WKEF-TV ABC 22 News :: News - Good Morning - Idol Chatter: Top 13 Revealed

Idol Chatter: Top 13 Revealed

A big night on Idol-as the Top 13 contestants are revealed.
Five guys and five girls were voted in by America...and the final 3 wild card contestants were selected by the judges.

Of the contestants not selected by America, five got the chance to sing for the judges.  At the end of the night, the judges picked their final three.

America did a great job of voting for the contestants with the strongest performances during rush week- and really seemed to focus on selecting true artists.

Ryan ratteld off the Top 10 very quickly, and the rest of the night revolved around watching the last 5 sing for their lives.


The three that were selected by the judges...

Jena (Geena) Irene-- Easily the strongest performance of the night.  She played the keyboard and belted out her song--handled the pressure very well.  There was no doubt she would go through.

Kristen O'Connor-  The nurse let her nerves get to her a little, but the judges seemed confident that she deserved to be in the Top13.  She had better performances during auditions, so she should have potential to wow us with her big voice.


It was a tough call on who should get the final spot--as the rest of the performances were a little rough.

CJ Harris snags the last spot-but the judges were disappointed in his save song...saying that he and the band made some errors that threw off the entire performance. 


Saying good-bye...

Spencer Lloyd stood out during auditions as the cute guys who showed promise as a singer and artist early on.  Although the teenage girls seemed to love him during rush week-he did not get enough votes from America to get through.  He missed the mark on his final performance-and it was pretty obvious that the judges would not be sending him on as soon as he finished his song.  He made some poor song choices along the way--if he can make some adjustments, focus on artistry and learn from the experience-he could be a viable contender.

One of these Top 13 will be the next American Idol--Your votes will decide it all!
