SPOILER ALERT! The Idol Pad compiling list of Season 11 Top 42, plus latest American Idol news

Steven Tyler Jennifer Lopez Randy Jackson American Idol

Season 11 of American Idol premieres Wednesday, January 18, 2012 at 8/7c on FOX.  I always say that I don’t really care for the early rounds.  I start paying attention after Hollywood Week eliminations happen, and really tune in when they’re down to the Top 12.  The Idol Pad has been updating their blog with as many of the Top 42 contestants as they’ve been able to confirm.  They’re also compiling a list of the Top 60 eliminated in Las Vegas Round, as many of the 300+ contestants that made it to Hollywood Week (whew! I had no idea so many people get that far).

I’ve never cited The Idol Pad before, but I’m taking the information as truth until/unless I find otherwise.   Here’s 32 of the Top 42 that were posted on The Idol Pad at the time I last checked.  No hometown info on them, but if you recognize someone on the list, leave a comment and I’ll start adding that info.

In regards to the Top 42 list, AmericanIdolNet.com mentioned:

“Dangerfield wowed fans during his audition but then wasn’t seen from again. We later learned he withdrew from the show. Dixon made it all the way to the Green Mile episode and fans were left shocked when he didn’t make the final cut. Both are getting another shot at season 11 and I wouldn’t be surprised if both make it to the live rounds.”
