The top 13 'Idol' contestants are ready for their close-ups
From over 100,000 "Idol" hopefuls, they were whittled down to the top 24. And on Thursday night, the top 24 were nearly halved in a dramatic episode that saw several audience favorites go bye-bye. Now these male and female finalists will battle it out for the ultimate title: "America's Next Top Model"—er, "American Idol."
"American Idol" airs regularly on Wednesdays and Thursdays, at 8 p.m. ET/PT, on Fox.
