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?
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?
