Season 9 Preview Roundup

Season 9 starts next Tuesday. The Season 9 contestants will start showing up in Hollywood on Friday for a grueling 3 days to whittle down the contestants to the final 24. The promo monkeys have been going crazy producing commercials. The entertainment shows are running features on the show. The judges are dusting off their standard phrases. Ryan is practicing his “This! Is! American! Idol!”. Simon may have even purchased a new econo package of Hanes V-necks. Ready or not, Season 9 is here.

As part of this wind-up, we’ve been featuring some of the contestants who are rumoured to have made it to Hollywood. Naturally, spoilers are not perfect so some of the names or faces we put to the names may be wrong. Also, with around 170 names floating around out there, we may never see some of these contestants (prior to the voting rounds, we may not even see some of the contestants that make it to the final 24).

So, this seemed as good a time as any to list a round-up of the previewed contestants in case some people missed some of them. Also, I’ve noticed that Brian over at Idol Chatter has been running his own preview series. Rather than repeat what he’s done (since we’re never going to cover all the contestants), I’ll include links to his articles here. VFTW is also running a series (and you can find contestant threads in their Season 9 forums). The Idol Forum wiz’s have also accumulated a vast amount of information on the contestants, but you need an account to view them.

Links to articles after the jump.
