This installment of American Idol was drawn out more than most episodes of The Bachelor.
Ryan spent more time ominously building suspense via voiceovers than the contestants spent singing. In the end, at least, seven semifinalists were announced.
Do any of these have the potential to go all the way? We think so. The seven singers we'll see on live shows starting next week are:
- Michael Lynche
- Didi Benami
- Casey James
- Aaron Kelly
- Lee Dewyze
- Todrick Hall
- Katelyn Epperly
