Unveiling the top 24 contestants for season 10 was a long and painful process for “American Idol” fans.
The top 24 were revealed over two nights. Who was sent home? Who deserved a spot?
Colton Dixon and Jacee Badeaux were both sent home and instead Brett Loewenstern made it to the finals. I thought Colton Dixon deserved a spot in the top 24. Did you see his piano solo? Watch the video below.
The judges encouraged the two eliminated singers to continue pursuing their dreams. “You’re all so young,” Jennifer Lopez said. “You can come back as many times as you want.”
“Please come back,” Randy Jackson urged them.
Jessica Cunningham has auditioned for Idol more times than you can count on one hand and she should have received a spot in the top 24.
DeAndre Brackensick also should have taken a spot in the top 24 too.
Other top 40 members who were sent home were Chris Medina, Lakeisha Lewis, Hollie Cavanagh, Alex Ryan, Brittany Mazur, Erin Kelly, Jessica Cunningham and Keisha Renee.
