American Idol Exclusive Video: Top 10 Talk Studio Debuts, Styling Swag and Lifelong Friendships

American Idol‘s Top 10 contestants are a photogenic bunch — check out their official (and gorgeous) Season 12 portraits if you need evidence — and better still, they spilled a little more intel about themselves as they worked it for the cameras.

Which singer has never before been inside a recording studio? Who’s already getting verrrry comfortable with access to hair and makeup pros and designer clothes? And which contestant has been surprised by the fast and unexpected formation of lifelong friendships over the past few weeks?

    All Angie was missing was a Miss Congeniality sash and a tiara. I think Jolley stole it when she wasn’t looking.

      No one mentionned pageant before Jimmy came up with that stupid idea. She is there cause she demonstrated artistry. I don’t see anything pageant about her apart from being a very beautiful girl. She is highly marketable that’s for sure.

      • deedee says:

        No one mentioned pageant before? The blogs were only swarming with such comments before Jimmy mentioned it. That’s because Jimmy takes his cues from the online Idol chatter.

      • Jay says:

        Yes, Angie is pretty but I think her makeup and hair makes her look pageant-y. If she toned down the eye makeup, stayed away from that red lipstick she often wears, and changed up those sweep-across bangs she’d probably lose that cookie-cutter, pageant look.

      No wonder we end up with cruddy singers making top 5….stop Pia Toscanoing this girl everyone!!

    Is this video on Youtube?

    Amber is a very good looking girl and has an excellent voice. She would have a good path to the win and have a real career if Kree and Candice were not on a different level vocally.

    If Candice win you’ve got another Melanie Amaro on your hands. A singer with no easy market and singles that would not be compatible with Idol’s sales demographic. Kree will be right back into the world of singing on song demos. She isnt marketable enough to be anywhere close to the Kelly Clarkson-esque star.

    For all the tortured casting and exclusion, Nigel really screwed up his chance to create a winner that can win after the initial glow wears off.

    • My Alter Ego says:

      Winning might not be in Candice’s best interests, in the long run. But being in the final two or three would help position her for pursuing her music career in the way that she wants to.

    • karen says:

      I don’t think America is that shallow about Kree Harrison. She is a real deal artist with an iconic voice. She is going to soar. She will have a die-hard audience for the rest of her career. It may not be a Beyonce type of career, but why should it? Substance over image will trump in her case.

    What a sweet, likeable group they are together — even Curtis didn’t come across as obnoxiously as he usually does. What’s up with that?

    I’m sad Keith wasn’t in the photoshoot to take his shirt off. :(

  6. Mara says:

    Well, they made sure to cast 100% gay guys, probably to help a girl win. I’m not complaining. Even with this drastic action, a guy still may win idol….

    Angie has Miley Cyrus teeth. It’s too bad she has that disney/ christian/ boring thing going on. Maybe they can help shake her image and attitude up a bit?

    • Dayrah says:

      I still think Paul is the only gay guy.
      Lazaro and Burnell seem totally straight to me. Curtis is just irritating so I try to ignore him as much as possible. I guess with Devin it’s a possibility, but it never crossed my mind that he was gay. He’s just fashionable.
