Spoiler Update: Anoop Desai Rumored to Make the Top 50

Trusted AI spoiler, Joesplace, has added Anoop Desai to her list of Top 50 contestants.

Check out my Top 50 list.

Anoop auditioned in Kansas City. Watch his audition HERE. He performed with an a’cappela group called the Clef Hangers as an undergraduate at the University of North Carolina. Here he is with the group singing lead on “Kiss Kiss”

Rumor has it the Top 50 were whittled down to the Top 36 in Los Angeles, Monday. The Top 36 will compete live on the show for a spot in the Top 12.

    I’m glad to see he made it to the Top 50. I don’t think he has the personality or charisma to break into the Top 12 but on voice alone he should at least make the Top 36.

    Could we use real names here? No one knows who you’re talking about, and the nicknames confuse and/or piss people off.

    Let’s get back on the topic–Anoop Dawg! Thank you.

  • Hoppy

    Excellent news! This guy is already building quite the following, I think, so we’ll see how far he goes. :)

    Please let him make Top 36 and Top 12! He’s my early fave..have you listened to the Clef Hangers’ studio versions where Anoop is the soloist?

    Absolutely beautiful!

    ETA: And this guy can do ballads as well as hip hop and pop! I can’t wait to see what he brings to the show..

    I’m happy that he makes the top 50 and hope he does go further. It’s too soon for me to pick a favorite but he’s one of them.

    While he’s not my favorite (yet at least), I think he has the talent and charisma to go far in the competition.

  • sunchick

    Okay, I hate the song, but that vid was entertaining and lolztastic. :laugh_tb: Kinda reminded me of Dynamite Hack’s awesome folksy cover of Boyz-n-the-Hood, which never gets old. Hee. Hope he made the top 36.

    YAY! I said I wasn’t going to vote this season (I’ve only ever voted for David Cook, and I couldn’t forsee anyone else moving me to pick up the phone), but I would totally vote for Anoop. Hopefully I will have the opportunity.

  • sabby_rina

    OMG hahah! This dude is awesome! I’m not sure how they would market him as an artist but man is he entertaining to watch.

  • chicksineggz

    Yayyyyy (:
    I really hope he makes Top 36. I will definitely be voting for him! And I do think he has the personality to make Top 12.

    I don’t see Anoop on Joes Place’s list – was it removed? Or am I just blind?

    Joesplace posted it in idolforums..

    Anoop is top 50. Judges in Hollywood really liked him. Chances to make top 36 look good!

  • lrt

    Thank you, widz. I didn’t think to check idolforums.

  • Grammie Kari

    Anoop really came across as a sweet man with a very nice voice. I want to see more of him and hope he is in the TOP 50.

  • dzbebepnai
