American Idol: Top 24 Revealed

Feb 24 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Lauren, Denise, and Scotty started the night off, but were quickly told by the professional recording artists team that they had the wrong song. They were advised to go back and learn a new song..which they did. This was pretty much the same advise given to many of the contestants.

Sixty one remaining contestants teamed up in groups of two or three to see who would be in the top 24. The first group wowed the judges with “Can’t Buy Me Love,” and the second team thrilled Jennifer with their performance, and Steven felt that it was over the top. Jacob, who had never sang a Beatle’s song, was told by Randy that he did very well.

“All the Lonely People,” and “Let it Be” were also among the performances which the judges loved, as did a duet of “Don’t Ya Leave Ya Now.” Jerome Bell, Lakeeisha, and Tatynisia sang , “I’ll Never Dance With Another,” and received rave reviews from the judges. Kendra and Paul sang their duet, which was also terrific.

While in Vegas, Ashley decided to marry her fiance, although the honeymoon was short lived, since she had to get right back to work. She sang “We Can Work it Out” alongside Sophia, but Steven felt that it was not their strongest performance. Randy said it was not hot at all. Jennifer seemed to agree.

Lauren, Scotty and Denise were back to try again with “You Say Goodbye, and I Say Hello,” and as they sang and danced around a telephone booth, the judges laughed. Jennifer felt it was a harder song for three people to perform, and she felt the song did not fit them. Steven and Randy agreed that it was a great performance, but that the song was not a great choice.

Among the first seven contestants to make it through were Lauren Alaina and Scotty. Molly, the White House Intern, Denise Jackson, and the newlywed Ashley were among those going home.

Soon the top 40 turned into 24, and in the end, the top 24 for American Idol were as follows:
