American Idol judges 2011

Once again Joe’s Place has the inside scoop on the rumored list of our Idol contestants for American Idol 2011.  Stop reading now if you don’t want spoilers

Be on the lookout for these contestants as they continue with the auditions this week in Milwaukee and beyond. You can also check out any familiar names we’ve already heard through the first few audition episodes. 

Earlier rumors this season suggested that the Top 40 had already been down-selected to the Top 20. Not the case.
