Ladies & Gents: Our American Idol Top 24!

February 25th, 2011 // 1 Comment

Well, America, it seems we have our top 24 contestants to compete on American Idol. And one special guy, James Durbin – who suffers from Tourette’s and Asperber Syndrome, made the cut, being told by Steven Tyler, “I think you’re going to go onto great heights as high as you sing.”

The 21-year-old, who has a young child with his wife Heidi, was only nine-year-old when his musician father died from a drug overdose and was overcome when told he was moving on in the competition.


Yeesh…you’d think you’d steer clear of the music biz from an experience like that? Who are you happy made it into the top 24? Is there anybody you think should have been cut?

Check out all the contestants in the gallery and see them now before the AI machine starts waxing, plucking, polishing and dressing them!

    The “American Idol” with Simon held the viewers attention because we knew he would be totally objective, and helpful to the contestants by showing how they could improve. This “new Idol” is a major disappointment because of the two new judges. I only watched the first two episodes because it was so boring, and just by chance, when Lopez had her meltdown.
    If Fox wants to continue with “Idol” they need to look for judges who do not need to be well know entertainers, just objective and inteligent. After all we did not know Simeon and he was a major hit.
