American Idol 2013 begins Hollywood Week Wednesday (Feb.6). Early favorites from the auditions gear up their vocal chords for this challenge to impress judges Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj, and Randy Jackson. The Top 40 has been leaked earlier, but how accurate could it be?
Spoiler Alert: The names below may or may not turn out to be this year's AI Hollywood Top 40. Many 'Idol' bloggers have posted this to their sites, which has been a common practice among avid viewers. This particular list came from a blog called, "The Idol Pad."
Top 20 Females: Adriana Latonio, Amber Holcomb, Angela Miller, Aubrey Cleland, Brandy Hotard, Breanna Steer, Candice Glover, Cristabel Clack, Isabel Pasqualone, Janelle Arthur, Jenny Beth Willis, Jett Hermano, Juliana Chahayed, Kamaria Ousley, Kree Harrison, Melinda Ademi, Rachel Hale, Shubha Vedula, Tenna Torres, and Zoanette Johnson.
Top 20 Males: Bryant Tadeo, Burnell Taylor, Charlie Askew, Chris Watson, Cortez Shaw, Curtis Finch, Jr., David Willis, Devin Velez, Elijah Liu, Gurpreet Singh Sarin, Jimmy Smith, Johnny Keyser, Joshua "Josh" Holiday, Joshua "Josh" Jada Davila, Kevin Harris, Lazaro Arbos, Mathenee Treco, Nick Boddington, Paul Jolley, and Vincent "Vince" Powell.
Notably present on the list are: Lazaro, the young man who overcomes his stuttering predicament when he sings; Burnell, who made Mariah cry during his auditions; and Cristabel, who took on Alicia Keys' "If I Ain't Got You" in San Antonio.
Notably missing are: Kez Ban, the quirky "Wandering" singer whose original composition impressed the judges (and many YouTube viewers); Micah, who performed an engaging rendition of "Chicken Fried" as if he had no speech problem; and Adam Sanders, who brought the house down during auditions with "I'd Rather Go Blind."
The accompanying photo is posted to the American Idol Facebook page to drum up the excitement for this week's Hollywood episodes. AI shouts out, "After all is said and done in Hollywood, only 20 guys and 20 girls will make the cut. Will your favorite be one of them?"
