American Idol 9 - Best of the Rest Auditions

After a month of often vomit-inducing audition shows, “American Idol” finally let us have a look at some of the contestants going on to the Hollywood round next week.

Miss Seacrest said that only 181 contestants out of the more than 100,000 auditioned made it to Hollywood. Next week, the process will begin to whittle that number down to 24 – meaning 12 boys and 12 girls.

A quick Google search will tell you who the Top 24 are – since those episodes were filmed weeks ago. The list may or may not change as the live shows approach in mid February, but I think it’s pretty accurate.

Who did we see tonight that made it to the Top 24? There are some potential spoilers ahead, so stop reading now if you don’t want to know.

Lacey Brown (pictured), who auditioned with “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” is one of them. She made Top 50 last year and they chose Megan Joy instead. A huge mistake because Megan Joy was like Big Bird on crack and mostly squawked.

Lee Dewyze, who mostly hummed “Ain’t No Sunshine,” has also apparently made the Top 24, so he must get better in Hollywood. Or not.
