Sigh. I’m capping as fast as I can, but it’s taking awhile… I promise, a full re-cap soon–with pictures!
In the meantime…
The Brittenum twins did an interview with radio station V-103 in Atlanta. They were NOT in attendance for the taping of the Top 44 episode. And, according to the twins, they were kicked off Idol, but have been offered a record deal. More on that tomorrow… Thanks to Dan for that bit of information.
Those looking for Patrick Hall tonight in Greensboro–according to Dar, who left a comment, Patrick Hall actually auditioned in Las Vegas. Ahhh. I guess that’s why I couldn’t find him! Dar says the picture I posted doesn’t do him justice, he’s really much cuter. :).
Spoiler, thanks for the detailed info on the audition process! I’ll be posting more on that later.
A few comments about tonight’s show…
Did I actually say that potential Top 24 contestant Paris Bennet might have more personality than vocal ability? Why did I say that? I may have been repeating something I heard from a fellow contestant. Any fellow singer who thinks she ain’t talented is just jellus. Cause, man, based on what I heard tonight, that young girl is a PHENOMENAL singer. Without a doubt, the best I’ve heard so far. I also really liked Halicia Thompson and Tyra Schwartz. Who cracked me up: Marcus Behling and Rhonetta Johnson. Otherwise–gah, the material just DID NOT warrant a two hour show.
Last thing tonight…
A poster over in the AI Spoiler section at Idolforums.com claims to know at least some of the names on the Top 24 list. I heard from another reliable source that the Top 24 were chosen today (Tuesday). I’m going to post the information, with the caveat that s/he’s the one and only source for this information, and that s/he’s only got about 25 posts on the forum. If anybody out there can verify or has a second opinion, I’d love to hear from ya–anonymously if you’d like. I won’t name names. ;).
People who made the cut (Top24):
Jose Penala (SWAY)
Gidion(?) from Memphis
Those who did not
The Brittenum twins were not in attendance
So, there you have it.
