The Beatles

Charlie vs Aubrey: Aubrey - for Tour only.

Season 12 Week 8 Thursday Reactions

Season 12 Week 8 Thursday - Top 20 III

Top 10 Selected.
Five girls, five guys.

It seems they got to the Top 10, and thus the Idol Tour, with just one vote from the viewers. In the past, there were a couple of more voting rounds before the Top 10. I'm not sure what the thinking is in doing it this way, and I'm not sure if it's good or bad.

Paul Jolley - In.
Burnell Taylor - In.
Curtis Finch, Jr. - In.
Devin Velez - In.
Lazaro Arbos - In.

I got three of them.

Janelle Aurthur - In.
Candice Glover - In.
Angela Miller - In.
Amber Holcomb - In.
Kree Harrison - In.

I got four of them.
