American Idol 10 Top 40 Spoilers – Featured Contestant – 01/29/11

Gangreen29 brings us yet another new rumored Top 40 contestant, courtesy of JoesPlaceBlog.

Also, Nigel Lythgoe has been tweeting spoilers this morning! See who he namechecks, after the jump.

Today’s hopeful is cute and plays the piano…


Stefano Langone – Stefano plays the piano, and like Tim Halperin is cute in a non-threatening way. He has power to his voice, but seems to be lacking any nuance to his voice. He has an interesting tone though. In past seasons he risked being labeled as “broadway” or theatrical by Simon, but this year it seems there are a lot more theater type voices.

Videos and Nigel Lythgoe spoilers after the JUMP…

I knew Nigel would be the most awesomest twitter peep ever. He can’t help but name names–all in the service of hyping up the new season!

@chessguy99 oh no! great girls to come this season. Karen, Pia, Ashthon, Tatynisha, Lakeisha, Julie in SF. There’s a lot to still discover!

@Girl4Reba wait until you meet James and Stefano in San Fran, Casey in Austin perhaps Tim in LA. There’s still plenty of real talent to come

Notice he namechecks Stefano in there…
