There are more American Idol 2013 spoilers for you to enjoy today. Yesterday we discussed spoilers on the progress in Hollywood Week and what sort of changes were rumored to be seen for the Las Vegas round. Perhaps the biggest news was what production might be doing to the voting and just when America can get involved in that process.
Now we have rumors on which male singers have survived the cuts and made it to the American Idol Season 12 Top 20 Boys circle. If these spoilers are accurate then nine of the twenty male finalists have been near-finalists in recent seasons with eight of those being from last season of American Idol.
Update: TIP has updated the list to eliminate and/or rename a couple of names.

What do you think of the names on this list? Are you happy to see so many returning singers from last year or should there be all new faces in this crowd?
The Idol Pad is working on building the same Top 20 list for the girls side of the aisle. Once they have a solid list built we’ll share those spoilers with you as well.

is it because there’s a lack of new talent that all these repeaters are coming back?? if they were THAT GOOD wouldn’t a label already have signed them?? i’m really beginning to wonder about this show. maybe it’s time to finally wind it up and give it a rest. all good things eventually come to an end. and if the powers that be are going to manipulate the show…..
I was pretty surprised by the number of repeats in that list. I wonder if the producers think viewers will already have a built-in interest in these singers if they’re at least a little familiar rather than starting with an entirely new group.
it’s almost as if the producers are getting desperate for viewership, no??
Yeah, I guess they’re always looking to get a little more blood out of that stone.
It seems to me that this show is starting to getting desperate. Why so many repeats?….They didn’t make it last year, did they improve that much since then????
I think the reason for all the repeats is becuase the other two singing shows on TV now. For the past few years there have been many people saying that Idol’s heading down the drain, and no one’s going to watch it. So people decided to go to The Voice or The X Factor becuase those shows are “new” and “popular”.
I’m happy to see Johnny Keyser on the list though, he was good last season.
I truly think this is Idol’s last season though.
C’mon…sounds negative! It doesn’t matter if someone returns if they didn’t make it in a previous season! If they make it moving forward – it’s still a new face on the show! Who cares about the names showing up more than once on preview lists that shouldn’t even be posted yet. AND even at this level of the competition it’s tough to make it through so they learn something and try harder the next round or the next year. It’s all good! I do have one suggestion though…they should try to do something different to keep the show interesting. I think they should bring back one or two of the singers from Hollywood week that the judges had high expectations for. I would love to see Devyn P come back to the show! I KNOW for a fact that this kid will attract a HUGE audience! He can sing! He’s also a real eye-catcher! He had laryngitis during hollywood week and got eliminated just before the top 24 round. He is great & I hope they bring him back somehow with some creative thinking! I won’t watch the show if they don’t bring him back – – Devyn P is! the only reason I would watch! He’s got TONS of fans that hoped to see him this season! BRING HIM BACK!
Idol should do something different and make them all groups and try and find a supergroup guy`s and girls mixed or not put the best voices and create a group singing show
I’m glad Johnny Keyser is on the list.
