Last night on American Idol, we met 14 of the Top 24 finalists who will start singing for your votes next week. As usual, with the "Green Mile" episodes, there were some huge surprises (Lauren Gray going home???? Really, AI?). But some of the early favorites, including two country gals, sailed through to the live performance show with flying colors. Our American Idol expert, Steve Thompson, offers up his full analysis of the finalists we've seen thus far . . . and even ranks them in order of worst to best! Take a look!
