Predictions: American Idol 10 Top 12

Prediction Top 12.jpg

First things first: Every Thursday at 11 PM ET, visit Rickey TV for our weekly “Secret Show Gone Wild” with my co-hosts Noelle and Gabe where we talk about all things American Idol (and then some). You can also tune in to hear me sing “baby lock them doors” which we have adopted as our theme song for the season! :) We’re still tweaking the format (and schedule — we’ve been starting late at 12 midnight) but we may have special guests as well on the show. I’ve already invited Jim Cantiello (again), Shirley Halperin of The Hollywood Reporter and Richard Rushfield of The Daily Beast — we just need to schedule them.

Also, you should follow me on Twitter or Facebook for announcements when the show is on.

At any rate, last Thursday, we attempted to form a Top 12 from the Top 24 of this season and this is what Noelle, Gabe and I plus the chatroom came up with. (Note: This was before the spoilers came out for the Top 12 boys and my personal choices for this list have already changed.)

1. Naima Adedapo
2. Lauren Alaina
3. Thia Megia
4. Pia Toscano
5. Karen Rodriguez
6. Julie Zorrilla

1. Paul McDonald
2. Scotty McCreery
3. Casey Abrams
4. Robbie Rosen
5. Tim Halperin
6. Brett Lowenstern

These guys almost made the list:

7. Stefano Langone
8. Jacob Lusk

What do you guys think? I think this list is wrong. LOL Next week, we’ll try to predict elimination order (and winner) once the Top 12 is revealed.

shouldn't we all wait for the girls and boys to sing first when they get included in the top 24 before we could come out with a top 12? because any of them could easily BOMB during the live competition..just sayin!

I think there will be a shortage of girls in the top 12....Maybe 8 guys and 4 girls and a wildcard. A few people chosen, in my opinion aren't that talented as singers, but are "hot". For example, Julie Zorrilla, Ta-Tynisha, and in the history of Idol, the "hot" girls usually don't get too far unless they have the voices to match the bodies/face.

I hope those who scream a lot and over-the-top performers will be eliminated outright!

I go for Scotty and Thia. Another boy will win this year!

I'm still in mourning for Deandre Kamele Brackensick. I loved that boy! So unique and talented. The judges should be ashamed for sending him home. Sounded and looked like and angel.

i am surprised that Rickey didn't include that overrated screaming machine in the top 12 list.

At this point the only one I hope makes it is James Durbin.

Nobody likes Clint?

Yes, I agree Clint is certainly one of the best singers in the group but I beg to disagree on your comment about his perceived arrogance - he's not at all! And oh yes, I agree about his outrageous glasses.

Lee

Clint is one of the best singers this season, but he's arrogant and over the top with his glasses. Just sayin'.

Not sure about the gals, yet--but guys:
Paul, Casey, Jacob, Scotty, James and Clint. Not really what I would pick--but what I think will happen.

yeah, I thought it was top 13?? top 5 girls, top 5 boys + 3 wild cards (one from each judge)? Rickey, please clarify!!

Rickey

Right now I am inclined to think 2 instead of 3.

Noelle

Oh how my picks have changed. I am officially discouraged.

This format blows. Can you imagine if they had used this in season 7? And say..Archuleta only had one night to prove himself and never got to do Imagine? That would have sucked.

Is it a top 12 or 13?

Rickey
Rickey

I've changed my list as well -- but I still have Robbie in there. But remember what Gabe said: Robbie could be the non-shocker shocker!

Devon

Pretty much right except Haley Reinhart should be in there : D

So basically the ppl who formed this list are lambert fans lol. McCreery is really gonna make much better performances go home, his fanbase is rather large for someone who has done really poorly thus far. I imagine he will be a VFTW person too.

Noelle

"So basically the ppl who formed this list are lambert fans"

LOL....No.

Oh and I think Jacob Lusk will make it anyway(unfortunately) because he should be a guaranteed wild card pick... Even if America does not like the dragulator

I'm hoping Rachel Zevita makes the top 12!

I would like

Guys:
Casey Abrams

Brett Loewenstern
Stefano Langone/Robbie Rosen

Girls:
Pia Toscano
Rachel Zevita
Karen Rodriguez
Lauren Turner
Naima Adedapo
Julie Zorrilla
Haley Reinhart/Thia Megia

Again this is who I hope will make it through. And I think it was a top 13 wasn't it, Rickey? 10 + 3 wildcards. The girls were tougher to choose from, which is great.

JAMES DURBIN!!! WHY IS EVERYONE ON HERE FORGERING JAMES, HE IS GREAT, HE CAN NOT ONLY SCREAM, BUT HE CAN SING BALLADS, AND HE IS GOING TO WIN AND I AM SO HAPPY FOR HIS FAMILY! IF THAT KID DOES NOT WIN, ANYONE WILL PICK HIM UP OF THEY ARE STUPID! JUST MY OPINION FROM THE GET GO AND IT'S LOOKIN GREAT!

Out of the girls, there wasn't to many I liked:
Pia
Rachel
Lauran Alaina
Julie Zorilla
Thia Megia
Haley Reinhart

And of those girls I like Pia Toscano, Julie Zorilla, and Lauren Aliana

STILL JAMES TO WIN IT ALL! ADAM LAMBERT GOT SCREWED!

Ana

I think you better switch Jacob with Scotty and Brett.
Otherwise everything seems pretty on the mark.

Go Casey!

<b>I really hate Clint and that black guy who was asking people to audition for him during group rounds. I can't even remember his name - which is good. Also, is it just me or does it feel like this season has repeats of previous seasons?</b>

Casey Abrams = Taylor Hicks
James Durbin = Adam Lambert
Thia Megia = Jasmine Trias
Robbie Rosen = Eliot Yamin
Lauren Alaina = Allison Iraheta
Naima Adedapo = Nadia Turner
Clint Jun Gamboa = Juanita Baker
