We're halfway to a completed set of 12 American Idol finalists.
With Danny Gokey, Alexis Grace and Michael Sarver - all of whom were voted through to the next round a week ago - looking on, the show announced its next trio of finalists last night.

Lambert and Iraheta were no-brainers, as they were the only two impressive contestants on Wednesday night's performance show.
Allen, however, was a slight surprise. He beat out Megan Joy Corkrey for the last spot.
Next week, a dozen more semifinalists will compete for three more spots in the competition's finals.
After that, American Idol is switching it up this season: the judges will pick the last three finalists as part of a special wild card round.
