American Idol 2012 Top 7 Finalists Revealed – Updated

American Idol 2012 Top 7 finalists

The American Idol 2012 Top 7 finalists were revealed last night when DeAndre Brackensick was eliminated from the competition. Elise Testone and Hollie Cavanagh joined DeAndre before being sent back to safety. After surviving several weeks in the Bottom 3 and at the bottom of our weekly polls it may have been a disappointment to his fans, but most viewers probably weren’t surprised.

Next week on American Idol the remaining singers will take the stage to perform… we don’t know yet. Typically the following week’s theme is revealed by now, but Idol is staying tight lipped on what they’ll be doing. That could mean negotiations are still taking place to use a particular artist’s catalog or it could just mean FOX is dragging its feet. Once we find out more we’ll pass along those details.

Update: Reader Patrick alerted us to Nigel finally revealing this week’s theme: “this decade.” That means it’ll be songs from 2010/2011/2012. You can’t get more modern than that. Nice selection. The mentor will be Akon. Hopefully he won’t throw anyone off the stage.
