American Idol 12 Spoilers: Hollywood/Las Vegas Round Deets, Top 28 Boys List, and MORE

Today’s American Idol 12 Hollywood Week spoilers come from a variety of sources, including twitter.

First things first: Remember when I told you that the Top 40 boys and girls would be heading to Las Vegas today? Well SCRATCH THAT.  For whatever reason (I suspect it had something to do with the judges’ schedules)  there were no rounds on Sunday.  The Top 43 girls were scheduled to perform in the solo with band rounds, just like the guys, but it was pushed back to TODAY.


By the end of the day, Monday (Dec 17) the Top 43 girls will be whittled down.  A Top 20 girls and Top 20 boys will be announced.  However, the delayed schedule means THE LAS VEGAS ROUND WILL BE PUSHED INTO JANUARY.   No word on dates yet.

The Vegas Rounds will result in a TOP 20.  Ten girls and Ten guys.  There will be a middle round BUT the episode will be taped a few days before it airs. THE JUDGES WILL DECIDE WHO ADVANCES TO A TOP 10..  There will be no viewer voter until there is a Top 10.  Right. No Top 12 or 13. A Top 10. AND NO VIEWER VOTING UNTIL THE FINALS.

Of course, Nigel Lythgoe reserves the right to change his mind before season begins (OR EVEN DURING THE SEASON), so you never know.

But, The Las Vegas round has definitely been pushed into the new year.  As soon as I know more, I’ll let you all know.

Here are the boys who survived the last Hollywood solo round. The number will be cut down further to 20 (as will the girls) for the upcoming Las Vegas round in January.
