After weeks and weeks and weeks of auditions, the American Idol top 12 were announced last night. The top 10 – based on votes – were Maddie Walker, Jax, Tyanna Jones, Sarina Joi-Crowe, and Joey Cook for the girls and Qaasim Middleton, Nick Fradiani, Daniel Seavey, Clark Beckham, and Rayvon Owen for the guys. The wild cards went to Adanna Duru and Quentin Alexander.
I was under the impression that I was the only person in America still watching American Idol, but, um, apparently not. There is no way in hell Daniel, who’s fresh from his mother’s womb, and Qaasim, who’s a seizure waiting to happen, would have made it to the top 24, let alone the top 10, based on my votes. I’m shocked Daniel and Qaasim were voted in over Quentin Alexander and Mark Andrew. Thankfully, the judges saved Quentin (and the season for me) with a wild card, but I mourn the loss of Mark. This competition needs Quentin.

This season’s new format – where contestants learn their fate seconds before they have to sing – is terrible. Basically, Ryan Seacrest announces the name of someone who’s safe, that contestant rushes to the stage to sing, the judges have 10 seconds to talk, that contestant is rushed off the stage, and rinse and repeat. The contestants are on edge, waiting to find out if they’re in or if they’re out, and then they have to sing stressed out and/or hyped up. It sucks. But, all that said, I just can’t quit American Idol. Fingers crossed the tweens can quit Daniel. And soon.
