The American Idol Top 20 Will Be a Top 24?

Green Mile Update via JoesPlace:

They are still in the process of filming the green mile episode, but an interesting piece of news is that instead of cutting the top 40 to the top 20 – Idol has decided to make it – as in years past – a TOP 24!!!  Wild, no?  So that means with 18 Girls and 22 boys in the top 20 – only 6 girls and 10 boys will be cut..

UPDATE:  It sounds like only 17 girls were in the Green Mile Episode. They are only cutting 5 girls.  Was someone DQed?

Who do you want to see in that top 24?

So, does that mean 7 contestants each night will be sent home in the Sudden Death rounds instead of 5 so the judges can fill out the rest of the Top 12/13 with wildcard picks?
