american idol (2011) top 13 contestants
So America (and the Judges) have chosen and it’s time to meet the Top 13 contestants for AMERICAN IDOL (2011). They are: Casey Abrams, Naima Adedapo, Lauren Alaina, James Durbin, Ashthon Jones, Stefano Langone, Jacob Lusk, Scotty McCreery, Paul McDonald, Thia Megia, Haley Reinhart, Karen Rodriguez and Pia Toscano.

The three wild cards chosen by the judges were Naima Adedapo, Ashthon Jones and Stefano Langone.

The Top 13 will take the stage for the first time on Wednesday, March 9 at 8pm on FOX. The live results will be announced the following night, Thursday, March 10 at 8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed. The results show will also feature performances by Adam Lambert and Diddy-Dirty Money with Skylar Grey.

And in case you’re curious, this season’s farewell song will be a remake of Simple Minds’ 1985 smash hit “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” sung by David Cook.

Personally, I’m fine with the top 13 because the only four contestants that I care about made it, they are Paul, Casey, Thia and Lauren. But did your favorites make it? And if they did, who will you be rooting for next Wednesday?
