie — and Mick Jagger. Hm.

  • hicksaholic

    I think Casey is cute but not very talented. I’m hoping Lee steps up. Really a shame there’s no Alex. He would have been fun to watch getting more and more comfortable on stage. Oh well…

  • jersey

    I’m actually a little more afraid of what Andrew will do to Mick Jagger. Tim, Aaron and Katie will sing the songs straight. Andrew will try to reinvent the Stones.

  • J9BT

    Thanks, I knew not watching Glee was going to catch up to me eventually!

    You might want to go back and watch last season. I think it’s hysterical, with the added bonus of hearing awesome singing. I have their CD’s and love them!

  • larc

    About half that group really aren’t good enough to be there. Talent better than they are was eliminated along the way getting to the Top 12. But I guess the less serious competition, the less chance the win won’t go the way TPTB want it.

  • J9BT

    A tour with 1 or more of Paige, Lacey and Tim will totally suck. Come on, America, let’s get something right next week!

  • lucy

    I’m actually a little more afraid of what Andrew will do to Mick Jagger.

    Good point. … To tell you the truth, I keep forgetting about Andrew totally!

  • http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=iamthepurplewalrus&view=videos purplesmile

    Is that Puck? Hee.

  • koshka

    Yeah… I bet you guys are smiling. Some of you can’t believe your good fortune.

  • JudyL

    Unless there is some drastic improvement in many of there performances, I can’t even imagine how poorly the tour is going to sell. And some (Andrew) are getting worse, not better. Crystal looks and acts like she might not be well enough to make the tour.

  • monleo1705

    It’s been almost 12 hours and I haven’t shaken the disbelief that i won’t be seeing the cutie Mullet around anymore…

    Yup i am that emotional.

    I hope Crystal has someone to hang out with…she doesn’t seem very close to the rest,except for Lilly and Katelynn.

  • movin2thabeet

    I’m kind of loving that Crystal and Mike, and to a lesser extent, Lee, are the only ones not putting on the plastic smile.

  • deez

    BLAH. I spy (at least) six people who shouldn’t be in that picture. LOL@ “Pageant-bot” (nice MJ)…VERY apt description. Could someone explain the pimpage for this girl? She looks like she wants to be forty, and her voice is meh. She reminds me of every “fake” girl I went to HS with. If she seemed like she might be a sweet kid (like Aaron seems) I might not be so pissed by it. Whatever.

    I felt so BAD for Alex. That was just WRONG! Andrew Garcia has gotten steadily worse, while Alex has gotten steadily better. For me, that’s also true of Lee. BOO!!!!!!!!!BOOOO!!!!!!!
    A fairly high percentage of these guys also seem like douchebags.(or maybe it’s because I’m not happy)

  • hicksaholic

    Maybe TPTB wanted a couple of the good ones out so they could start working on albums early.

  • anovich

    Crystal looks and acts like she might not be well enough to make the tour.

    She looks sick in some of these pictures and like she has no energy at all.

    I hope Crystal has someone to hang out with…she doesn’t seem very close to the rest,except for Lilly and Katelynn.

    We;ve never seen her interacting with the guys really. Based on some tweets from Jim last night, I think she might hang out with Andrew.

  • matkojapan

    Just looking at “pageant bot’s” (lol!!) face makes me wanna puke.

    She is totally the girl everybody hated in high school because she thought she was better than everyone else!

    Can’t stand her phoniness!

    WORST TOP 12 EVER!!

    It’s quite funny actually

  • rayni

    Do you think Crystal has read the reaction to her teeth on the internet and has stopped smiling as a result? Have we made her self-conscious? Because she looks soooo unhappy – like she really does not want to be there and it irritates me and sure keeps me from wanting to support her. I’ve seen Katie called a snob but I believe Crystal is the snob in this group.

    And while I’m on the ‘tude train, Big Mike is a little too cocky for me sometimes.

    I gotta like ya to vote ya. Just sayin’.

  • jammasta

    A fairly high percentage of these guys also seem like douchebags.(or maybe it’s because I’m not happy)

    ….Yeah, I think you’re just unhappy, none of these guys have given off a douche-y vibe (Tim Urban kinda looks like one, but meh, I’m sure he’s a nice guy. He takes pictures well, too. Maybe it’s the photos?)

    I think it’s about time we got over who’s not in there and who shouldn’t be there, because, well, every comment being about how irritated we are is already really annoying, no offense to anyone, and it’s not doing anything except making people feel worse. Don’t get me wrong, I still don’t know why Tim, Andrew, and Katie are still there, but I’m not gonna dwell on it or hold it against them because Lilly and Alex aren’t there.

    And, God help me, but Crystal can be kinda hot in some pictures. That’s something I never thought I’d EVER say. I never thought I’d get over that stupid piercing (well, maybe I’m not, but I’m less inclined to be bugged by it.) I mean, that solo picture of her makes her look great.

    Hey, there’s a picture of Crystal, Aaron, and Siobhan. Three of my faves (I feel Aaron has potential, he just hasn’t hit it yet…. and I admit he got lucky this week, that performance was pretty weak :P….. and, just like that, I need to brace for the impact of people hating me for liking Aaron).

    My cousin said Crystal and Michael for top 2. I think I can be down with that, but we’ll see…..

  • JudyL

    Big Mike is a little too cocky for me

    ITA. Even when others are performing, he is always doing something to draw attention to himself. Muscle-building guys always seem so conceited…..he probably wishes they had asked him instead of Tyler to take off his shirt. The show is so lacking in good male singers that he looks better than he would if he had some real competition. Plus, I am so tired of the mentioning of the birth of his baby every single show.

