American Idol 2012: Top 42 spoilers include some familiar names

The Idol Pad has revealed some “American Idol 2012” Top 42 spoilers and among those names are two early favorites from Season 10 Scott Dangerfield and Colton Dixon.

Dangerfield wowed fans during his audition but then wasn’t seen from again. We later learned he withdrew from the show. Dixon made it all the way to the Green Mile episode and fans were left shocked when he didn’t make the final cut. Both are getting another shot at season 11 and I wouldn’t be surprised if both make it to the live rounds.

Warning: Spoilers ahead. Stop reading if you don’t want to see spoilers.

  1. hahaha Phillip Phillips :))) Thats funny 😀
    None of these guys sound like a star to me…

  2. Oh, well, then I guess a woman can win this time. So sick of the song-and-dance thing on “American Idol”, anyway.

  3. Oh, well, I guess a woman can win this season. Sick and tired of the song-and-dance thing on “American Idol”, anyway.

  4. Adam Brock is one of the nicest, brightest, most talent young people that you could ever meet. His friends and fans in Pennsylvania wish him the best of luck.

  5. Nothing can ever beat season 10 In my opinion.
    But I’m excited to see what they all bring!

  6. I remember Colton Dixon!I was outraged when he got cut last season, so I’m definitely stoked to learn he’s returning. Can’t wait to see and hear him again. Hope he goes all the way to the live rounds this time!

  7. SCOTT DANGERFIELD!!!!!! YES!  I’m seriously so happy. I was so bummed when he dropped out last year and have been following him on youtube for A YEAR. This is the best news ever!!!

  8. I can’t believe they didn’t put that little girl with the by polar disorder through.  I was so looking forward to hearing her sing.  I wish I could remember her name and look her up.  She was awesome and sounded like an angle.
