Ten hopefuls on American Idol can rest easy now knowing that they are safe in the show’s top ten.
During Thursday night’s broadcast, ten contestants got the good news while ten more were sent packing their bags.
Idol changed things up from previous seasons by allowing each top ten contestant sing a celebratory song instead of giving the stage to the those who were eliminated.
You could feel the spirits flying in the room with each performance. It was simply amazing to see the contestants letting go and singing their hearts out without having to worry about getting criticized by the judges.
Spoiler alert! Dim the lights and here we go…
The five guys that made the cut are Devin Velez, Burnell Taylor, Lazaro Arbos, Paul Jolley, and Curtis Finch, Jr.
Unfortunately, Elijah Liu, Charlie Askew, Cortez Shaw, Nick Boddington, and Vincent Powell were all told to exit stage right and won’t be coming back this season.
As for my predictions about the guys, I was correct for four out the five, guessing that Boddington would be staying instead of Jolley. But, I was wrong.
Which girls are safe? Candice Glover, Janelle Arthur, Angie Miller, Amber Holcomb, and Kree Harrison.
Again, I predicted four out of the five. I thought that Arthur would be going home but it looks like she’ll be sticking around. Going home are Tenna Torres, Adriana Latonio, Breanna Steer, Zoanette Johnson, and Aubrey Cleland.
So, your season 12 top 10:
- Devin Velez
- Burnell Taylor
- Lazaro Arbos
- Paul Jolley
- Curtis Finch, Jr.
- Candice Glover
- Janelle Arthur
- Angie Miller
- Amber Holcomb
- Kree Harrison
I highly approve of the top ten. Great job, voters.
