American Idol Top 24: The Breakdown

by at . Comments

It's official: the top 24 contestants on this year's American Idol were announced last night. Were you satisfied with the selections? Any obvious snubs?

We think the commercials touting this season as the most talented ever might actually ring true, as The Hollywood Gossip staff was impressed by singers male and female, young and old, rocking and serenading.
