American Idol Male Semifinalists: Best of the Rest

by at . Comments

After one night of men performing on American Idol, three favorites have emerged in our eyes:

  1. Jacob Lusk
  2. James Durbin
  3. Casey Abrams

Earlier today, we posted each of their semifinalist performances, which can be viewed HERE, HERE and HERE. But other top 12 contenders also stood out.

Brett Loewenstern surprised us with an attempt to rock out to The Doors. Paul McDonald showcased a unique style/voice. Robbie Rosen went with a lovely ballad and Clint Jun Gamboa tried to prove that karaoke isn't always a four-letter word.

Sit back and taken in a slew of auditions from last week below. Which of these men have a solid shot at the finals?

You think you know Clint's personality based on what Fox has shown? Do you also think the Real World on MTV is actually the real world? You don't know Clint. Clint has been one of the few that have consistently had solid performance. So here's a suggestion: don't believe everything Fox is feeding you and LISTEN to his vocal quality.

Regardless, I know I'll be disappointed thursday night. There are too many good guys this year to keep just 5. I'm bummed. I want Clint and Jordan to go home. I hate their personalities. They're too arrogant. I love Brett but I'm afraid his performance didn't do his voice justice. He doesn't know who he is yet. I love jovany's voice! But he didn't nothing with his song and I'm afraid we won't see him again. I really hope america gets it that casey is amazing. I'm nervous.

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.
