While there may have been close to 40 million votes cast before American Idol revealed its top 10 for the season, the judges seem to be split on the finalists. In fact, Keith Urban was downright surprised – not by who was chosen, but by who was not chosen!
When the finalists were chosen by America on American Idol, in a new twist this season, the judges had no clue who was chosen until the contestants stepped out on stage. Resident dawg, Randy Jackson admitted that the judges had no clue what was happening, but also appeared to be pleased with those that were voted in. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Jackson commented “America got it right. I think they picked the right top 10,” but not everyone is so sure of that.
In fact, Country Music crooner, Keith Urban was shocked by the results, but it was not about who was actually chosen, but more about who was missing from the top 10. When it was his turn to speak to The Hollywood Reporter, Urban told them: “There’s a few who did a really stellar job in Las Vegas.” Who does he feel got jipped out of a spot in the top 10? Nick Boddington, Elijah Liu, and Aubrey Cleland, Keith revealed.
What do Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey think of the top 10? Um, yeah, who really cares what they think?
