Top 9 American Idol Finalists Revealed
The top 9 finalists have been decided on season 12 of hit reality talent show from Fox American Idol, which eliminated Curtis Finch Jr. during this week’s live results show.
St Louis , MO’s Curtis, who’s 24, was the first finalist to be sent off after he got the lowest number of votes from viewers at home during the performance show, in which the top 10 finalists sang songs from previous American Idols.
“This has really changed my life and I don’t want it to end, ever,” said Curtis in a video montage that followed his (as it turned out) performance that cost him his place on the show.
But when Randy Jackson said that he and fellow judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey were not going to prevent his departure using the “Judges’ Save”(on which they would have needed to be unanimously agreed) it was curtains for Curtis.
However, he takes with him plenty of positive comments from the judges, who urged him to keep singing.
During the broadcast, more than 26 million votes were cast, and for the first time the Top 10 were named in the order in which they were voted for. The remaining contestants are:
- Janelle Arthur
- Candice Glover
- Angela Miller
- Lazaro Arbos
- Amber Holcomb
- Burnell Taylor
- Paul Jolley
- Devin Velez
