American Idol Chooses It's Top 10: But Are Any Of Them Good Enough?

America has spoken. The general public have chosen this year's American Idol Top 10, and there's few surprises in the line-up for season eight of the show. Blessed with good looks and a half-decent voice, Paul Jolley was the first to make it through to the live final on Thursday's show, despite receiving only lukewarm support from Nicki Minaj and her fellow judges. It's difficult to imagine Jolley as a frontrunner for the competition and we predict he'll be packing his bags pretty early.

A shoo-in for the Top 10, Curtis Finch Jr duly made it through after his sensational version of John Legend's 'So High' this week, while fan favorites Devin Velez an Lazaro Abros also made it through comfortably. From the girls, Janelle Arthur made it through, singing Dierks Bentley's Home as her 'victory song.' After a couple of so-so performances in recent weeks, home is probably closer than she thinks. 

Strong vocalist Candice Glover and Angie Miller also made it through, with the former singing Mary J. Blige's 'Goin Down' and establishing herself as the competition's most accomplished R&B singer. Filling out the Top 10 were Kree Harrison, Amber Holcomb and Burnell. 

Next week, the finalists take to the stage in Hollywood, though opinion on social networks is that this could be one of the weakest finals in American Idol history. Is it time for Fox to come up with something new?
