Meet Jimmy Smith – American Idol 2013 Top 40 Spoilers

Jimmy Smith on American Idol 2013

Another new face on the American Idol Top 40 spoilers for Season 12 is Jimmy Smith. He’s a young white male from Nashville who, wait for it, plays the guitar. Production seems to have pressed hard this year to avoid a deck stacked with WGWG’s as there really aren’t but a few this time around. Regardless of whether Jimmy is just another WGWG he’s actually a pretty darn good singer.

Smith has wiped his YouTube channel clean of videos, but his MySpace profile, which indicates he hasn’t updated since May 2011, has a set of four songs you can preview. Someone also pulled down a copy of his cover of “The Secrets That We Keep” which is embedded below.

While the alleged Top 20 guys are all talented, it’s a short list of stand-outs and I’d say Jimmy Smith is one of them. What do you think of his chances on American Idol 2013?

  1. Jimmy Smith is good but a standout? Not hearing it. Singers like him are a dime a dozen on the streets of Nashville but wishing him the best of luck anyway.

  2. Well this guy pales in comparison to Phillip Phillips and if there is a better wgwg on the show this year then this guy won’t be around long. But if he is the only one, then I’d put money on him winning. As for any non-wgwg winning Idol, I’ll believe it when I see it.

  3. I’ve actually heard this guy live, and he’s unreal. Crazy talent, and definitely has the personality to win over America. Hoping the best for him.