  • abbysee

    Crystal is quite hot, I noticed that last night. She’s the only one I give a fuck about, everyone else has me yawning and searching for navel lint. Watching the grass grow is starting to become appealing to me. Paige, Tim, Katie, Aaron, Lee, and Andrew (yep, off that train)are pretty much non entities to me Siobhan and Mike might redeem the season a bit if the rise to the occasion. I do notice that Mike might have a bit of an issue with self importance, and fwiw I wasn’t exactly jumping up and down with that last performance once he started doing his lumber around the stage. I think it was a bit cheesy, thank goodness the voice was okay. So the music of The Rolling Stones next. Hmmmm, wonder how that’s working for them so far. I am sure there are 13 songs on that list, lol.

  • jumpstart

    For me, this is the weakest top 12 ever (more so than even season 6). I hope that someone does something fantastic next week. So far, I’ve been completely unimpressed.

  • tinawina

    Katie looks really cute. Lacey always looks weird to me… she has a vacant smile IMO.

    Crystal comes across to me as painfully shy.

    I kinda want to smack Andrew. I’m not even sure why.

    Didi is such a Brooke White reincarnation that its a little spooky.

    Big Mike is just a big ball o’ velveta. With steroids.

  • wjmtv

    Crystal comes across to me as painfully shy.

    Yes yes yes. And as a formerly painfully-shy person myself, I know how that can bite you on the a.s.s. It doesn’t help that she also seems to be self-conscious about her smile. I hope she gets to feeling better on both counts, as well as the other count we all want her “feeling better” about.

    I gotta say, the girls this year are some funky dressers. Wow.

  • yaminacookie

    How did I miss the guy in the striped shirt? I think he’s my American Idol this year. Oh, he’s not a contestant? So what.

  • stingray11214

    If you did not think that they cast for type before, nothing else will convince you that they cast the show than this season. NONE of them will do well once the season is over.

  • tinawina

    Wow, looking at them all together right now just really makes you think. The only ones who are consistently good right now are Crystal, Sibohann, Big Mike and Casey. Coming in next with the potential to get themselves together are Didi and Lee IMO. Out of those who is 1. most likely to win and 2 most likely to sell records? DIdi and Casey could sell records, but I don’t know if they’ll win. Crystal and Sibbohan could win to me… I think. This is going to be the hardest overall pick ever. I think I’m going to wait until top 12 performance night to choose.

  • ozarko

    That tattoo on Andrew’s neck bugs the hell out of me. It looks like a barcode. Where’s my scan gun?

  • J9BT

    Do you think Crystal has read the reaction to her teeth on the internet and has stopped smiling as a result? Have we made her self-conscious? Because she looks soooo unhappy – like she really does not want to be there and it irritates me and sure keeps me from wanting to support her. I’ve seen Katie called a snob but I believe Crystal is the snob in this group.

    Crystal is the farthest thing from a snob. During Hollywood week she was one of the most likeable contestants, as evidenced by the group of them singing and clapping along to her performances. Ryan actually commented about this on one of the Hollywood shows.

    Last night she was completely devastated about Lilly and Katelyn leaving, to a point where she was barely able to participate in the group photo. You should read the recap from the on-site EW reporter whose article MJ has featured in the recaps from last nights show. He very clearly describes the impact of the eliminations on Crystal.

    Word! I would like to vote for him and the guy in the black shirt beside him!

    Seriously, they are in the cast of Glee. They both sing too well to make it on this “singing” contest. They wouldn’t have made it past the judges. The girl who plays the character Mercedes on Glee did make it to Hollywood a couple of years ago. She is an amazing singer! Of course, she was cut.

  • wjmtv

    Heh. Yeah, I’ll bet she’s really crying in her Cheerios about that one right now. She’s awesome. They’re all awesome. Maybe I’ll go see them on tour this summer.

  • bigjr6633

    Does anybody think Justin Guarini, or however you spell is tired of coming to these things? He’s been to like everyone of these Idol events and continues to talk about performance recaps and reviews since his season ended, isn’t he tired of this sh**? I would be tired of it, I would go be doing something with my life that’s non Idol related!

  • Miss Chaos

    Siobhan has an Eye of Horus tattoo like Adam does, I find that interesting for some reason.

  • ettacandy

    Man, what suckage. Not only my score in the pool, but at least half this top 12. Lord!

    The pageant bot must be stopped! Please people, please!!

  • lucy

    The pageant bot must be stopped! Please people, please!!

    Oh, Katie will at least get to top 10 and be on the tour. And AI will be grateful, because without significant pre-teen appeal, how are they going to sell *any* tickets?

    I predict that Lacey and Paige are the two who won’t make the tour. Possibly Andrew, if he doesn’t pull himself together soon. But I feel pretty confident in saying that, with so much meh-ness from all ages and genders, this feels like a season when female-hormonal-voting will win the day and the weakest girls with the least young-teen appeal will almost inevitably be ousted first.

    So you’ve got Katie for at least three more weeks.

    She might become vulnerable pretty quickly after that, though, I think, unless some of the guys — notably the less eye-candyish or tween-pet two, Andrew and Lee, start to put together some very strong performances. I don’t know what the odds are of that — probably slim!

    Anyway, I see Paige and Lacey going immediately.
    Then Andrew, Lee, Katie, and maybe Aaron and Didi, all in a mid-bunch in no particular order. And if anybody survives this mid-level-five blood bath, I predict that it will be Katie.
    Then I predict Siobhan and Michael become vulnerable, again in no particular order.
    Leaving us with a top three of Crystal, Casey, and Tim.

    OMG
