Just Another Top 50 Update – Spoilers!

There are even more Top 50 rumors after the Jump! There are more contestants identified, and a few interesting tidbits. Thanks as always to Joesplace/Milajoy who is doing her thang over at Idol Forums

Bonus: Dave from Vote For The Worst posted a Holiday Surprise on Christmas Eve. Heh.

If you’re so inclined (in other words, love being SPOILED)…

…Check it out.

A few noteworthy tidbits:

  • Jermain Paul, the contestant with probably the most experience (a duet he performed with Alicia Keys was nominated for a grammy) dropped out after he made the Top 50. I suppose his quitting will become part of the Hollywood drama…
  • The “Irish Girl” has been identified by Vote For The Worst. Her name is Carly Hennessy. She likes tattoos!

And I’m hearing that the contestants TPTB seemed to really like best in Hollywood were:

  • Michael Johns
  • Syesha Mercado
  • Josiah Leming
  • David Archuleta
  • Carol “Carly” Hennessy (The Irish Girl)
