American Idol

Season 12 Top 10 Contestants

The American Idol 2013 Top 20 were slashed down to just 10 remaining finalists in the Season 12 semi-finals. As we all know, once the judges turn the voting over to viewers, it’s not always who we expect. Sometimes the best singers don’t go through due to voting snafus. 

The girls were particularly tough, and viewers were likely very torn on who would get their votes. With the exception of the hot mess that was Zoanette’s rendition of Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got To Do With It” and Adriana Lationio’s “pageanty” performance, they were all superb during the semi-finals rounds. 

The guys had some very clear frontrunners in Curtis, Devin, and Burnell since the beginning, but the last two spots were anyone’s to fill. It was tough, but we predicted Lazaro Arbos would make it due to his popularity with the viewers and Nick, as his performance was one of the strongest. Sadly, Nick lost out as Paul Jolley stole his spot. Vincent has been amazing, but it’s interesting to note that he had the least amount of Twitter followers, so he may not have had the fan support.
