American Idol Finalists: Party Time!

by at . Comments

While fans argue about the final 12 on American Idol (Paige Miles over Katelyn Epperly and Lilly Scott? Really?!?), this season's recently-named finalists attended a party in their honor last night.

Matt Giraud, Scott MacIntyre and past contestants were also on hand, as were Cory Monteith and members of the Glee cast.

But the event was all about Crystal Bowersox, Michael Lynche and company. That pair of singers, two of the only contenders in an otherwise mediocre field, celebrated with an airplane ride at the shindig:

As a group, maybe they are not as strong as prior years, but there are individuals who are as good as any there has been on the show. For me, Siobhan Magnus is a must watch contestant. I like her "quirkiness", she can sing and she has the goods as a singer and performer.


This is the worst group of finalists ever to hit the Idol stage. The judges should be ashamed of themselves for picking some of them in the first place. I guess they want to end Idol, cause this group can cause me to change the channel, and I know I am not alone.


I relly like LacyBrown!!!!I love how she sings!!!!And timmy too!!!


American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
