Watching the American Idol Top 13 contestants learn they had been chosen as finalists was one of the biggest highlights of the competition so far this season. We love seeing the wild joy in their faces when an American Idol hopeful realizes they have made it into the finals and could possibly be the next Kelly Clarkson, Phillip Phillips or Carrie Underwood in the making.
We don’t know yet who will emerge as the stars of the future from the American Idol 2014 finalists this season. Right now, they are just nervous bundles of potential about to go into their first live finals show. Now is the time that we love the most, when all of them are dreaming big and hoping for the moon. We wish them all good luck!
