We have our top 24 contestants for American Idol Season 7, but did you wonder who some of them were? I was trying to post a little background as I listed the top 24 contestants on this page, but there were a couple of them I never saw [their audition] during Hollywood week. Well, American Idol's producer, Nigel Lythgoe has cleared up the confusion. There are actually a couple of reasons we might not see someone's audition, even though they've made it to the next level. Obviously a contestant's story is going to get the most airtime. For instance, Josiah Leming received a lot of airtime, but didn't make it in the top 24. You remember him... the kid who lived in his car. On the flip side, Jason (last name not specified, but guessing Castro) received almost no airtime, yet made it in the top 24. Nigel explains the reason for this is song clearance. If they don't get a song clearance in time, they obviously cannot air the audition. You can read more regarding American Idol 7 contestant airtime HERE. It makes total sense then, that the American Idol contestants are able to choose their own songs during theme weeks, but only have a choice of specific songs to choose from. The first theme week will be based on the sixties. The American Idol contestants will be choosing from a list of 50 approved songs from the 1960's. I bet Amanda Overmyer is pretty happy about that. You remember Amanda, the Harley riding nurse who seems to have one style... the sixties sound. Also something new this year for American Idol is that the results show has been expanded to one hour. During the one hour results show, we will see "Where Are They Now?" segments on previous American Idol contestants.
