Last night on American Idol 2009, the final 3 performers in season 8′s Top 12 were revealed, and then some. After informing Matt Giruad that he had been given the 12th spot in the Top 12 the judges rescued a dejected Anoop Desai with the news that this season there would be a Top 13 instead. I’ll admit it, the judges shocked me as I did not see that coming at all.

Next week the American Idol 2009 Top 13 singers will enter the Thunderdome where only one will emerge as this season’s American Idol come late May. Congratulations to all the singers who made it. Here is the official Top 13 list:
