American Idol XIII Top 31 Spoilers

OK. I’m going to make this the official list. I’ll be pinning it to the top of the blog, and reblogging it when new names are added!

The Idol Pad will be revealing the American Idol XIII Top 30, and a few other twists, this evening, sometime between 7-10 pm CT. You can follow them on twitter at IdolSpoilers.  We’ll be participating in the event, so please join us then!

In the meantime, here are more Hollywood hopefuls who made the cut.  No contestants from last year’s Top 20 made the cut, although any contestant outside of the Top 11 was eligible, due to a rule change. I guess the new producers want to begin this new season with a fresh slate.

  • There’s a Top 31 this season
  • Sixteen boys/Fifteen girls

UPDATE: There will be a Top 30 in the end, when Neco Starr and Ben Briley are forced to compete against each other for the 30th spot. America will vote on the last Hollywood Round episode.
