Tim Urban American Idol February 24 Apologize

Tim Urban, the Chris Golightly replacement in American Idol 2010 Top 24, chose to sing OneRepublic's "Apologize". I think it was a train wreck... bad falsettos and forgotten lyrics. Simon Cowell could not even hide his frustration as he said that making him go home (after the first 24 contestants with Chris) were chosen was right.

All other judges agreed with Simon. Ellen DeGeneres said that "none of it worked” and she said that Tim "couldn’t hit those high notes.” Everyone agreed he’ll get votes because he’s just "cute" and not because he's a good singer. Tim had an excuse as the song was a last minute switch. Anyway, just look at Tim Urban shirtless photos and you be the judge if you want him in or out.

Aaron Kelly American Idol February 24 Here Comes Goodbye

Aaron Kelly is kind of the "David Archuleta" American Idol Season 9. He's 16 year old and wide-eyed, kind of nervous. Aaron sang "Here Comes Goodbye" by Rascall Flatts

Of course, judges love this cute boy with cute boys. It's a way to get tweens to watch this show! Simon said: ”It actually was quite a good performance…you look as if you are embarrassed to be there…you have to take control of the song…absolutely you will be here next week.” Kara agreed by saying: “You have no idea what your talent is…I like the pop country lane for you… I think you did a great job… We’re going to see incredible things from you.” Randy thought that Aaron Kelly has "a huge voice" and that he's a big fan. Watch Aaron Kelly's Here Come Goodbye performance below:

Todrick Hall American Idol February 24 Since U Been Gone

Todrick Hall came out first in the American Idol Top 12 boys. He sang Kelly Clarkson's Since U Been Gone. I could nearly recognize the song because he twisted it that it became too different from the original.
Todrick Hall Since You've Been Gone
The judges all found the performance good on stage but the vocals just so-so. Simon Cowell even said it was a "crazy arrangement" and Todrick "murdered" the original song. The whole thing was "verging on stupid". Watch his performance below to see if it Todrick is going to stay or going home tomorrow:

American Idol 9 Top 24 Contestants Photos

Last night, 12 guys and 12 girls are declared to be in the official American Idol 9 Top 24 list. Next week, the Top 12 girls will battle it out first on Wednesday (February 24) in the Kodak Theatre. On Thursday (February 25) will be the Top 12 boys' turn. I think it will all be the same drivel in other American Idol seasons that each week, two guys and two girls will bid farewell until the American Idol 9 Top 12 contestants are chosen.

This year's batch of contestants are an interesting mix. We'll still yet to see if Mike Lynch won't be disqualified, but it seems Tim Urban is here to stay in lieu of Chris Golightly who allegedly had an old contract that's why he was kicked off the final 24 contestants. Below are the photos of your Top 12 boys and Top 12 girls in American Idol 9:

Tim Urban Shirtless - American Idol Top 24 Hottie

Despite all the brouhaha over Chris Golightly disqualification, we definitely have no complaints Chris was replaced with a hottie Tim Urban. In the Hollywood rounds, he was the one who sang David Cook’s song. Check Tim Urban’s shirtless photos below.

Tim Urban is waaay hotter that Casey James - the guy who's Kara Dioguardi's favorite. Hmmm, with his long hair though, he looks kind of geeky. Check out the Tim Urban shirtless photos with his hair shorter. What do you think?

Chris Golightly Disqualified, Replaced by Tim Urban?

There's quite a discrepancy in the American Idol Top 24 Official list tonight. It seems early favorite Chris Golightly has not been included in the final list of Top 12 boys. He was obviously replaced by Tim Urban, whose footage was just inserted in the last video clip. What's up with that?
Chris Golightly American Idol Disqualified
We are quite suspicious that it was Chris Golightly who was disqualified and not Big Mike Lynch. Chris Golightly has a video making it to the Top 24 finalists who made it the Hollywood round but he was cut unknowingly (He was in the picture while Ryan Seacrest was making a spiel about the Top 24!). We're still digging the real score about this American Idol 9 Official Top 24 discrepancy. Other than that, we're quite confident about the ones who made it. Cheerio!

UPDATE: Here's the deal with Chris Golightly Disqualified issue:

Ryan Seacrest even confirmed it via a Tweet that it was: "determined that Chris Golightly is ineligible to continue on IDOL, contestant Tim Urban has replaced Golightly as part of the Top 24". Yet, there's still a cloud of mystery behind the disqualification Ryan is not sure about the cause: "must have broken a rule or maybe had previous deal"

However, it was Samantha Mula (Season 9 contestant who was cut) who further enlightened about Chris Golightly's case. In her message, she informed that: "Just got off the phone with Chris GoLightly. He was disqualified yesterday, after already being told he was in the top 24, over some bogus old contract. The contract expired, but they disqualified him for not telling them. He is talking to lawyers, but doubt they can do anything."

Whoa! American Idol has some favoritism going on there with the rules? They let Michael "Big Mike" Lynch go on with the Top 24 slot even though he broke the confidentiality rule, while Chris was not allowed to move on because of the expired contract he did not declare with Idol beforehand. Sucks to be him, eh?

American Idol 9 Top 24 - The Official 2010 24 Finalists Revealed LIVE

So far, we're not wrong about the spoilers we made in the American Idol 9 contestants list. We’re pleasantly surprised Big Mike is still there because rumors have been milling he’s been disqualified. Other than that, all other Top 24 people we’ve listed 3 weeks ago came out as expected. Except for two: Chris Golightly and Paige Dechausse! They Are replaced by Tim Urban and Paige Miles (same first name?).

Though it's quite unnerving the judges did not let Thaddeus Johnson inside the American Idol 9 Top 24. Just see the list below. Did your favorite got through? Were they not cut tonight?

Andrew Garcia Hollywood Week - Straight Up

Indeed, Andrew Garcia is one guy we'll be expecting to make it in the American Idol 9 Top 24. He's got a good vibe that kinds of remind us of Danny Gokey last year. Plus he concocted an exciting acoustic rendition of Paula Abdul's Straight Up rocked the judges.

Andrew Garcia instantly gained raves from the judges. Kara Dioguardi said that his performance was a "genius" and that he "interpreted" a song "similar to what Adam did last year" as he flipped the song to own it. He makes it to the next round obviously. Just watch the video below:

Another contestant in the American Idol Top 24 Leaked List showed up in Denver tonight, Haeley Vaughn from Fort Collins, Colorado is just 15 years old. Her story is touching because she was considered as a "miracle baby". In her audition, she sang Carrie Underwood's "Last Name" and she impressed Simon Cowell with her lisp-y voice.

Casey James Shirtless American Idol Audition

Casey James from Fortworth, Texas is in the American Idol 2010 Leaked Contestants List. In tonight's Denver audition, Casey James sang his version of a John Mayer song "Slow Dancing in the Burning Room". Although his singing prowess is not that grand, he was able to get much attention as the women judges Kara and Victoria are pushing for him while Simon disagreed because he though the show "is not Project Runway". Funny thing is, it was actually Randy Jackson who asked to take his shirt off.

Casey James has a good back story and good looks, it will definitely take him far. Last year, it was Simon's fault bringing in Bikini Girl, now Kara thinks it's their time to be pleased with a male eye candy.
