Ladies & Gents: Our American Idol Top 24!

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!
