American Idol 24
On Friday night, the top 24 contestants on season seven of American Idol celebrated their accomplished as one, close-knit group.

The singers got together at the Day After Lounge in Hollywood. Ryan Seacrest, Ace Young and Justin Guarini were also on hand, with the latter being impressed by the talent around him.

"The judges have always been saying, 'this is the best year ever' and so on, but this year I really think they got it right," Guarini said.

According to witnesses, some serious flirting has already begun. For example, Kady Malloy, who sang "Unchained Melody" during tryouts, held hands with Colton Berry.

Also, Kristy Lee Cook strutted around the room with a few girlfriends. Sounds like a fun even for all!

The final 12 men take the stage Tuesday night on FOX.
